I ran across a great crafty video created by Hectanooga Patterns that shows how to create round pendants from cardboard and newspapers. Check this out!
So, naturally I had to try it myself. I immediately thought of creating some pendants using the funny pages. However, I soon discovered that I didn’t have any in my stashes of newspapers. So I decided to go another direction.
I don’t drink soda, so I substituted the bottle cap with a glue cap. I certainly have plenty of those lying around.
True to my crafty self, I used the Michael’s flyer to wrap my cardboard circles. I don’t own any paperclips, apparently, so I used safety pins. That is the little circle on the end of the safety pin that you see. I coated each with a good coat of Mod Podge.
And then because I’m the queen of substitution, I used an old quilting magazine for my pendant fronts. Adding several final coats of Mod Podge and painting the edges and backs gold and copper.
A simple project with very cool results!Pin It
