Ready for part two of crafting with cabochons?
On Monday I showed you how easy and pretty inexpensive it is to craft with cabochons. If you missed it, you can find it here.
This pendant is a little different, so I'm sharing it separately. It's still pretty basic, so even if you're a beginning crafter it won't be too challenging.
Acrylic Flowers (from Plaid Barn)
To make your own flower garden pendant:
Step one: Place your pendant blank on a flat surface. Choose your flowers and arrange them until they fill the blank in a way you like.
Step two: Remove the flowers one at a time so you can keep the arrangement. Cover the blank with E-6000 and then add the flowers back to the blank one at a time. The E-6000 takes a few minutes to set so you will want to keep an eye on your project. I had to keep propping one of the flowers back up because it was sliding out of place.
Step three: Glue small rhinestones into the center of each flower.
You're done! Now just add a jump ring and a chain, and you have a beautiful new accessory.
I liked the flowers with the rhinestones so much that I made a few hair pins, as well.
