Sparkling Marble Magnets

5 Minutes
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!
Please join us at for the full tutorial.
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.
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.
These are so pretty and glittery, you can match them to your decor colors!

    Are the marbles flat or do they stay round

  • Lori Lori on Dec 10, 2016
    Are you polishing just to bottoms, or the whole marble?

      Deb, just paint the bottom, let dry and then hot glue the magnet to the painted marble bottom.
