Make this: Love Rock Magnets

February 2, 2012

Here’s a cute and easy DIY for your Valentine. With just a little glitter, paint and a dab of glue, these plain rocks turn into a sparkly, fun and functional gift that is worthy of your main squeeze.


I found rocks in my own backyard but you can purchase them from a craft or garden store. You want to make sure they aren’t too big or heavy and generally, the flatter more oval-shaped ones work best. Using your favorite acrylic gloss paint color, paint a few rocks and leave a few au natural for a nice balance. Take a fine point glue pen and draw hearts, arrows, or even your initials and dust with fine grade glitter (Martha Stewart has a wonderful selection of colors, shapes and sizes). Take a strong magnet (remember, these are rocks and you don’t want them to slide down the fridge) and hot glue it to the backside of the rock. Place your rocks in a cute jewelry style cardboard box and voila! A thoughtful, handmade gift that’s easy and inexpensive. Enjoy!
