Super Thursday Idea

I can't really call it Super Saturday because its held on a Thursday in our ward. This was a craft that I was in charge of. I thought it would be fun to share with you. These are flower magnets and they are super easy!

Your local Michael's will have the flowers, wire, discs, magnets, scrapbook flowers and metal. If you are doing a lot, I think its best to spray paint the flowers. Once painted you can then decorate. I did a red scrapbook flower on one. This was easy, all I did was glue a magnet on back and a flower on the front. The daisy flower I painted polka dots in a tan color. I also painted the disc a tan color to match. Then I took the wire and twisted it to look like another flower. All you do now is attach the pieces. Metal word to the disc, disc to the metal wire, wire to the wood flower and the wood flower to the magnet. Now you'll have two cute magnets to keep or give away!

I recognized the red flower, but the wire one is adorable. I might just have to try that. Fun idea, super-crafter!
