I love flowers. And I spend a lot of time in the kitchen- where fridge magnets add a fun (and functional) pop of color to my kitchen. Combine them both, and I think I found a perfect craft! Not to mention, I am a sucker for anything in miniature. This mini bouquet DIY magnet will surely add some cheer to a loved ones kitchen.

Using a craft punch, create several flowers. You will need two punched shapes per flower.
Using hot glue, adhere the punched flower shapes to the cloth wrapped floral wire, sandwiching the flower shapes, with the wire in the middle.
Continue to adhere the flowers to the wire.
The ends of your flower stems will be uneven. Trim the bundle using wire cutters.
Lay the paper under your bouquet, with the corner in the center.
Bend the bottom section upwards.
Adhere the leaves to the flowers in your bouquet where there are empty spots.
Add a super heavy duty magnet to the back of your finished mini bouquet.
I think this DIY magnet would make an adorable Mother’s Day gift! It could also be gifted to anyone that needs some added cheer. How about sending it to someone as a get well or congratulations wish?
