How to make Halloween fabric scrap magnets

Halloween decorations don't have to be over the top or tacky to make an impact. To bring a little Halloween spirit into the kitchen, make these Halloween-themed magnets that are a subtle way to show off your love for this spooky holiday.
Only a small amount of fabric is used in this DIY, making it very budget-friendly. Use leftover pieces of fabric from previous Halloween crafts or search the remnant section of the craft store for an even more inexpensive option. Either way, finish off the magnet with gold twine to elevate the overall look.
