Basically this is the craft for the non-crafty folks. Literally it took me about 1 minute. It feels like cheating to even call it a craft.
I live with a bunch of girls who love traveling to God’s glory. They each came back from doing overseas missions this summer with pocketfuls of foreign coins. When coupled with my coin collection, resulted in coins from 15+ countries!
I wanted to incorporate them into our home in some way that we would see them and be prompted to pray for the countries that we’ve traveled to.
Enter adhesive backed magnets!
I bought these guys at Michaels but you can get them here.
I got my glue gun out because I wasn’t sure if the sticky backs on the magnets would hold the weight of a coin. But even the heaviest coins I had stuck just fine! And some of the coins were even real metal and stuck to the magnets on their own haha!
But really, this “craft” took less than 5 minutes and now we have this sweet collection of prayer-prompting magnets on our fridge. (Which really, is there a better place for a prayer prompt? We definitely look at it at least 3 times each day!)
And lest you be fooled into thinking that because I made this craft, our fridge is super cute and organized. It most certainly is not! This is our messy, missional fridge featuring some hand drawn princesses from Laura’s and Rhonda’s kids :)
We’d love to see pictures of your coin collection turned prayer magnets! Tweet us @missionalwomen or put it on our Facebook page.
