So, this week we have three easy projects that would make great gifts! I don't know about you, but it seems like many of our friends are buying a home, getting married or having a baby. These are cute, inexpensive and fun things you could make for just about anything you need a small gift for. You don't have to be made of money to send something thoughtful!
Here is the first of three - Animal magnets, which I'm sure you've seen on Pinterest (or fun sites like FredFlare.com). If you haven't, this is a great idea that we came up with! Just kidding, I can't steal the credit. Anyway, onto the instructions.
On Saturday we went to a couple craft sales and antique markets, and while we were exploring we can across these little guys. The four of them cost us $2, but you could also find some at any toy or dollar store. Once you have the plastic animals, all you need is a pocket knife, small circle magnets and super glue.
The instructions are simple, first, cut the animals in half (as cruel as it may seem).
Then, glue the magnets onto the flat back part of each animal half. We recommend super glue, because hot glue won't hold as well.
And there you have it! A fun addition to any fridge and what could be a fun housewarming gift. Our roommates are really enjoying these. We also had some fun while we were making them...
Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for more mini-projects later this week.
