DIY Glass Gem Magnets


Here’s a super easy project that makes a great last minute gift, brought to you by the brain behind Tristan & Company!

Nothing says “I have absolutely no idea what to get you” like the gift of magnets.  You know?  But if they’re homemade it’s somehow legit.



These clear glass gems can be found at your local dollar or craft store. They’re usually advertised as vase fillers. Use your favorite patterned paper, print your own designs, or I bet you could even use fabric in the same way.


Using the proper glue and clamping tools makes everything easier, and will guarantee success.

So if you find yourself with an abundance of glass gems and magnets, now you know what to make! Click over to Tristan & Company for the full how-to.
