My little granddaughters LOVE sparkles. Whenever were doing a craft it has to have sparkles involved. I found this really fun sparkles magnet craft and thought the girls would love it! and they did ! Also great because now we have more magnets to hang all their other beautiful art work on the fridge with. Hope you guys give it a try 🙂
~ Clear flat back ‘marbles’ The glass dome you can find at the craft store or dollar store. Make sure they are clear, if the have an opal or pearl glaze they wont work.
Strong magnets … they have to hold the weight of the glass dome
~ E6000 Glue …. the mother of all glues .. (from Walmart or Micheals)
~ GLITTER!!! I used both the expensive and fabulous Martha Stewart Octagon Glitter (thank you Martha) and semi fine dollar store glitter ..
~A paint brush ..
~Varnish (I used Folkart)
~Little Helpers ( I had all my nieces and nephews help .. it was a blast .. )
Put sparkles in shallow bowls / plates.
Put a dab of glue on the back of your glass domes ( the flat side) and spread a thin layer then dip it in the glitter.
Lay the glass domes sparkles up to dry for about 3 hours.
Once dry put a coat of varnish over the sparkles and allow to dry again for an hour or so.
Then use your glue to glue a magnet onto the back as well, allow to dry and then voila sparkle magnets everywhere!
