Supplies

Some things that you will need:

  • Mod Podge
  • Some Kind of Paint Brush
  • Necklace Chain
  • A Clear Pendant (Any Shape)
  • A Pendant Holder or Mount
  • A Small Picture
  • Scissors

The Reason

The person in the picture that I used is my brother in law, Austin, who is currently serving a 2 year LDS (Mormon) mission.

I decided to make this necklace of him for my mother in law for her birthday. This can be made for a loved one or simply for yourself with a picture of anything or anyone that you want.

How It Is Done

  1. I secretly borrowed a favorite picture which was 8x10 and took it down to a local printing shop. There they shrunk a copy down to about an inch. It was super cheap, I paid less than a dollar for this service. Kinko's is a place that can do this too.
  2. I then returned the borrowed picture and cut my copy to fit my clear oval pendant.
  3. Once the picture was the size and shape that I wanted I brushed on a layer of Mod Podge (On the picture side not the back) and placed it against the clear pendant and held it in place for a little bit until I felt it was secure.
  4. After gluing the picture to the pendant I brushed another layer of Mod Podge on the top and around the edges of the pendant and picture and let it dry thoroughly.
  5. When the Necklace had enough time to dry I put two more coats of Mod Podge around the sides of the picture to create a seal onto the Pendant.
  6. After letting the project dry thoroughly I then glued the pendant mount or holder onto the back and held it in place for a bit and then put a layer of Mod Podge over it to help create a seal.
  7. Put it on the chain once it is all dry and the necklace is complete!

Where to Buy Supplies?

I got the necklace chain, the clear pendant, and the pendant mount or holder all at a craft store for pretty cheap. Some places you might be able to find these things are Craft Warehouse (where I went), Michael's, Joann Fabrics, Wal-Mart and many others!

Your local craft store should carry these supplies. I got my Mod Podge from Wal-Mart but it can be bought at other stores or even made at home.

All done!
All done!

Helpful Hints

I used a small clamp to hold the pendant holder onto the picture and pendant to make sure it dried nice and tight.

Also, it helps to wash the glue out of your brush soon after you are done or it dries on there and can ruin brushes. It can be difficult to get off if left on there longer than a few minutes.

The Mod Podge will dry clear even though it goes on white so do not worry about that.

Who is this for?

This is a pretty simple and cheap yet meaningful project that can be done by adults or kids with supervision. It is super easy to personalize and not that hard to make. This project is also pretty cheap. You can get the supplies for just a few bucks.

The End!

Thank you for reading my hub, I hope it gave you a fun idea! Feel free to leave a comment or two.
