We go to the zoo almost every week since our little boy enjoys there a lot. Having a year card is also another reason 🙂 Everytime when we went there; I looked for a nice magnet for our magnet collection but couldn’t find a nice one. So I decided to do my own DIY Zoo Magnet.
I bought those cute little animals at the zoo, they were called ‘luck bringer’
For the magnet I used my favourite craft material: fimo air dough
Then I cut the dough in the size of the name of the zoo. I wrote the name with cookie letter stamps.
I let the dough dry for approx. 5 days. (since it was thick, I wait more)
Then I painted the letters with different acrylic colours.
I glued animals on it with super glue. Not only the dough and the animals are not so light to carry, but also it was not flat, so I needed really strong magnets. They were also glued with super glue.
I replace it on our refrigerator, where our magnet collection stands.
