By now I'm hoping that you've heard of the Mod Melts and Molds program by my friends Cathie and Steve, but if you haven't, let me introduce you! Basically the jist is that you use Mod Melts sticks in your hot glue gun and melt them into Mod Molds – creating your own embellishments. Cool, right? These embellishments can be painted, decoupaged, crackled, glittered . . . pretty much anything you want to do with them. It's pretty amazing. You can reuse the molds over and over, too. I want to show you how I used the Mold Melts and Molds to make my own jewelry. Read on to learn how I did it!

Choose the shapes you would like to use from your Mod Molds. I chose a larger flower, a smaller flower and two leaves. Then, using a warmed up hot glue gun, spread the milk glass melts into the Mod Mold shapes of your choice (read the package if you need to). Fill the entire mold and let cool.
You can easily pop the embellishment out of the mold and trim if you need to!
Paint the shapes using the FolkArt colors of your choice. Once they are dry, add Extreme Glitter to the top. I then made them really fun by gluing rhinestones in the center of both flowers with the jewel glue.
I LOVE the Mod Melts and Molds for jewelry. Even I'm surprised how quickly I made these projects. Amazing, yay! I hope you enjoy your DIY necklace and ring. Personalize using any scrapbook papers or paint colors of your choice – that is the fun part.
