step 1 – draw around your bottle tops on the reverse side of your fabric and then cut out

step 2 – dip your paint brush into the PVA glue and apply a thin coat to the inside of your bottle tops,then gently stick your circles of fabric inside then apply another thin layer of PVA over the top of the fabric

step 3 – turn the bottle tops over,take your magnetic tape and cut into squares then apply the magnetic tape to the bottle tops sticky side down

step 4 – wait for the PVA glue to dry and then your magnets are ready to use.I have used mine to brighten up my workspace but they look good on the fridge to.

So simple to do and as the hubs said it gave him an excuse to have a beer all the time I was collecting the bottle tops !

I hope you all had a lovely weekend,now I am of to make the most of the sunshine in the garden whilst it lasts.
