Mod Podge Rocks DIY Magnets

Mod Podge Rocks DIY Magnets

One of my very favorite bloggers is Amy from Mod Podge Rocks.  And this project is totally an homage of sorts to Miss Amy since it uses both Mod Podge and rocks!

In trying to find a project that was kind of easy and kind of quick, these rocks came together really easily. And while at first I thought they were a bit too easy, it turns out this is something that kids freak out for and love to do.

I seriously had NO clue that the two little boys hanging around would see me sticking feathers onto rocks and be desperate to make their own. But luckily I had tons of kid-like stickers on hand just perfect for their own little feather rock magnets. A good time was had by all. Or should I say, a rockin’ good time. So punny…

For this project you will need:

  • Rocks
  • Mod Podge
  • Brush, sponge or applicator of some sort
  • Stickers
  • Magnets
  • Super strong glue (like E-6000)

Mod Podge Rocks DIY MagnetsLook for rocks on walks or in gardens, wherever you might have to grab a couple. If you’re not an outdoor type, you can purchase rocks at craft stores, and I believe even at the dollar store.

Look for stickers that are totally cut out with no white edges OR printed on clear material so that the edges aren’t so obvious.

Smack your sticker on as you please and make sure that the edges are fully touching.

Go over with a coat of Mod Podge to keep the sticker from peeling up and to keep little ones from easily peeling the sticker back off. Allow to fully dry.

Use your super strong glue to attach magnets to the back side. I used button magnets but I wished I had used some of those tiny, silver super strong magnets.

If a rock is particularly large, it just might need an extra magnet. Again, the super strong magnets would have been so much better!

That’s seriously all there is to that!

And while the boys liked bowties and space invaders, I was more inclined to cover my rocks with ombre feathers!

When looking for rocks, look for ones with smooth and fairly flat sides for the best results.

And remember that rocks are heavy and could damage tile and whatnot if they smack into the floor very hard, so place out of reach of kids OR forgo the magnets and place your pretty new rocks in a little basket instead!
