Make it Girl-DIY!

Geometric Clay Magnets


Who knew clay could be so fun? Every since I decided to buy some clay and make this DIY Jewelry tray, I have been itching to use it again.

It hit my one day while staring at my fridge trying to decide what to make for dinner. Magnets! I could totally make some cute magnets. So a DIY was born. Geometric Clay Magnets.

  • Polymer Clay
  • A craft knife
  • Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Magnetic Sticky Stripes
  • Super Glue (maybe)

After I made a few, I stuck them in the oven at 275 degrees for 30 minutes.

Wait for them to cool before you start painting.

I wanted them to have a unique look, so when I did start painting, I choose different sides to keep in the shape of the geometric idea.
