I purchased a page of beautiful Day of the Dead sugar skulls images from Etsy the other day and have been wondering what to use them in. Then I thought it would be awesome to have a beautiful Day of the Dead inspired necklace to wear with my Catrina costume for Halloween. I have just started using Mod Podge, yes I know I can’t believe it took me so long! I am just loving Mod Podge so making a pendant using Mod Podge was easy and perfect to feed my new Mod Podge addiction.
- 1” Circle Pendant Trays
- 1” Clear Cabochon Round Glass Domes
- Silver necklace
- Mod Podge
- Small paintbrush
Step 1: Print your sugar skulls on cardstock (regular printer paper should work too). Place a glass cabochon over the area you’d like it to cover, then trace with a pencil and cut inside the pencil line.
Step 2: Place the paper in your frame and cover with the cabochon to make sure it lines up and looks the way you like.
Step 3: Brush a small amount of Mod Podge on the front part of your printed sugar skull.
Step 4: Put your glass cabochon on top of the paper and twist it around to coat well and make sure you have Mod Podge everywehre.
Step 5: Turn it around and while holding the paper in place use a ruler or a credit card to squeeze out any excess Mod Podge and to remove any air bubbles. You can also use a squeegee.
Step 6: Brush some Mod Podge on the framed place the cabochon with the sugar skull on the frame. Twist it around to ensure that the Mod Podge is spread all over.
Step 6: Thread chain through the bail or use a black ribbon to create a fancy chocker necklace.
