DIY | Hot Wheels Magnets

Today, I made Hot Wheels magneeeeets!!! I think this is cool for kids...or anyone that like cars. It's super easy to do. I don't even think I'm going to write out instructions like I normally do lol. 


I took pictures of my materials all nice and laid out and then I accidentally deleted it from my phone :(. But I pretty much only used three things...
  • Hot Wheels
  • E-6000 glue
  • 3/4" ceramic magnet discs
I got the Hotwheels from Target for $.97 each. I think you can get them even cheaper from Walmart. You can get E-6000 glue from any craft store like Michaels or A.C. Moore and I believe Target and Walmart also sell this glue. I got mine from Michaels. You can also use a glue gun or any other strong glue you may have. I used 3/4" magnets, which I purchased from Lowes. They were about $3 for a pack of eight.

Simply glue one magnet to the bottom center of the car, following the instructions of the glue manufacturer for application and suggested drying times. My particular glue recommends you let it sit for at least 24 hours before handling. If you use E-6000, I would also recommend applying it with a Q-tip or a toothpick. It's very goopy and you have more control when you use something to apply it versus squeezing it out.   

And there you have it!! Oh and P.S., I went really crazy with making magnets so there are more magnet DIYs to come lol. 

Stay Inspired.


  1. Dope as shit Scates!
    My son will LOVE this.

    VERY inspired indeed.

  2. Nice! offers clip on magnets for hotwheels, matchbox, etc. This is a reusable alternative to using glue which will not damage your car. And they're cheap!
