Flower necklaces

For little Easter gifties I designed flower necklaces for my peeps. I started with a few of my flower photos and then came up with a word that matched each friend to go with a flower.

I printed the flowers out and put them in empty pendants. To fill them in, I found this really cool Mod Podge product called Dimensional Magic that acts like epoxy.

I learned a few lessons along the way. #1 glue down the photo before you squirt in the Mod Podge - I didn't do that and the photos floated to the top. #2 pop any bubbles with a needle -when I pushed the photos back down they made bubbles. The bubbles stayed and now they get in the way of the words. I probably wouldn't have got bubbles in the first place if I had glued the photos down.

The bubbles bug me and I will probably make another batch to replace these bubbly ones.


  1. These are absolutely darling. And I think the bubbles are endearing and show that they are handmade, which I think adds a special touch.

  2. Your holiday crafts and gifts are always an inspiration. I'm going to borrow this for a shower idea.

  3. This is a good post. This post gives truly quality information. Really very useful tips are provided here. Keep up the good works!
