I am sharing with you today a great gift idea made with some amazing products… 

I love Mod Podge!

Let me show you our Jar Lid’s Magnets.


These would make a perfect gift for family members that are far away.

I believe any grandma would love this gift!


Let me show you how I made them. So easy!



Gloss Mod Podge

Dimensional Magic Mod Podge

Images or pictures


1 Box of Lids.

Scissors or Circle Puncher




I printed my pictures on white card stock.

The size of your pictures will depend on the size of lids you are going to use.

I got the wide mouth lid size for my magnets.


I used a 3′’ circle punch to trim my photos. It is the perfect size for this project.

I centered the image where I wanted it and then I punched it.


Now we are ready to have some Mod Podge fun!

Paint the beige inside part of the lid with the Gloss Mod Podge.

The red part of the lid will become the magnet’s frame.



Right away place your image on top of the lid and smooth out any bubbles using your fingers.

Add another coat of Gloss Mod Podge on top of the picture and let it dry.

Don’t worry, the Mod Podge will dry clear.


The last step is to apply a layer of Dimensional Magic on top of the picture.

I would advice to do this on a flat even surface so it sits and dries flat.

It will look weird while wet but after it dries it will give your magnets a

beautiful smooth dimensional glossy finish that you’ll love.

This is my favorite part!


Let them dry overnight or for a full 24 hours before you add the magnets to the back of the lids.


You’ll love them!



Here is one of them on my fridge!


Our magnets are ready for Christmas.

They are going to go all the way to Europe for my mama’s fridge!


I hope this post inspires you to play with some Mod Podge  products

    Love this idea. Couple tips that may be helpful to first-timers. The streaks you see on the photos after applying the first layer of mod podge will still be visible even though they will be clear so make every effort to apply the coat evenly. The dimensional magic will harden and make the edges of the picture curl up and become brittle and easy to break unless you seal the edges down around the gentle dome in the center of the lid when you adhere it to the lid. This will also add to the 3D effect.

    i wonder how else to do this, the lid edges are so sharp!

      These are the lids that you purchase at the stores for canning. You can find them at Wall-Mart, They come in a box of 12 or 24 for under $2.00. They are not sharp at all.
