Whether you’re a fan of the game yourself or can’t quite understand what the buzz is all about, it’s hard to deny the popularity of Pokemon Go, the virtual reality game that was launched earlier this month. While the game has fans staring at their phones for hours on end, it is getting families up and out of the house as they hunt for Pokemon characters together. After all, you gotta catch ’em all!

If your family is a fan of the game, show off your Pokemon pride by making iconic Pokemon accessory, a Poke Ball, into a magnet of your very own.

Materials

  • Small, wooden craft disc
  • Craft paints: red, white, black
  • Construction paper: white, black
  • Paintbrushes
  • Skinny washi tape
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • Glue stick
  • Magnet
  • Circular craft punches: 1″, 3/4″, 1/2″

Instructions

To get started, place a piece of skinny washi tape across the center of your wooden disc.

 

Next, get ready to paint! Add red to one half of the circle and let dry. After that, add the white paint to the remaining half and let dry once again.

 

Carefully peel away the washi tape from the center of the disc. Paint the open area black. Let dry.

 

With your circular punches, punch:

  • 1″ circle – black
  • 3/4″ circle – white
  • 1/2″ circle – black

Layer the circles from biggest to smallest, attaching with your glue stick. Add a swipe of glue to the back of the stack and attach to the center of the disc. Turn the disc over and glue your magnet blank into place with hot glue.
