Spring is right around the corner my friends! I can't believe how nice the weather is here in Atlanta. It's downright wonderful. But I have a feeling that is only going to last for so long and then it's going to be hot potato around here. But I can enjoy the spring while it lasts!
I was recently at the dollar store and picked up some seeds to try my hand at spring gardening. I don't know how it's going to work but hey, it's only $1-ish per packet! So no harm done if it doesn't happen for me. And because I like to save anything pretty, I kept the front of the seed packet and then turned one into a DIY necklace. When I say this is the easiest craft ever, I mean it! If you want to learn to make your own necklace, this tutorial is for you.
Make Your Own Necklace from a Seed Packet
Gather These Supplies
- Wood pendant
- Mod Podge Satin
- Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
- Seed packet
- FolkArt acrylic paint – color to coordinate with your seed packet
- Satin cord
- Jewelry findings
Paint a medium layer of Mod Podge on the front of the pendant and smooth the seed packet cutout to the front. Let dry for 15 – 20 minutes, then coat the entire pendant in Mod Podge and let dry. Make sure to punch the hole out for the jump ring/necklace cord with a pencil.
After the Mod Podge is dry, add Dimensional Magic to the top of the pendant and let dry overnight.
To finish, add a jump ring to the pendant and then satin cord. You can add a regular necklace chain as well, but I thought the satin cord would be fun. Just make sure to cut a long enough length so that it can slip over your head!
