Glass Tile Pendants- Perfect Mother's Day Gift!

After my week long hiatus, I'm back! And what a better way to come back than with a fabulous Mother's Day gift idea? I am also using this project for This is the Year's Mod Podge Mania! Check out Xamin's blog for more awesome ideas!



Similar versions of this project are floating around out there, but this version is SUPER easy and inexpensive.


Gather your supplies:
Scrapbook paper
Glass stones/Glass tiles (the stones are less expensive and can be found at any craft store)
Pen
Scissors
Mod Podge
Sponge Brush


Let's get started!!


Take your scrapbook paper and trace around stone. Cut traced circle out-making it slightly smaller.


Apply a light layer of mod podge to the back of the stone-it doesn't need much. Place the cut circle face down onto the glue and smooth out any creases, wrinkles or bubbles that may form. Then apply another coat of mod modge over the back and edges of the paper to seal it into place. Don't worry about any run over mod podge, it is easily cleaned off later.


This part goes so fast you can make several different stones in about 15 minutes while waiting for the others to dry. The possibilities are endless!

Glue your bail onto the back and let dry for at least an hour.


Wha la! A beautiful necklace that can be interchangeable with different stones.


Other suggestions for this project:
  • Instead of gluing a bail to the back, glue a magnet to spice up your fridge
  • Make a bunch, leave the stones with out any hardware attached and place them in a glass bowl for a centerpiece
  • Use pictures of your kids instead of scrapbook paper and send to the grandparents
  • Others?

  2. Great project, thanks for sharing. I've seen similar necklaces made from Scrabble tiles, but they are way more labor intensive. I think I like this idea better!

  9. I like how you used supplies that are more readily available, for some reason having to special order things always makes me put it off and off and off...
