Polymer Clay Pumpkin Magnets

By:

These Polymer Clay Pumpkin Magnets from Becky Meverden are a great way to get in the mood for Halloween. They make festive accents for your refrigerator or other metal surfaces. The purple polka dots add a pop of color to these sweet pumpkins. Best of all, unlike some other Halloween crafts, they're not even a tiny bit creepy. Your little goblins can help you put together these polymer clay crafts. You can turn these precious pumpkins into jewelry charms as well.
