This is a 2 part project. I made a magnet and cookie/candy party favor.

Approximate Time: varied

Supplies:

Instructions:

I made 2 kinds of magnets. The first is a painted design: jack-o-lantern and the second a photo design leaf pattern.

Jack-O-Lantern

  1. Clean glass marble with alcohol.
  2. Paint facial features, eyes, nose, and mouth of jack-o-lantern in black.
  3. When dry, paint accent lines in a dark orange.
  4. When that's dry, paint the entire back with 2 coats in a lighter shade of orange.
  5. When dry, use hot glue to affix leaf and magnet.

Photo Design Leaf Pattern

  1. Clean glass marble with alcohol.
  2. Print out picture or use one from a magazine or other source. I used a leaf background and added text for my event. My text was set at 7 points font for the name, Leaf Peep 2011. I used inexpensive photo paper and printed it on the back side so there wasn't too much ink. I printed out individual squares, as many as I needed or as fit on the page.
  3. Wait until the ink is dry.

  4. Apply white glue, and place flat side of marble on top. Let dry overnight. If back of paper is damp, turn over and let that side dry as well.
  5. Cut excess paper off around marble.
  6. Use hot glue to affix faux leaf (optional) and then a small magnet.

Instructions for Cookie/Candy Favor:

I assembled the "acorns" using mini vanilla wafers. They now come in fall colors...yay!
  1. Unwrap Hershey's Kisses.
  2. Adhere to mini vanilla wafer with a small amount of peanut butter.
  3. Adhere a peanut butter morsel to the top with peanut butter. It should resemble an acorn.

I had cello bags on hand that I used for pretzel rods, and they were the perfect size to drop the cookie/candies in. I used a glue dot to stick the magnet on the package of cookie/candies. You could also just used folded up adhesive tape.

It was a very low cost project and I think it is going to be a really cute favor to hand out at my luncheon.
