I love to craft with recyclables and thrift store items. Dominos and game pieces are always great for crafts. With so many of us stuck at home, it’s a great time to clean out those cabinets and drawers at home and get creative. Use leftover game pieces with paper and photos to make some unique jewelry pieces.

Supplies Used for Domino Pendant Art

  • Domino pieces or scrabble tiles
  • Scrapbook paper, photos, paper scraps, ephemera, etc.

Trim figures, photos, and text to place on the tile. Stickers, catalogs, paper packs, magazines, etc. are all great places to find text and images to use on this project.

Use Decoupage medium to add the patterned background to the tile.

Once it is dry you can add on dimensional pieces like cabochon flowers, crowns, glitter, etc. using glue or decoupage medium.

Cover the top of the Domino with Liquid Glass or a similar product. If you don’t have this, you can just seal with another layer of decoupage medium.

Liquid glass looks cloudy when wet but dries to a clear, glass like finish.

This is what the domino pendant art looks like dried. Glue a jewelry bail to the back of the domino so you can make a necklace! You could also glue a magnet to the back instead to decorate with. There are lots of fun ways to use these teeny tiny canvases! Have fun crafting and creating with thrifted stuff!
