welcoming another one of my greatest bloggy BFFs... India of Afro-Indy-Chic!
Things you will need:
Scrap cardboard (thin like old cereal box)
A tracable image.... (print something off the interent make sure the out lines are distinct)
glue ( i used rubber cement... makes no difference) acrylic paint
bottle nosed pliers
|Here is my pendant. Its already cut out, pasted onto card board, and painted.|
|This is the laminating plastic I used... I just used the sticky side. It wasn't worth it in the end. But just in case you may like it, you can try it. Or find another way to make your pendant more resistant and shiny.|
|Here is the owl wrapped in plastic. :)|
|I cut off acess plastic then used my handy dandy lighter to melt the remaing around the edges.|
|I poked a whole through the top of its head and added a jump ring. :)|
|Here is the finished product. :)|
|Here are a few more I did.|
This owl is the first pendant I made that actually made sense. I know that its really simple... but I just wanted something presentable to show you guys. :) I hope my instructions helped. If not you can always follow This and This. The blogger is Karolin Felix, and she makes some pretty good pieces. My bff (google) told me all about her. The details are just as simple but a little more in depth. I just put my own spin, with making the pendants something I would wear. :)
Come to my blog for the next post. I will show you how I turned basic cardboard pendants into these earrings.
Let me know what you think.
