What You’ll Need:

  • Oven bake clay (multiple colors, plus white)
  • Clay Roller
  • Circle cookie cutter
  • Parchment Paper
  • Hot glue gun
  • 12mm x 2mm disc magnets

Steps:

  1. Break ½ inch pieces of 2 to 3 colors of clay, along with a piece of the white clay.
  2. Roll all the pieces of clay together, into a “snake” shape. To combine all the pieces, twist them together. This step will create the tie-dye marbled look.
  3. Once you have clay twisted into your desired color pattern, roll into ball and use the clay roller to flatten to about ½ inch thick.
  4. Use a circle cookie cutter (or any circular object) to cut a circle into clay. You could also use other cookie cutters, or objects to cut the clay into other shapes.
  5. Repeat this step for however many magnets you want to make.
  6. Lay a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie tray. Place your clay circles (or other shapes) onto the parchment paper and bake in the oven at 275 degrees for 25 minutes. Let clay completely cool.
  7. Use the hot glue gun to add a pea-sized amount of glue on one side of each piece of baked clay. Wait 15 seconds before adding the magnet onto the glue. Let the glue dry completely for the magnet to set.
  8. Stick your tie-dye, marbled creation on the fridge and enjoy!
