Felt Flower Decorated Clothe pin Magnet

On the previous post, I mentioned about clothe pin magnet I made for my kids at school. I am going to show you how to make them. This is a different version of the magnet. I mean, the magnet I am going to make here has different embellishment. It is a felt flower decorated clothe pin magnet. This is another easy project to make.

What you need are :
a clothe pin
acrylic paint (I used dark brown)
a magnet
a felt flower embellishment plus felt leaves
glue gun

Instruction :
Color the clothe pin with the acrylic paint. Let it dry, put a side.
Attach the magnet at the back of the clothe pin, then trim off the excess (usually the magnet is wider than the clothe pin, mine is).
Using the glue gun, attach the felt flower on the right side of the clothe pin
The magnet is ready! Didn't I tell you that this is an easy one???

This magnet has a double function, it can be used a decoration  and a message holder .

Simple tags

I wanted to give something to my kids at school for the Halloween. I was thinking to make them a felt owl decorated clothe pin magnet to each of them. Last weekend I pushed myself to finish them all. They came up so cute. I clipped the magnet onto a tag.
It was so easy to make the tags. It was just a piece of orange cardstock that I cut into several smaller pieces, then I decorated them with handmade fall trees and put stickers of their initials on the center. I used paper punch from stampin'up to cut out the leaves of the trees. Here are the tags.
