Today I’m back again with another pipe cleaner craft! We had so much fun making these yesterday and came up with some really fun little ideas. I must admit that these pipe cleaner snail magnets are my favourite of the day. They’re just so adorable and once you get the hang of them they’re really easy to make too. We have a whole garden full of them on our fridge right now!

Remember though that pipe cleaners can be a bit spiky on the ends, we had a few jabs and a couple of tears from ours!

Here’s what we used

Pipe cleaners
Googly eyes
Glue
Scissors
Self adhesive magnets

How to make our pipe cleaner snail magnets

Take your two shell coloured pipe cleaners and twist them together at one end.

Continue twisting the pipe cleaner around each other until you reach the end.

Take one end of your pipe cleaner and begin rolling it around into a spiral shape. Once you are nearing the end, leave the last 2-3cm untouched.

Place your snail coloured pipe cleaner centrally across this loose end and twist it on so that it is secure.

Twist your snail coloured pipe cleaner around the end of your shell one. As you near the top, fold it around a couple of extra times to make a thicker part for the head. Once you reach the end, twist the two ends of your pipe cleaner together to make sure its secure and then leave them pointing upwards for the antennae.
