Decorate your fridge with button magnets. They are really easy to make and useful for pinning notes, shopping lists, photographs etc.



Time: 10 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Buttons
Magnetic circles or advertising magnets
Scissors
Glue gun

Materials


Method
Choose your buttons. If you're after vintage buttons, stop by your nearest thrift store or charity shop for cheaper, interesting alternatives.
You can buy magnetic circles from craft stores, but I used a real estate advertising magnet, and cut into appropriate sized circles for each button with scissors.

Magnets ready to glue


Using a glue gun (younger ones might need help here) stick your magnetic circles to the back of your buttons.
