Glass Photo Magnets

These easy photo magnets are so simple that even a kid can make them! Give these glass magnets as gifts, use them as party favors, or keep the kids busy during summer break. Skills Required: Beginner. If you can cut out paper with scissors, you can make these photo magnets! The time required to make these is minimal, and you can make a lot of these picture magnets at once. You don’t have to worry about any wrinkles in this project. Are you ready, my friends, to make the easiest craft project you’ve ever made in your life? Then you’re ready for these DIY picture magnets! It took me forever to finally try making glass magnets like these, and I thought it would be the perfect time to try while looking for a quick craft idea.

You can use photos to personalize your glass magnets, however, I do recommend making laserjet copies of the real photos so you don’t get any bleed. Photos are cute for gifts or wedding favors. But you don’t *have* to use photos; you can use anything. The idea is to pick a scrap of something (the magnets will end up being about 1″ or so) that has meaning to you or to the recipient.
