I’m not much of an orange or traditional fall decoration girl. But I do love fall leaves and when I found orange modeling clay in my craft cabinet couldn’t pass up the chance to make DIY fall magnets. As expected, they are pretty simple to make and your family and/or friends would love them as gifts. Either way, they are putting me in the fall spirit.
DIY Fall Magnets You’ll Love!

Here’s what you’ll need for DIY Clay magnets:
- Modeling Clay – Choose 3 or 4 of your favorite colors
- Small round magnets
- Leaf cookie cutter
- Glue Gun
I chose orange, yellow, and brown for my leaves but change it up. Do what you think is pretty!
How to Make DIY Fall Magnets:
1.) Roll out the clay
2.) Cut out as you would if you were making cookies
3.) Let air dry until completely dried through. These do take a few days to try but you’ll be able to tell they’re done when they no longer have a sheen. I love the specific brand of modeling clay I chose because when it dries it’s similar to foam which makes them nice and light.
4.) Hot glue magnets on the back.
Let them sit for a day or overnight before using. Now enjoy!
