Peg Magnets

So these are the sweet little things I was spending my time doing yesterday - seriously, they took all of 10 minutes to do 2, and I really like them. Possibly because I LOVE Greenhouse Gala papers - they are just so so pretty and make me happy inside - and there's Poofy Flowers which are another love of mine - and I'm in desperate need of some fridge magnets so, I am very happy! hehehehhe






Do you like them??? I do! They have grown on me though - at first I wasn't sure, and I added the leaves to make sure they definitely were flowers and not just weird growths on a peg! hehehehe

I glued the paper onto the peg, then sanded the edges. I added paper to the inside of the back peg as well so from the top you don't see any ugly peg? Then I used a hot glue gun to glue on the magnet and the flower and the leaves, so hopefully these babies should withstand some normal family behaviour! :)

I am thinking these are going to become my go-to gift, sweet, simple yet useful. So don't be surprised if some of you get these for Christmas!!! :) I'm very excited to give these a go in different colours too - and maybe with something other than poofy flowers...

Have a great day!

I LOVE this idea Adele. Sorry but I am definately going to have to steal it!! And I just remembered seeing a giant bag of wooden pegs in the Op Shop the other day for $1. I'll have to waddle down and buy them!
