Do you want to add a fun pop of color and sparkle to your Summer? Then I have the perfect craft for you. Today I want to show you how I turned Woodpeckers Crafts adorable Chunky Popsicle Cutout into a colorful and whimsical magnet. These magnets are the perfect way to display your memories and invites on your fridge this Summer.
Woodpeckers Crafts has the best wooden craft products around, and their line of wooden chunky cutouts are so sweet. When I saw their new Chunky Popsicle Cutout I knew they would make the perfect Summertime craft. I love their dimension, and how they create the perfect base for the rhinestones and the magnet.
I love how sweet and whimsical these Chunky Popsicle Cutouts turned out, and I love how you can customize them to whatever color scheme that fits your style! I hope you enjoy making yours just as much as I did!
Now enjoy a short video tutorial showcasing how to make your own Bling Ice Cream Pop Magnet.

Continue below for the step-by-step picture tutorial to create your own bedazzled magnet!
To make your own Bling Ice Cream Pop Magnet, you will need:
- Woodpeckers Crafts Chunky Popsicle Cutout
- Craft Paint (For this project I used Folk Art’s colors in 1) Baby Pink, 2) Fire Coral, 3) Bright Pink, 4) Adrift, 5) Ballet Pink, and 6) Medium Yellow
- Craft Paintbrush
- Glue Bottle with Precision Tip
- Gem Glue (For this project I used Beacon’s Gem-Tac)
- Small Rhinestones in Different Colors
- Rhinestone Tray
- Pen Tool for the Rhinestones
- Permanent Craft Glue (For this project I used Beacon’s Fabri-Tac)
Paint the Chunky Popsicle Cutouts
Decide on a color palette. I chose a fun blue and red, with different shades of pink, and yellow for a cheerful Summer vibe! But you can choose whatever color scheme your heart desires.
Once you decide on a color palette, apply one coat of craft paint to the front and sides of the popsicle cutout.
You can also choose to create a fun color block effect with the help of painter’s tape. Just have fun with the design and color palette. *My only recommendation is to keep the design simple so that the rhinestones can shine and be the star of the show!
Attach the Rhinestones to the Painted Popsicle Cutout
To help with better precision and application, add gem glue to a small bottle with a precision tip.
*I also recommend using a rhinestone tray for easy access to the rhinestones during application.
Apply one thin line of gem glue to the painted cutout.
*Don’t worry if you apply too much glue, because it will dry clear.
Use rhinestones that are in the same color story as the paint. Then one at a time, use the pen tool to attach the same colored rhinestones to the line of glue.
I kept my rhinestone design simple by attaching the rhinestones in a line so that they match up, but you can choose whatever rhinestone design you want.
Continue to attach the rhinestones to the popsicle.
*You can attach rhinestones to the entire popsicle, or to specific parts of the popsicle. It is up to you! My only suggestion here is to try to color match the rhinestones to the paint color.
Attach the Magnet to the Bedazzled Popsicle Cutout
Once the glue is dry and the rhinestones are secure, turn the popsicle cutout over. Then, use permanent craft glue to attach a magnet to the back of the cutout.
