make something monday :: beetle magnets

Once in awhile you just need a little brainless DIY to make you giggle. Today I am sharing these silly beetle magnets that did just that for me.

A little bag of plastic bugs + spray paint + small magnets + glue = bright colored beetles to make you smile!

Josie and Zeb have a fun vintage metal lamp in their room that was my Grandmothers. I thought it would be a cute detail to add the little critters to the lamp to match the beetle print I shared HERE...but trust me these guys have been known to wander off and find themselves stuck all over the house.

I really wanted to do some in florescent pink and orange but stuck to the paint colors we had in our garage...wouldn't those be fun? maybe I will do some more because you really can't have enough bright colored beetles around right? Well the plastic kind anyway. :)

Hope you guys have a fun week! What have you made lately that was silly simple? Happy Monday friends!


  1. Great idea! I love the use of color to make them a little more whimsical and modern and a little less icky buggy (but with a family full of boys you probably think bugs are no big thing by now!) So glad to hear you sounding so happy, friend :)

  2. o this is just so fun! haha


  3. These are so fun! I know my little guy would love them too. Great idea - simple is always best, in my opinion! :)

  4. This is such a fun, simple idea. I wanted to do something creative in my little boy's room-- and something like this would be right up his alley. I can already see him taking them off and putting them back on each day : )

  5. oooh this is so cute and looks easy peasy. i saw some of these rubber animals at hobby lobby the other day. it's game time.
