DIY Mirror Magnets in no time!

Sometimes you just need an easy craft that can be finished in minutes. For me, I almost always turn to making magnets when I need something to do with my hands while just passing time. I decided to grab some of my favorite paint colors and make these colorful and fun magnets to brighten up my fridge!

The hardest part of this project is waiting for the paint to dry, so you’ll feel good about getting something accomplished with minimal effort. When you’re done, you’ll have a bright and colorful magnet set!

What You Need:

How to Make Them:

Use your flat paintbrush to paint a solid block along one side of the mirror. You want to make the line as straight as possible. You will likely need a few layers, so let the paint dry between layers. If you’re using acrylic paint, be extra careful with the second layer as it will likely peel. If you’re using glass paint, you can tape off your sections to make the line super straight. This technique is not recommended for acrylic paint.

Paint a second block perpendicular to your first block so you’ll have a little bit of mirror peeking through. Let dry completely (at least a few hours)

Apply some Mod Podge onto the painted sections and a little bit onto the edges of the mirror to help seal the paint. Let dry completely. I recommend overnight.

Flip the mirrors over and glue the magnets onto the back center. Place a book or something flat and heavy onto the magnets and let the glue dry.

Once the glue is dry, you’re ready to decorate!
