Christmas Ornament Refrigerator Magnets

A jolly welcome to Red Couch Recipes where I bring you a simple little craft to help you "Deck Your Halls."   You might like to give these to your neighbors or a friend.  They are so inexpensive, so cute, and provide a big impact.

Just get some small Christmas balls, plastic, from the Dollar Store and some magnets.  Then attach the magnets to the back of the ornament with hot glue and VOILA, a cute refrigeration decoration.  Joni's Notes:  {You may want to try using a stronger adhesive, such as E-6000.  One of my ornaments was knocked off the fridge last night and the magnet came off}.  I love how it really sticks out on the fridge,
You can tie a bow on or leave it plain.  I like it both ways. 

You could tie a bow on and attach it to a cellophane bag filled with goodies.
Box it up and give it as a gift.  I plan on giving a few of these :).

My daughter asked me while I was making these, "Is this your idea?"  No, I saw it on Pinterest but I didn't pin it so I can't give it proper attribution.
Thanks for dropping by Red Couch Recipes and may your "Christmas Be the Merriest!"

I LOVE these! I was just thinking that I wanted to do something to spruce up the fridge for the holidays.... I'm headed to the dollar store tomorrow!!! Found you through TT&J. Hope you'll stop by tomorrow for Pinfest.

I saw this on Pinterest, too!!! I have tons of ornaments that I am always buying at the after Christmas sales. I just picked up some of the magnets at Walmart and bought some Liquid Nails as that what they had recommended. I might just try the glue gun like you did, though. I am having my Cookie Exchange on Sunday and hoped to get them done for then as part of my decorations, but not sure if that will happen. Thanks for giving me that nudge, though!!!

Hmmm -- maybe liquid nails would be better, because of one falls off the fridge, the magnet might fall off. Thanks for the tip! Joni

That is so cute! Much cuter than all the clutter that graces the front of my refrigerator!

So cute, great choice of ornaments for the project.

I'm so behind in blog land that I'm just now seeing this. I really love that idea! I happen to have some leftover ornaments at the house that would be perfect for this, too. I also have magnets in stash.

Great idea!

Before I thought I knew a lot of things could be decorated in your house for the holidays.But now I know that EVERYTHING can be decorated, even the fridge! What a great idea to make the christmas spirit special. I nevver thought of this handy dandy tool- putting magnets on things. You could put it on just about anything!!!
Best wishes,
