The theme of this year’s decorations, which can be said every year about every holiday’s decorations, is 1.) simple and 2.) doesn’t take up too much space. These magnets fit the bill. Plus, our refrigerator is a happy place to play and these guys will add to the fun.
– smooth rocks
– paint markers
– strong adhesive
– clear coat, optional
Choose the smaller, flatter rocks. If they are too big and heavy, they won’t stay put. Paint them up into Halloween creatures. Black cats, pumpkins and ghosts are Halloween-y to us. Use the rocks’ character. The ghosts look extra ghost-y due to their shape.
The black cats are my favorite.
I used a little 3-D paint for the stem on our happy jack-o-lanterns.
I did attempt Frankenstein but couldn’t get the face right. :(
Top it with a clear coat if you wish. It will make the paint last longer. Especially if they will be used as characters in various Halloween dramas. Use a strong adhesive to connect the magnet to the backside.
Then stick ’em up.
