I guess this is sort of becoming a “thing.” First, I made this, then there were these- and now, I’m making DIY crayon magnets. Once you’re done with me, I’ll have your entire home decked out in oversized office supplies!
These wooden crayons are such a cute way to dress up a plain magnetic board. Whether you’re a kiddo or a grown up, these can add a great bit of color to your office, kitchen or classroom. Ready to make some DIY crayon magnets? Let’s do it!
- DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint
- Aleene’s Tacky Glue
- Assorted cardstock to match the colors of paint used
- Black Cardstock cut into thin strips
- Small circle magnets
- Unfinished Wood Craft Dowels, 3/4″ Inch – cut down to 5″ lengths
- Fiskars Amplify Scissors (great for cutting heavy-duty materials)
- Paper Mache Cones (4″x2″)
- Foam Brushes
Paint the “crayon” as shown…you only need to paint the top and bottom, since the center will be covered with cardstock.
Wrap the cardstock around the center, then add the black strips as an accent.
Adhere the magnet to the back of your wood crayon and you’ve created the cutest magnet ever!
