You know, sometimes when I do a project, I have to give myself a pep talk. As in, "no this craft will not be as stupid as it sounds," kinda talk.
When I thought, "mousetraps, magnets, awesome," I actually had to nudge myself into doing this. I mean, I saw something like this about three years ago on Pinterest, you know, when Pinterest was still by invitation only, and thought to myself, "huh, mouse traps huh?"
Then as the thought sunk in, it really made sense to make them. I love magnets, I love strange and oddball crafts, WHY NOT!
Paired with my two other favorite things in the crafting world, washi tape and Mod Podge Melts, I really could NOT go wrong.
This was my first time using the colored Mod Podge Melts. When I played with them before to make my wine glass charms, I used the clear melts and I had to paint them, but with the colored melts, I didn't have to do that!
I painted the mouse traps first. Then, while I was waiting for the little charms to cool, I wrapped the mousetraps with washi tape and I hot glued some super strong magnets to the backs.
When the paint was dry and the melts were cooled, I hot glued them together!
And aren't you loving the marbled look? Wanna know how I did that? I put in a 1/3 of an orange melt into my hot glue gun, and when I needed to reload the melts, I added a clear melt. It helped clear out the orange color from my hot glue gun anyway!
And so there you go, some super fun, quirky magnets that will hold so much stuff because they are built to well, uh, take care of rodents.
