Ok, I confess, I’m a huge fan of The Hunger Games, and can’t wait until the movie comes out. And after making the book page necklace I showed you yesterday, I think I went a little crazy thinking about all the ways to wear my favorite books. :)
Last Halloween I made a Spiderweb Bracelet, knowing I’d adapt it to another occasion somewhere down the line. Well, that occasion has arrived! (And a side note, can I just mention that I have been so proud of myself lately for doing all my crafting out of my stash!)
If you want the full tutorial, hop on over to my original post. This is a really easy project. All you need is some sort of chain with bezels/blanks (this one came from Michael’s, and last time I was there, I saw that they still carry them), flat-bottomed glass gems from the floral dept, a heavy-duty permanent adhesive (like E6000), your graphic, and some Mod Podge.
A note: the glass gems you get from the floral department aren’t perfectly round, nor are they perfectly flat on the bottom. So if this is what you use, expect a few bubbles.
Personally, that doesn’t bother me at all – it’s my opinion that it adds character, but I know a less-than perfect look isn’t for everyone. So if you prefer a smooth and bubble-free look, you’ll want to order smooth glass tiles, or try Mod-Podging to the top of something small (what about Scrabble tiles?) and add some dimensional glaze to the top. You can achieve a similar look with a lot of different mediums!
I link up to these great parties!
