You can replace the epoxy with super glue, but I prefer the epoxy for its strength. Since the other supplies are usually sold in bulk, you can make dozens of magnets in a small amount of time. These make great gifts, but you'll want to keep a few for yourself!

Total Time: 30 minutes (not including drying times)

Yield: 20+

Supplies:

  • 1 bag glass mosaic "globes" ($4)
  • 1 tube epoxy ($4)
  • 1 bottle glitter nail polish ($2)
  • 1 bottle solid color nail polish ($2)
  • 1 package magnets ($3)
Supplies for making magnets.
 

Steps:

  1. Paint the back of a glass globe with 2 to 3 coats of glittery nail polish, depending on how much glitter you want.
  2. Applying glitter polish.
     
  3. Paint over the glitter nail polish with 3 coats of solid colored nail polish. Let the nail polish completely harden.
  4. Applying solid color polish.
