DIY: Vintage Flower Beads

A while back I received some amazing vintage flower beads from No Snow Supplies. I knew that I wanted to make some magnets out of them so they could be on display all the time. They are way too pretty to be hidden inside my jewellery box. But I had to get my hands on a glue gun (yes, I'm a crafter that doesn't own a glue gun. I plan on changing that sooner than later).

Anyways, after borrowing a friend's glue gun I pulled out some crafts supplies... magnets and pin backs.

It didn't take very long to glue everything together. I think the longest part was figuring out which beads and colours I wanted to put together. I ended up making 4 magnets and 2 pins.

While I had the glue gun out I decided to stick a couple of magnets on the back of LSP that I received recently in the post. Now she gets to hang out on my fridge too!

I still have a lot of flower beads left. I think I might make some magnet sets to put with future gifts.

Check out No Snow Supplies for an amazing selection of vintage beads!

  1. Those look brilliant! I have only recently purchased a glue gun, and also borrowed a staple gun from Fran (who also leant me ear defenders, a high-visibility jacket, and goggles to wear whilst I'm using it because she knows how safety conscious I am :p) xx

  2. Glue guns are essential! Once you own one you will want to glue EVERYTHING trust me :)
