I love gemstone and agate designs, but anything remotely rock-like gets stolen by my children, to be pushed around by their toy bulldozers, so I needed to get creative. Adding some graphic gem designs to our house has been on my decorating list for a while, and I recently had the motivation to hang up some visual affirmations. Reminders help me maintain some of the changes I’ve been working towards in the new year! I have a free pattern and tutorial for how to make felt faux gem magnets if you want to try yourself; they are quick and easy – I can picture a whole set in jewel tones.

These are some of my favorite colors, so I love having them up on the fridge. I like these so much better than the plain, boring ones we were using before!

Silk products make it easy to switch towards more plant based products – I didn’t know they even had non-dairy yogurt until this post but my husband is going to be happy. He grew up loving cow milk and yogurt, but realized as an adult that he felt a lot better not drinking/eating it. 

Increasing our calcium intake is always on my radar since I have a family history of deficiency, so this was perfect timing. I bought both Silk products at Walmart; they had other flavor yogurts and several alternative milk options. We usually drink almond milk but love cashews and wanted to try it, everyone liked it!

You can see where to find them on Walmart’s shelves above, they recently had new packaging updates, I had never noticed the Silk yogurt before.

If you’d like to make some diy magnets for yourself, it will only take an afternoon; or get friends together and make it a craft night.

How to Make Faux Gem Magnets

Supplies

Steps

1- Transfer the pattern on to the felt and stitch around the design with the perle cotton floss. I used a simple back stitch. If you used Fabri Solvy, now is the time to rinse it away! Lay the gem shape on top of the felt and cut a second, matching shape for the back.

2- Use the coordinating floss (1 strand) or thread and hand sew a running stitch (or blanket stitch would work too) around the outer edges. Stop with about 1″ open and gently insert stuffing, then the magnet, and more stuffing around it. I like using hemostats to get stuffing in there! Finish sewing it closed, and you’re done!

How are your New Year’s resolutions going – what will you put up on your fridge as a visual reminder? Which of the Silk products is your favorite?
