We are in the tail end of a long winter so I have to find ways to pass the weekend afternoons since I'm not outdoorsy. Thankfully the kids are old enough to go play outside mostly unsupervised leaving me time alone in the house. I spend a lot of time on Etsy looking for ideas to steal and the supplies I need to do them. I just started making these glass pendant necklaces...First you need some pretty paper. These were not my first choices but I wasn't up to going out in the snow so I went with them.
I ordered these round silver trays and the domed glass inserts that fit inside. I also found I needed the corresponding circle punch. On my first attempt, I tried to trace and cut out a circle myself and ended up with more of an oval. Thanks to the AC Moore $10 coupon I earned from shopping there, I got this punch and a blackberry candle for only 61 cents.
These circles are what you want-perfectly round. I wanted something bright but I couldn't decide if I liked these or not.
Now it's just a case of doing some gluing. I learned how to do this in kindergarten. I glued the circles into the trays and let them dry a little.
Then, I glued the glass tops in place and now I have 3 new necklaces. I only like 2 of them so I'm going to have to take another trip to the store for some new paper...
