If you're like me you have a ton of currency left over from your last trip. If not, maybe you have a really boss coin collection that you've been wanting to show off. Keeping them locked in a box or sitting in a drawer won't do them justice. Here is a VERY easy DIY magnet project I found on Pinterest. It takes less than five minutes and half as many supplies.
If you want to learn how I made these ridiculously easy and very chic magnets...just keep scrolling, scrolling, scrolling.
What you will need:
- Coins (of your choosing)
- Magnetic buttons - Found in the craft aisle of Walmart or basically any craft store.
- Craft glue *optional*
Find small round magnets that are approximately the size of your coins or smaller. These magnets can have an adhesive back on them already (like the ones below) or you can glue the magnets to the back of your coins. Then choose the coins you would like to turn into magnets.
Attach magnets to one side of the coin in the center. For mine I did one on the back of a coin and one on the front of a coin, as I had two of each.
That's it! Find the perfect place to show off your new awesome magnets!
