Argh Summer (which has turned very wet and cold this week) has brought out my obsession of daisies again! I took down my wall of daisies a couple of months ago so I now have 50 or so of these little flowers laying around just waiting for fun adorable crafts to happen with them 😀

So the first thing I did with them was make some fridge magnets!

You need:

  • Fake flowers
  • Hot glue
  • Felt
  • Magnet strips
These daisies came on a big long chain which I dismantled, you can generally pull apart any cheap fake flowers and get something like this.

Because I want them to sit flat I snipped off the pointy part which attached to the stem.

Then I cut some little squares of magnet strips. The base of the flower is curved so I used felt to create a new base for the magnet to sit on.

Cut a circle of felt and leaving a little room in the middle, hot glue two of the sides like this.

Glue down the other two sides when the first ones are dry. Don’t pull it tight otherwise it won’t form a flat base.

Press down the middle bubble of felt with your finger and it should form a little flat square of felt.

Bam! You have a flat area to stick your magnet to… so glue it down ^_^

Now make about 50 more and you’ve got an awesome fridge waiting to happen 😀

Any suggestions for other crafts using these? I’m going to make some hair pins/velcro/alice bands with them 😀 If it’s going to be stupidly hot and Summery I’m going to beat the weather at it’s own game >:D
