ceramic tiles, markers, magnets and a hot glue gun
become the most adorable and inexpensive handmade christmas gift.
i bought these small ceramic tiles at our local habitat for humanity restore for 10 cents each. we purchased an assorted pack of fine tip, permanent markers (similar to sharpies , but we used less expensive bic markers) with a 40% off office depot coupon for less than $6. and the magnets were purchased several months ago at the craft warehouse ($1.79 for 6) and were hanging out in our creative cupboard waiting for the perfect project.
this project is simple - let your kiddos draw adorable pictures on the tiles, hot glue a magnet to the back, and you have a sweet handmade gift ready to give! they are perfect for teachers, grandparents, aunts, uncles...
we wrote the artist's name and year on each tile. then i used glue dots to secure each set of four magnets to a decorated piece of recycled cardboard then placed them into a cellophane bag tie closed with pretty ribbon. super cute and super easy - you can make a little magnet set for everyone you know in one fun evening!
