DIY Glass Gem Lace Pendants Recipe from eCrafty.com Valentines Day

These are so pretty and SO easy! Anne created these lacy glass hearts (use as pendants or magnets) with just a few items from eCrafty.com

amhs302hdoilliehearts3

Anne trimmed a paper doily, applied 3D Crystal Lacquer to the back of our 302H-10pc heart glass tiles, let it dry, trimmed the excess edge with scissors, and added one of our 806A-10pc glue-on bails with e-6000 adhesive. Super simple, easy for any age. Make pendants or magnets (glue our 300P magnets to back) with this simple concept! 

amhs302hdoillieheartsneck5

Finished Glass doily heart pendant (above) attached to our eCrafty.com 366.3 pink suede neck cord. We have many neck cords, 10 pack cords, chains, etc. here ~ choose your style to suit your heart!

Get creative – add or swap out glitter for the doily for another very simple project for any age group. Trade out glitter for nail polish – use your nail polish as reverse glass painting. Seal backs with either 3D Crystal Lacquer or quick light coat of e-6000. Let dry fully. 

If you’re lucky enough to have a pretty lace or crochet remnant, that works well too!

And, try mixing up your glass shapes – we stock rectangles, squares, circles, ovals and hearts, click here.

You cannot have a bad day once you are making (or wearing) one of these! Look what Anne whipped up recently with our Encouraging Words charms from eCrafty.com!

DIY Easy Holiday Cheer Charms Necklace Supplies from eCrafty.com Design by Anne Strasser

How to make it:

Anne varied the height of our message charms by changing the size of the jump rings she used to attach each charm to the chain.

She made a simple beaded dangle with a bicone – you could also use any clear translucent glass bead for a dangle. – our rondelle bead mix below is great for making a whole bunch of beaded dangles.

  • To make a beaded dangle, thread the bead onto the ball-end headpin.
  • Loop top/open end around round nose pliers (or a chopstick).
  • Complete the loop, open a jump ring, attach to your chain or cord.
  • Add charms with additional jump rings to get your desired height/hanging/display.

Our word and message charms are sold individually or in a variety pack of 15 – only $1 each!

This is an easy craft to do with groups, classrooms, troops or meetings as there are just a few steps (choose your charms, attach to chain with jump rings) and make a beaded dangle. Easy to change the message by changing the charms!

Look what Cheryl whipped up the other day! How cute are these? She used our Vintage Scrabble Tiles (available by letter) or 100pack bulk scrabble tile letters from eCrafty.com to make these adorable christmas ornaments for each of her grandchildren.

She used e-6000 clear waterproof craft adhesive to glue her tiles onto popsicle sticks and finished each with looped cord to form a hanger.  If you are making this project with younger children, you might want to switch to Elmer’s School Glue.

Every kit comes with our 800P Peel n Stick Double Sided Jewelry Adhesive Strips and either our 803N Clear Epoxy Domes or our 801Z Instant Laminating Film! No liquid sealers necessary! Read on!

We also have 1 x 1.5″ rectangular roped edged keychain kits below ~ in either bright silver or antique silver finishes. Look what Anne whipped up recently with our 1228A-KIT Keychain Kit!

It’s a toss up who is cuter – Anne’s daughter Molly as a toddler or an adult sock monkey. It depends on your perspective! All you will need to add is your own art or photos, and make sure to have a pair of scissors or a trimming board handy.

DIY Easy Keychain Peel n Stick Instant Recipe Supplies from eCrafty.com

Supplies list: (1) 1228A-1KIT or (1) 1228A-10KIT  Each kit contains:

To make your personalized keychain:

  1. Choose your art or photo and trim to fit the jewelry base. (approx 1″ wide x 1.5″ tall).
  2. Cover and protect the top (picture side) of your art with 801Z laminating film by cutting a piece that is a little larger than your art, peeling off the backing and sticking the 801Z onto the “good” side of your art.
  3. Trim off any extra 801Z. Cut a piece of 800P double-sided adhesive film to fit the jewelry base. Peel the backing off one side of the film and stick into the base.
  4. Peel the other side of the backing from the film. (An exacto blade or pin can be helpful to get it started.) Stick the back side of the prepared art onto the sticky film pressing firmly once the art is in place.

Voila! You are ready to put your base onto the key ring!

This is an easy craft to do with groups, classrooms, troops or meetings as there are no liquid sealers or drying times involved. Great for quick holiday gifts, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or Grandparent’s Day! Christmas stocking stuffers – use last year’s Christmas photo or this year’s school pictures or pictures from Facebook or Instagram posts.

Here are just a few ideas – you could also put in a phrase (Keep calm and ….) or scrapbook or origami paper, or a monogram. We’ve collected a page on Pinterest of printable monograms if you go that route – see eCrafty’s Printable Monograms board on Pinterest here.

For an easy fashion statement bracelet, Memory Wire from eCrafty.com is the way to go.  Look what Cheryl dreamed up recently! Here are two Memory Wire bracelets that are sure to garner admirers!

DIY Memory Wire Beaded Cuff Bracelet from eCrafty.com

Cheryl used our Memory Wire, along with Glass Pearls and Seed Beads, and Dragonfly Charms from eCrafty.com for this pretty beaded cuff bracelet.

How to make it:

Cheryl cut the memory wire to the length she wanted.  You can have one or two coils, or a lot like her bracelet above.  Then she made a loop at one end of the wire.  She was now ready to string beads on the wire in a random pattern.  When she was done putting the beads on, she made another loop.  To this she added her bead dangles and dragonfly charm.

DIY Holiday Sparkle Earrings Recipe from eCrafty.com Design by Kim Noland

Supplies:

How to make them:

  1. Make the headpin dangle: Thread 1 spacer bead, 1 resin sparkle rhinestone bead, then another spacer bead onto the headpin.
  2. Form a wrapped loop at the top: With your round nosed pliers, form a wrapped loop at the top. With a little practice, this becomes second nature!
  3. Attach finished dangle to the ear wire: Open the bottom loop of your ear wire sideways, attach your beaded looped headpin, and then close the bottom of your ear wire again to complete.

Design resources: Here’s two easy beginner wire wrapped loop videos if you are new to making wrapped loops.

We are just getting started on the possibilities, color themes and occasions!
