It’s Tutorial Tuesday again! Huzzah!
After last weeks DIY Flower Rings were so popular, I decided to share how I make Flower Pendent necklaces! Another cute craft to do, right before Mother’s Day and just in time to spruce up your spring wardrobe. They are so cute and so easy to make and they are really inexpensive which will probably make you smack yourself in the head for not making these sooner.
Read on to learn how to do this incredibly easy craft!
I got everything I used at Michael’s Craft Stores, I love one stop shopping! Don’t forget your 40% off coupons! Those can be a life saver with high ticket items.
You’ll need E-6000 glue, Cabochons, and findings to create the flower pendents. The findings I used are small and just glue to the back easily, but you can also use a filigree finding if you prefer a fancier or more vintage look. The ones I choose are very simple.
Other than this, all you will need to have is a chain necklace to put the pendent on. You can either buy one, or make one using chain, a couple jump rings and a clasp. It’s very simple, and customizable.
Using your E-6000, apply a thin layer of glue onto the back of the cabochon. Don’t use too much, or it will squirt out everywhere. I always use a little extra because I feel like a little around the edges of the finding helps it stay on better.
Center the finding, and secure. Let dry at least 12 hours, or overnight. The glue will set within the hour, but really cures best if you let it sit for a bit.
Slip your flower pendent onto your chain, and wear! Or gift it to someone you love! They really are so cute aren’t they? Perfect little charms! Plus you can add additional charms and beads to make it your own!
How easy is that? I bet you didn’t know how simple it was to make your own flower pendents for necklaces, did you? You can use this technique for any type of flat back element, stones, jewels, the possibilities are endless!
