30 Days For 30 Dollars - Day 24 - Magnets From Items Around the House Plus A Bonus Project


Wondering what 30 Days for 30 Dollars is?? Read all about it here.


Found Object Magnets


My project today starts with plain magnet blanks found at the craft store for $1.30:



Then I scoured the house for cute items to glue onto them:


attached with hot glue - buttons, broken jewelry, a sea shell, a tiny pine cone, and a glass pebble - really any objects you can find will work
Total cost: $1.30
