Spooktacular Magnets

Magnets are always fun to make any time of year. I’ve made a couple for Halloween.

The magnets were made using the free project download found here offered by Kreinik.

Kreinik’s glow-in-the dark embroidery floss makes these magnets a bit extra special at night when you turn out the lights. We took them outside last night to try to capture their glow. How fun to walk in the kitchen at night to get a drink and be greeted by Frankenstein or a witch glowing on the fridge.



It occurred to me you can also make magnets for other holidays or themes by emulating the process in Kreinik’s Spooktacular Magnets project and using small cross-stitch patterns found in such books as this one I have in my collection: Better Homes and Gardens 2001 Cross Stitch Designs: The Essential Reference Book (Better Homes & Gardens Crafts)

So cute, I bet they're even more amazing when they're glowing. I've got glow-in-the-dark ghost pillowcases - kind of gives me a shock in the middle of the night, but fun!

So cute June! I never heard of glow in the dark embroidery floss. Now you don't need a night light to show you the way

Too cute! I have some glow in the dark rickrack and put it on one of my reusable shopping bags. Adds a special extra to the idea of a midnight madness sale ;)
