What You’ll Need for This DIY Christmas Magnets

- Protective Sealer
DIY Christmas Magnets Instructions
Step 1. Draw Faces
First, draw faces onto your wooden circles. Add a small holiday accent to the hair to create a holiday motif.
I went with a candy cane, but feel free to go with whatever you want.
Step 2. Paint the Facial Features
Paint the faces with tone skin craft paint. We added a little bit of white paint to lighten the skin tone.
Paint the eyes and candy cane white, then let it dry. Next, paint the hair black or any color of your choice and let dry after, too.
You can paint the back of the circle black as well but it is not necessary. Paint the lips red, as well as the red stripes on the candy cane. Also, choose a color for her eyes.
Step 3. Outlining the Features
Use a thin permanent marker to outline their features. You can add blush to their cheeks using a red oil pastel stick and an old brush or just using a little bit of red paint.
Step 4. Spray on Clear Protective Sealer
Spray the wooden disks with a clear protective sealer. We used Krylon for this step.
Step 5. Attach Magnets
Finally, mount the magnets behind the painted part of the wooden disks. Magnets should be applied at the back portion of the disk with E6000 glue or a hot glue gun.
Firmly press them for a few seconds ’til they stick together. Then, you’re done!
Aside from using these on your fridge, you can attach these magnets on any metal board around the house!
