One of my favorite hobbies is creating jewelry. Last week I found some cute pendant bases at Joann’s called Signed, Sealed, and Remembered that I wanted to try and use. There were different sized pendants to choose from, along with a lot of other fun jewelry pieces.
I loved the weight on these, and they came with a clear, puffy sticker to seal it. The best part was that all of the pendants were 40% off! Love that!
To make my pendants I searched through my scrapbook papers and fabric that had small floral and heart designs. I thought my girls and I might enjoy wearing them for Valentine’s Day or this spring.
Once I found a few designs that fit, I placed each sticker onto the paper or fabric I had chosen. Then I simply cut around the sticker as closely as possible. To the back of my paper, I applied a very thin layer of tacky glue and gently pressed it into place. I wiped up any of the extra glue.
I loved this sweet purple flower.
The flower pendant turned out so cute. I was out of my favorite black cording, so I substituted a simple black ribbon. You could easily put it onto a chain or ribbon of your choice once you add a jump ring.
To finish the necklace, I made my own beaded wire-wrapped hook and clasp. I love making them because I can match the bead to my pendant.
I thought this little flower pendant would look cute as a hang for my daughter’s backpack. I added a heavier clasp and three crystal beads on headpins.
I thought it would be fun to make a Valentine pendant, too, and found this fun heart in some Valentine scrapbook paper.
I think it turned out really cute. I’m a little undecided if we will actually wear it, but I still think it’s cute. It may end up being reformed into a hang tag for a backpack or something else around the house!
These pendants were a really quick and fun project! They could be used for so many things – to wear or around the house – and for so many different occasions. Wouldn’t they be nice to hang around a votive candle, tied with some ribbon, too?
Have you used them before? I’d love to hear what you made yours into!
