For the last 2 crafts we made for the Christmas Craft Challenge, we had these 2 crafts left to make:
First up is the necklace.
SUPPLIES: 2” washer – natural leather cording – magnetic closure – scrapbook paper – modge podge – foam brush (all purchased @ Michael’s Craft Store)
I had already purchased the cording (I used it for our Merry Christmas sign)
Step 1: Cut out your scrapbook paper using the washer for a guide. You want to cut a smidge smaller than the actual washer. Modge podge paper to washer 3-4 coats. Letting it each coat dry 20-30 minutes before adding the next. Let cure overnight.
Step 2: Using your cording cut to desired length. Tie a slip knot around the washer. Then tie a square knot at the top to make sure it’s secure and not going to loosen.
Step 3: Attach the magnetic closure by threading cording through eye holes and tying square knots to secure. Trim ends.
Tile Coasters – these are great because you can do a holiday theme, a monogram, or even just a pretty pattern. If you choose to a monogram – print them out from your computer and cut your paper to fit. Same concept as using a napkin or scrapbook paper.
Supplies: 4x4 white tiles – cute napkins – modge podge – foam brush – cork – liquid nails – exacto knife – clear acrylic sealer
Step 1: Separate front of napkin from back – making the paper less bulky. Apply modge podge to tile the place napkin on tile. Applying a layer of modge podge to the top of the napkin. Repeat 3-4 times allowing each coat to dry between.
Step 2: Once you have your desired finish. Apply sealer in a well ventilated area – i.e. outside! Let dry.
Step 3: Cut cork to fit the tiles. Apply LiquidNails generously and attach to tile. Allow to dry – and done!
Pretty easy and super sweet presents! Let me know if you try any of these – would love to see your finished products!
Now that I’ve shared what we made, next up I will be sharing ALL the many crafts I received! They out did themselves!!
