Make flower magnets
Making flower magnets is a quick, easy and inexpensive gift idea. They are fun to make and easy so the children can help out too.
What you need:
- A bunch of fake flowers from a haberdashery store or bargain store
- A pair of kitchen scissors (the plastic can be stiff)
- Superglue or hot glue gun
- Plain round magnets from craft stores or bargain stores
Pull the flower tops off the wire stems.
Hold the flower together tightly and cut the stem at the base so that all you have remaining is the flower.
Still holding the flower together, squeeze a little dab of glue between each layer of petals to hold the flower together. Allow to dry.
Add glue to the centre of the magnet and fix the flower into place. Allow to dry.
