Make Resin and Ribbon Necklaces with Dimensional Magic and Stickers!

Here’s another Spring Break Kids’ Craft Idea!!

Today I am sharing a little Spring Necklace idea. Can I tell you how excited I am for SPRING???? I can’t wait. In the meantime — here’s a little project I shared at Brassy Apple - that is helping me fight away the winter blues. And it uses Dimensional Magic — which is SUCH a fun medium.

Ribbon and Resin Necklaces

Here’s what you need:

Scrapbook Paper or Stickers

Metal, Wood or Chipboard — for the back of the pendants

Mod Podge

Dimensional Magic

Necklace Bails

Ribbon or Chain

Here’s What You Do:

 

  1. Take a sticker or a piece of scrapbook paper and stick it or Mod Podge it onto your backing. 
  2. Cut out the shape in your metal, wood or chipboard backing.
  3. Add a layer of Mod Podge to the top of the paper or sticker.
  4. Once dry, outline the paper with Dimensional Magic, and fill it in. 
  5. Sand off the edges.

6. Let that dry.

**A tip — if you have bubbles, pop them with a lighter.

7. Add a Metal Necklace Bail to the back. Adhere it with something like E6000 or 9001.

8. Add some tags and cut the holes with a Cropodile.

9. Or add some buttons. {these are from the Dear Lizzy line from American Crafts.

10. Add a length of ribbon or chain and tie in a bow at the side.

And I bought a little $1 scrapbooking kit from Target and made a little necklace out of it.

I think it would be fun to give as a gift. The notebook and the necklace together.

This would be a fun idea if you wanted to make a necklace with a special picture, or even small pictures of your kids’ faces.

Thanks for letting me share it with you!!

  1. So cute! I definitely need to get my hands on some Dimensional Magic, it looks like great stuff

  2. I still want to try that dimensional magic stuff!

  3. Really beautiful. When you say – pop the bubbles with the lighter. what do you mean exactly? I’m afraid that I’ll be damaging the surface if I get the lighter too close.

    • Hi donna!!
      If you have bubbles that rise to the surface of the resin (Dimensional Magic) it’s hard to pop them. There’s something in a flame that pops the bubbles. So you can use a lighter or matches and if you hold it above the surface, the bubbles will pop. Don’t let the flame touch the surface or it can scorch it.

  4. Jen those are so cute! I LOVE the one your daughter is wearing. The ribbons make them so much fun! What kind of metal is that and did you cut it with plain scissors?

    • Thanks Kelli!! It’s metal sheet I found at the craft store. They are thinner than regular metal sheets at the Hardware store. But if you can’t find metal sheets, you could use plastic to back the stickers or decoupage paper onto before you put the Dimensional Magic on top.

      I love ribbons. I think they are so Spring-ish. Have a great day my friend!!

  5. these are so darling! that lighter you have looks kinda big & scary though – ha! soooo gonna add this to my crafty to do list! cute cute!

    • Thanks so much!! I know my lighter is a little scary LOL. You can also use matches, they will also make the bubbles in the resin pop.
