Sparkling Marble Magnets

We have talked about how much I love these Dollar Store marbles.

They come in different sizes, they come in assorted colors.

And, they make fabulous crafts.

Today I am sharing a very inexpensive project of Sparkling Marble Magnets using the marbles, some leftover nail polish and magnets. I think this is a fabulous project for tweens/teens to make custom magnets for their rooms!

You can use that bottle of glitter polish that is almost used up, it’s too glumpy to go on your nails, and you spent $5 on it, so you want to get your money’s worth from it.

Both my girls have dry erase boards in their bedrooms, they make a great place to leave a note, or a date, or just a smiley face to let them know they were on my mind during the day.

You can get the dry erase boards for $5-$10 at most stores. Walmart, K-Mart, and Office Supply stores all have them. As a bonus, they are usually magnetic as well as dry erase.

They are a perfect place to display these pretty magnets, and they can be customized to match your room too!

Gather your supplies.

Nail polish, we have plenty of this in our nail polish basket.

Clear marbles from the dollar store. Any size will work!

Magnets: I found some on Amazon, but you can find them in a craft store as well.

You also need a hot glue gun.

Flip your marble over, you need to paint the flat side.

Begin laying on the nail polish.

After the first coat, lay it on pretty thick, once it dries that clumping look doesn’t matter much.

Polish too thick? Add a couple of drops of nail polish remover and shake the polish well for about a minute. It will thin it out again.

Allow the polish to dry overnight. I also recommend doing this in a well ventilated room or outside if possible.

Use a hot glue gun and add a dollop of glue.

Then immediately press a magnet into the hot glue and center it. Allow it to cool and you are ready to use the magnets.
