Step 1: Materials & Tools

Materials:
• 80´s sweat wristband. You know you have one laying around.
• Fridge magnet. One fast food joint phone number less. 99 to go.
• Little round magnets scrapped from stuff around the house.

Tools:
• Scissors
• Contact Glue

Step 2: Gluing and Cuting Open

Glue the round magnets to the fridge magnet. While the glue is drying, cut open about an inch of the 80´s sweat wristband

Step 3: Slide the Magnet Dance

When everything is dry, slide the magnets into the wristband

If you want to go full ghetto style, staple the opening. You can also sew, but more metal is always better.

Now drop some screws on your magnetic wrist

    It crossed my mind, but the ones I had were already used in another project and I dont think is worth to hold nails and screws.
