I save everything! Hi, my name is Dinah and I am a Hoarder. Apparently it runs in the family because my brother saves everything too! When I was helping him purge his home for his big move coming up (sad face), I took some goodies with me including these old prescription pill cases. I decided to turn them into easy repurposed magnets for craft storage in my craft room.


  • Prescription pill bottles
  • Strong glue
  • Magnets

I guess I don’t really need a tutorial for this because it’s self-explanatory, BUT I’m not only a hoarder but also apparently obsessed with taking step-by-step photos of everything… ha!! So here are the pill bottles, just in case you don’t know what the look like.


I flipped them upside down and used Elmer’s Probond Advanced glue. This glue is great because it’ll adhere anything. You can even use it on cement! Anyway, I let them dry overnight.

I put some of my craft supplies in them and stuck them up on my magnet board with the other small plastic cases I added magnets to.  Consider using different kinds of small cases as magnets.  I use them for beads, paper clips, jewelry notions, sewing notions, safety pins, you name it! I think I even have some wiggly eyes for kid’s crafts in one of them. They really come in handy and are now easily accessible.

I hope you try it out!
