There have been a few perks to living in Tucson that have nothing to do with the warm weather. One of those perks happens to be the World Gem Show! Apparently, it’s a super big deal and jewelers and dealers travel from all over and come into my town and buy and trade. And luckily, gems, geodes, and agate are having a moment so this was a dream for me to check out with a friend a few weeks ago. So we went, we perused, we ate, we came home, and then we fawned over the spoils. I collected quite a few loose gems & rocks and thought they were perfect to make some DIY gem magnets! They take SECONDS to make. I’m not joking. This isn’t even a DIY project as much as it is a DIY appetizer.
Materials needed to make your own DIY gem magnets
- assorted mini gems (found in Tucson or at your local craft store)
- stick-on magnets
- hot glue gun (optional)
This doesn’t even scratch the surface with the amount of goods I returned from the gem show with. Tucson, I like you!
And there you have it! This is quite possibly the easiest, fastest, and gemmiest DIY project we’ve shared! If you’re lacking in the gem collection department, I can help with that. 😉
