3 Magnet DIYs With Autumn Leaves
Creating decorations and doing crafts are great ways to start off the fall season this year. With the days growing shorter and the weather getting colder, here are a few fun indoor magnet DIYs you can do with fall leaves:
1. Fall Leaf Resin Magnets
For this project, use this tutorial to create the resin leaves. In addition to making them ornaments, you can use superglue to attach neodymium magnets to the back of the resin leaves. So, now you have cool leaf resin magnets for your fridge that double as ornaments.
2. Laminated Leaf Magnets
If you don’t have the supplies to make resin, try this tutorial for laminating autumn leaves. All you need are leaves, neodymium magnets, glue and a small laminator. After drying the leaves for a few days between books, you can put them in the laminator. Next, glue the magnets to the back of the leaves. When the glue is dry, you have adorable fall themed magnets!
3. Magnetic Ghost Leaves
This magnet project is a perfect addition to your Halloween decorations. You can turn leaves into little magnetic ghosts!
- Fall leaves
- White paint
- Black paint
- Paint brushes
- Small neodymium magnets for crafts
- Old newspaper
- First, gather some fallen leaves from trees. You can find a variety of shapes and sizes of leaves to use for this project.
- Next, spread out the old newspaper. The newspaper is just to make sure you don’t get paint on any important surfaces.
- Take your leaf collection and spread them on the newspaper.
- Using your paint supplies, paint the leaves white.
- When the white paint is dry, use the black paint to make the ghost faces. Usually, ghost faces are two small holes for eyes and one for the mouth but feel free to get creative!
- After you’re done painting your ghosts, use the glue to attach the neodymium magnets to the back of the leaves.
When you’re done, you will have a whole fleet of ghost leaves to haunt your kitchen from your refrigerator! Neodymium magnets are great tools for creating innovative fall craft projects. Do you have any fall DIYs that you use magnets for? Let us know in the comments!
