Dictionary Magnets with Crafty Words


  • Round flat glass marbles can be found in the floral department, aka vase filler
  • Dictionary
  • Americana Decou-page I used matte finish
  • Scissors
  • Pen
  • 3/4- inch round magnets


  • Go through the dictionary and find a word you would like to use. Place your glass marble over the top of the word and trace it with a pen.
  • Cut the circle out, but cut inside the circle by about 1/8-inch. You want the paper to be small enough to fit on the back without any paper overlapping or sticking out the sides.
  • Use a sponge applicator to add a thin layer of decoupage medium to the front side of the paper (the side with your word).
  • Place the marble on top of the paper and press it down. You will have a short window of time where you can reposition the paper, so get it where you want it, then turn the marble upside down. Paint a thin layer of decoupage medium onto the back. Let that dry for a couple of minutes.
  • Add a "dollop" of decoupage medium to the back of your magnet. Place the magnet on the back of the marble and press it in place. Let it dry for about thirty minutes and you can hang it!


If you have a circle punch that will work for the size of your marble you can certainly use that instead of scissors.
