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.
