STONE AND WOOD PENDANTS DIY + GIVEAWAY


Happy Friday everyone!  Today I thought I’d share a really simple DIY and show you how to make these faux stone and wood pendants.  Having made simple oven bake clay pendants before, I found the medium really easy to work with and the possibilities endless.  If you have a spare hour this weekend, why not give these pretties a go?

As a bonus this week, I decided to host my first giveaway.  Up for grabs are the two necklaces featured in the final images below.  Just follow the entry instructions and leave a comment as to which one you would prefer.  

Materials:
Oven bake clay – in white and granite
Faux wood drawer liner
Acrylic rolling pin
Round cookie cutter/shot glass
Scissors
Pin/barbeque stick
Gold O-ring
Gold chain with clasp
Modge Podge
Paintbrush
Flat-nose pliers

Method:
1] Condition and roll clay to approximately ¼".
Feel free to mix in a little granite into the white clay to give it a more marbled effect.
2] Cut clay into circles using your cookie cutter/shot glass.
3] Poke a hole at the top of the pendant.

4] Bake clay following the package instructions.
5] Cut a circle out of the drawer liner to fit the pendant.  Half it.

6] Once clay has cooled, stick the paper to the pendant.
7] Seal with a layer of Modge Podge.

8] Attach your chain.



Hope you all have a good weekend and don’t forget to enter the giveaway.  Entry is open to U.S. residents until Friday, 22 August. Good luck! Nicole.
