Homemade Mini Canvas Magnets
Posted by Lori:
I probably should have waited to post this until AFTER I've given them as my homemade gifts for my husband's side of the family. That would have been the best thing, but I was so excited to share them with you, I just decided to go ahead and do it!
I'm excited about them because I think that many of you will come up with all kinds of ways to use this same idea. Maybe you have already done something like this yourself. It would make a neat gift for anyone and can be personalized in any way.
This idea came to me while in Hobby Lobby. I walked up and down aisles, looking for neat things that would be good for homemade gifts. My sister had suggested decoupaging on ceramic tiles for coasters. I liked that idea, but wasn't sure I wanted it to be coasters. That's when I spotted these mini canvases. They come in a packed of two and are about a 2.5 inch square. The day I got them they were 30% off, which was even better.
Poke a small hole through the canvas from front to back. Insert brad into flowers as desired and attach to canvas, spreading apart ends of brads as able. If the hole is really close to an edge or corner, just spread the ends to one open side.
