DIY Washer Pendant

Another fun, yet cheap, idea! Go get some washers from a hardware store (about 3 cents), some scrapbook paper and string or wire and make yourself a cute necklace pendant. Doesn’t take long and costs very little.

 

 

Things You Will Need:

String
Washers
Mod Podge
Paint brush
Diamond glaze
Scissors/exacto knife

 

 

Step 1:

Measure and cut some of your scrapbook paper to match the size of the washer you have chosen. You will need some for the front and back. Don’t mind the rough edges just yet because those will be glued down and you won’t be able to tell a difference.

 

 

Step 2:

Apply some Mod Podge to one side of your washer.

 

 

 

 

Step 3:

Press the scrapbook paper on to the washer. Make sure the glue gets pushed all the way to the ends.  Run your finger around the inside and outside of the washer to make sure all of the edges of the scrapbook paper are glued down.

 

 

 

Step 4:

Coat the scrapbook paper with a few layers of Mod Podge just to make sure it is securely fastened.

*Repeat steps 1-4 for the opposite side.

 

 

Step 5: (optional)

Once both sides are dry lay your soon-to-be pendant on a flat surface and apply an even layer of diamond glaze to the upward side. Make sure you get to the edges and inside. This will make your pendant look like it is covered in glass. It will be very shiny once it dries. Wait several hours before touching it again. This stuff takes quite a while to dry.

*repeat for opposite side once finished.

 

 

 

Slip some string through it and you have a lovely new pendant! This picture really doesn’t do it justice unfortunately.  When I have some better lighting I will take another one.

I plan to make a few more of these so I will be sure to post them on here when I finish. Thanks!

      I feel the same way about washers. I was like they have to be useful for something else. Something cute!
