Mother's Day Pendants

Hi there! Looking for a personalized but easy gift to make your mom for Mother's Day? I have the perfect thing! These pendants are super easy to make and are so precious.

You will need the following supplies:
- Sweet beads Fundamental Findings pendant, any style
- Mod Podge, matte or glossy
- a photo sized to fit your pendant (print multiple copies in case you make a mistake)

First, either use the image template that comes with your pendant or use the pendant itself to trace the shape onto your image.

When I used the image template I noticed it was a little too small and when I used the pendant to trace it was a little too big.  I used the bigger one and just trimmed it down a little bit.

Next, use a little bit of mod podge to glue your photo into your pendant. Let it dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Finally, use the epoxy dome that comes with your pendant and press it over your photo.

You can use any photo for this project but I recommend not using an original.  Make a copy on printer paper or photo paper.  You can also add a quote to your photo in Microsoft Word or Photoshop.  To make it a complete necklace you can put your pendant on a nice chain or cording and maybe add some charms or beads to dress it up, all can be found in our Bead Shop.  Moms will adore this gift!

Until next time, happy crafting!
