magnetism . . .

Magnets are up year round on all of our fridges, but often they are devoid of any decorative value. This is an easy project to add some fun to your kitchen.

I started with some colorful straws,

and used 4 for each magnet.

 Cut them into descending lengths.

Shred one end

on each of them.

Begin with the longest length and insert longest to shortest.  

You can make a couple slices in the ends so they will easily fit into each other.

I wrapped the end in packing tape before I cut it off,

and lastly, I glued on a magnet.

The finished product looks so cute on the fridge.

Very cute Heather. I think if you made a red, a white, and a blue one they would look like fireworks.
