Marble Magnets

Create fun little magnets in which you can put keepsake photos.

Marble Magnets

What you need

Clear marbles (the ones with one flat side, can be found at any craft store)
Old magazines or stickers
Clear Silicone or PVA (white)craft glue or modge podge.


Cut a piece of cardboard or paper backing the size of your marble. Then glue your image onto the cardboard.

Then glue the marble to the top side of the picture so that you can still see the picture. Let it dry.

When the glue dries you will be able to see the picture through the marble.

Finally, glue magnets onto the back.



  1. I personalized them by typing out co-workers names, glued on and gave them to them. Also used different pictures for different seasons!

  2. I was looking for a fun project for Senior citizens I visit. This will be marvelous! I think I will get the pictures from greeting cards!

    Thank you!
