Today I have a super cute DIY for you all! I’m going to teach you all how to make these adorable necklaces from your favorite instagram pictures of your pets. This is a super easy craft, and it’s very economical as well. This would be a great craft for a party! You could also make batches of them for holiday gifts for your girlfriends, teachers, dog park friend, etc. If you buy your supplies off of Etsy, you can make these little cuties for about a dollar a piece! I bought all of my supplies from Sun and Moon Crafts on Etsy. You can see their shop here. So gather your favorite instagrams of your favorite furry friends, and let’s get crafting!
Here’s What You Need:
*1″ Clear Glass Tiles
*Amazing Glaze, craft glaze, or decoupage medium( I used Amazing glaze)
*Cardstock printed with your images
*Chain, Ribbon, or Cording for hanging
Step 1: Print image sheet- In photoshop elements or a photo editing program reduce down your instagram pictures to a little less than an inch(.0875), then drag them onto a blank 8.5×11 page. Once you have all the images you want on your page, save and print. Now gather all your suplies together. Cut out square pictures.
Step 2: Apply Photo with Glaze- Apply a thin layer of glaze to bumpy side of glass tile. Then place image face down on glazed side of tile and press and smooth out any bubbles. Let dry.
Step 3: Glaze Back of tile- Paint a layer of glaze on the back side of the tile. Let dry.
Step 4: Glue Bail- Place a small dab of E6000 in the top middle of the back of your tile. Then firmly press on a jewelry bail. Let Dry. Finish by hanging on a chain or ribbon, and enjoy!
Don’t you just love them! I love being able to wear my favorite gals around my neck! It’s like carrying a little piece of happiness with you all day! Not only is this such an easy craft, it’s also so economical! Definitely a fantastic craft for keeping or for giving! Hope you all enjoy!
