DIY Magnetic Flower Clips

Only one month into my summer vacation and I am already getting excited for school to resume in the fall. My newest addition to the classroom is an adorable set of DIY magnetic flower clips. They were cheap and easy to create and these colorful magnets make such a fun statement in my classroom.

Magnetic Flower Clips: Step 1

To begin, remove the stem from an artificial flower. Turn the flower upside down and apply a generous dollop of hot glue to the plastic area where the stem used to be. Set the flower into the round head of the magnet man (do this quickly while the glue is still hot and before it sets).

Next, apply a small amount of hot glue onto the front of the magnet man’s legs and gently push the bottom layer of petals onto the glue (this helps to disguise the legs).Then you’re done! It’s SO easy!

I love how fun and cheerful the finished clips look on my classroom whiteboard.

Hi, I'm Maria.

I’m a former kindergarten teacher turned work-from-home mom. I still love sharing ideas and resources to make teaching easier, so you can focus on what really matters in the classroom. When I’m not working on the blog, you’ll find me chasing kids around the house with a cold cup of coffee in my hand (some things never change even once you’re out of the classroom!)
