WHAT YOU NEED:
- Bowl, Saucer or Dish
- Super Strong Magnets
- E-6000 Glue
STEP 1: GATHER SUPPLIES
You want to find a dish, bowl or saucer with a ridge on the bottom. These can be purchased inexpensively at flea markets, yard sales and thrift stores or search your cupboards for a dish you don't use.
To make magnet pin dishes you need to purchase super strong magnets. The magnets have to also be thin so it does not extend above the dish ridge. Neodymium Magnets are ideal for this purpose.
Another essential item is a good adhesive that dries clear. I like E-6000 Glue for this purpose.
STEP 2: PREPARING DISH
Make sure the dish is clean, so wash and dry it thoroughly.
STEP 3: ATTACH MAGNETS
To the bottom of the dish, apply a small dab of E-6000 glue and place the magnet into the glue. Hold the magnet in the glue a few seconds to secure it and so it does not move. Two or three magnets should be sufficient for this project. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly for 24 hours.
The magnetic pin dish is complete! So easy! So useful! Make some and give as gifts!
This dish also works great in the bedroom, office and workshop to hold bobby pins, earrings, safety pins, paper clips, etc.
