DIY: How to make refrigerator magnets

 We are happy to share Art by Asta blog post ablout DYI refrigerator magnets! You can also visit her SHOP and buy anything you want.

Even if it may sound a bit weird, but when I visit others’ kitchen I always take a look at the refrigerator. Some of them are totally clear, some have few fridge magnets with some notes, photos or kids’ paintings, but most of them have lots of funny souvenir magnets from foreign countries. I also always buying magnets from countries I visit for my Mom. She loves them!
Then I started to travel more and more I realized that people really love small little gifts and souvenirs. That is why I started to sell handmade refrigerator magnets a couple of years ago. People really want to have some funny tiny paintings or phrases on their fridges. Original hand painted fridge magnet is also a great little gift for the family members or friends (I know that many of my customers use them as Christmas stocking gifts. It is never too late or too earlier for Christmas shopping, isn’t it? :)
There are many fun and easy ways to make creative magnets. Almost anything can be turned into a refrigerator magnet with two magic things: a little bit of glue and a magnet. Oh and the third thing - creativity :). This article will show you how to make a few simple magnets from stones and wooden blocks like I do.

For this refrigerator magnet craft project, all you need is:

1. Small, lightweight stone or wooden block that is flat on one side. I used rocks that were found on the beach.

2. A magnet that fits your stone or wooden block. I use round button magnet. Remember - pick the right size as you really don't want to see the magnet from the other side.

3. Very strong glue.

First of all, you need to clean the stone / rock. If your object is very dirty, the glue may not stick to it.

Now it is time to create a design for your fridge magnet. It can be a phrase or a little painting. Let your imagination go! Check what I have created.

When your front part is ready, glue the magnet on the back side. If your object is large, consider gluing two small button magnets to the back: one at the top, and one at the bottom. The final step is to wait until the glue dries.

Then your artwork is ready to get a place on the fridge!

Jewelry, Accessories, Candles, Wax melts by MiLiCrafts

Migle love using nature creations in her handicrafts! So here is her story and Shop ;)
Since I was little girl I loved handicrafts, because my grandmother and grandfather were very handy people. They taught me different techniques of creating beautiful things. My grandmother showed me how to knit, sew, crochet and lots of other different things. My grandfather loves working with wood, so had an opportunity to learn from him. All of their life they learn new things and taught me and others. 

As a child I spend all of my summers at the country side where I learn to love nature and use gifts of it for my handicrafts. I liked playing with wood branches, reed canes and grass stems.
As an adult I searched myself for a long time where I belong, what should I be and what should I work. And one day I decided that I want to develop the knowledge and skills given me by my grandparents and open my handicraft shop on Etsy. From that day I make hand-crafted items filled with love and inspired by nature.

Unique jewellery art by DovileJewellery

It's a pleasure to introduce very unique artist DovileJewellery. Here is her story and SHOP.

Hello lovely people!
My name is Dovile. I am Lithuanian jewellery artist currently living and working in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, United Kingdom.

I have studied jewellery and smithery in Vilnius Academy of Arts (Telsiai, Lithuania), Escola Massana (Barcelona, Spain). 
Past three years I was responsible for running the jewellery studio/workshop in Vilnius, tutored jewellery basics.
I'm actively participating in contemporary jewellery projects and exhibitions.

In the process of working, I approach the different materials with the intention to establish a form of dialogue with it. I am trying to find shapes which have no predictable meaning of jewellery being. Mostly I look through painter‘s and sculpture‘s eye rather than jewellers. At the same time, the leading role in materials takes the metal or wood.
The combination of fragile and monumental materials interacts into the pieces I made. Furthermore, the values which have not depended on cultural or time changes for me are essential in contrast with human fragility, soul‘s aches.

Thank you for visiting!
