Princess Necklaces

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Saturday, August 20, 2011
Hi there!  Another "Non-Papercraft" post today!

I found these SUPER CUTE tiny little bottle caps at the Lobby of Hobby the other day and thought it would be really cute to make a necklace set for Emily.  They were so small, though, that I really had to do some looking to find pictures small enough to put in them!  Emily wanted princesses, so we found some stickers, cut out the heads with a circle punch (now Emily has 6 headless princess stickers to play with!  LOL!!)  and stuck the stickers into the bottle caps.  We ran a bead of Dazzling Diamond Stickles around the edge of the sticker and let that dry... overnight.

This is so hard on poor Emily, who is such an instant gratification kind of gal!!

The next day, when the Stickles were dry, we filled each little bottle cap with that Crystal Laquer/Glossy Glaze stuff and again, set them aside to dry... overnight.

Emily's about in hysterics by this point!!  I guess it's a good thing we didn't do one bottle cap at a time!

Finally, the charms are ALL DONE!  At the same time I bought the bottle caps, I picked up a simple chain for her to wear them on, so I grabbed that and told Emily that her necklace was ready!  

Here is the finished product!  Emily loves it!  She loves being able to change out the charms and has already worn Sleeping Beauty and Ariel!  



I'll have to go pick up another pack of bottle caps and keep an eye out for more tiny pictures to put in them!  My Mom suggested pictures of the family, I think that's a good idea, too!

I'm linking this project up to the Weekend Wrap Up Party at Tatertots and Jello
