How we did it:

Materials List

  1. heavy cardboard
  2. glitter glue
  3. craft jewels
  1. Cut a shape out of thick cardboard box. Punch a hole in it. We used glitter glue because of its color, but you could also paint your cardboard shape (let it dry) and then use regular, clear drying glue over top of it. If you don't have craft jewels on hand you can also use beads or anything sparkly.

  2. Cover your shape with glitter glue (or paint your cardboard, let it dry, and then cover it with regular glue). It is best to put a thick layer of glue over the entire shape and then stick the jewels on instead of one dot of glue and one jewel at a time.

  3. Set and push each jewel (or bead) into the glue.

  4. Arrange the rest of your jewels. This part is a little messy, but the most fun.

  5. Let your pendant dry completely (over night). We let ours dry on a paper plate. Every few hours, lift the pendant off of the plate so it doesn't glue itself to it. Your pendent may not lay flat right away, but as the glue dries it is heavier and should dry flat. Lace a piece of string or ribbon through the hole of the pendant and wear your sparkly art!
