Call me silly but I adore seasonal jewelry and clothes.  I hoard X-mas sox and Halloween tees and make jewelry that fits with the holiday.  Behind the scenes, we are already working on a St. Pats Party Necklace.  Since it is November…. I’ll get on with the Owl necklace and earrings.  I promise this is a super easy project!  We used  Podgeable shapes and Mod Podge because they are perfect for whipping up seasonal themed jewelry!

Attach a jumpring to the pendant. Thread onto a leather cord.  For the earring, attach earring findings with jump-rings to the small square podgeable shapes.

Tip: While the Dimensional Magic is drying don’t move the pendant around or you might get air bubbles. If you do get an air bubble, use a sewing pin to pop it.

Enjoy!

HOW TO:

1. Begin by tracing the rectangle Podgeable shape onto the spiderweb paper. Coat the top of the Podgeable shape and the back of paper with Mod Podge. Position the paper onto the Podgebale shape and smooth any air bubbles with your finger. Top-coat with more Mod Podge to seal it.

2. Make a Mod Melt Owl by heating a Mod Melt Stick in a mini HIGH TEMP glue gun, squeeze the melt into the owl mold. Allow to cool 10 min and then remove. Paint the owl with orange paint and the branch with black paint. Allow to dry. Glue gems to the Mod Melt owl.

3. Glue the owl to the center of the spider web Podgeable shape and rhinestones to the corners. Allow to dry.

4. Apply a thin coat of Dimensional Magic to the top of the Podgeable Shape.  Work around the owl and rhinestones.  If you get an air bubble, pop with a sewing pin.  Allow to dry in a cool and non-drafty place.  Don’t more the piece around until after it is dried.

5. Using pliers, attach a jumpring through the hole on the Podgeable shape. Thread a ballchain necklace through the jumpring.

That is it! Easy peasy!
