DIY FRUIT MAGNETS

My DIY Space Invader Magnets inspired my to make some other magnets as well.

Mostly, because I bought sparkly glue gun sticks and wanted to test them.

This time, I’ve made glittery, fruit magnets!

 Fruit Magnets

Honestly, I can say the sparkly ones were a TOTAL PAIN, but okay to look at. They aren’t 100% clear, which was a bit of a bummer. They do, however, junk up your glue gun, so luckily I bought a separate one for this projects ( I was hoping to use the glittery ones again, but I’m not so sure after the project).

I probably wouldn’t use these much again (it took several sticks for each magnet! Even using clear ones for the bluk of the inside), but that could also be the new hot glue gun I got. Maybe it smaller or something? I got a new one so the glitter wouldn’t get stuck in my other ones.

In any case, this is just like the Space Invader magnets – you just use a fruit mold instead!

First, grab your goods.
Mold, glitter glue sticks, glue guns, magnets.

 What you need

Then, use the special glue sticks to fill the bottom of your mold. You may need to dip your finger in water, and use it to smooth the glue throughout the mold for the base layer, so you get all the details in the side. If you’re using multiple colors, you may need to take turns (as shown below). For instance, fill all the parts that need green first, rather than taking the stick out, switching colors, which ends up mixing, etc.

After that, fill with clear glue gun sticks (so you don’t waste the more expensive ones).

 Fill the mold

Then, add a magnet, just like last time.

I used big magnets for these, and they didn’t work as well as the tiny, strong ones from the Space Invader ones.

Oh well. They’re still pretty cute!
Now you know to use the tiny ones from HERE instead.

 Finished Products

There you go!
