homemade holiday: craft #1

i have been scouring the web for fun craft projects for our homemade holiday this year!

i have come across some wonderful ideas and will post one every few days.

one that i am really excited about trying is
'marble magnets' which i found over at not martha

the instructions are very easy to follow and lots of pictures to guide you.

we are going to try this over the weekend, so i will let you know how they turn out.

aren't they the cutest? and you can get very creative with what you put behind the glass!

i have already torn out several pages from my favorite magazines in preparation

get crafty people!

They look so cute! You have to post pics of your result so the rest of us can decide if they're worth making... lol :D

I LOVE these. My mom got me some for Christmas last year made by a local lady and my good friend and her sons made some for me too! LOVE!!
Can't wait to see how yours turn out!

p.s. thank you SO much for your comment. It was nice to hear a mom/teacher's POV. I'm sure I will be taking you up on your offer and keep your email close by!

so cute--are they fridge magnets?
you know when you and angie were little I used to do all kinds of crafty things--so glad you are doing that too. love you mom

I used the bigger ones -- like in the silk plant department and put silly questions under them. Then you can spread them out on a pretty table for cute conversation starters. Try the "If" books for question ideas. I wish I had thought far enough to market them. I did lend them to a few friends around holiday time.
