I was browsing the shelves at Michaels recently and found these amazing wood disks in various sizes. I almost pooped my pants right there – I LOVE unfinished wood projects! I think it’s because I have a forestry degree, or maybe just because I like it simple, but I think paint and Mod Podge look great on a plain wood surface. I bought several sizes of these disks, but the smallest ones seemed conducive to making magnets. These would make perfect Christmas decor or you could give them as gifts. You can paint them – or decoupage them – so many possibilities. Here’s how I made these magnets.
Gather These Supplies
- Unfinished wood disks – they come in a pack of four
- Acrylic paint – colors of your choice (red, green, white, etc)
- Martha Stewart Crafts adhesive stencils – Christmas themed
- Foam spouncers
- Hot glue gun and hot glue
Use your spouncers to paint the stencils. The key to getting clean lines is to use a little bit of paint at a time and keep going over and over the area. If you go crazy, the stencils will probably bleed. Once you have finished filling in your stencils, peel them off (while the paint is wet) and let the paint dry.
If you are wondering how I did two colors, I did a portion of the stencil in one color, peeled off the stencil and let the paint dry. Then I came back and did the other color later.
