5. Create the necklace by first laying out all your beaded chain. Begin by attaching a clasp to the chain with jumprings.

6. Attach a jumpring to the bail on the pendant. Attach the pendant to the chain.

7. Make beaded dangles by threading beads onto long headpins. Leaving enough room for making a loop, trim the end of the headpin. Using pliers, bend back the clipped end to form a loop, attach the loop to the pendant jumpring. Make as many as you wish. For this design we made 5 dangles.

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.

DIY Fabric Covered Sneakers with Mod Podge

Fabric Covered Sneakers with Mod Podge

Recently, Steve and I were shopping for summer blow-up pools at Walmart when my eye spotted this adorable fabric!  Ya know…I had to get a cut of this acid green floral fabric and I grabbed the plain shoes too. You really only need a few supplies to make a pair of custom sneakers and we promise it is easy!  For best results use cotton or cotton blend fabrics.  Fabrics with all over prints work well.

Wrap the fabric around shoe to determine the size needed.  I like to do this on the bias so you get a little stretch and it helps with the fabric smoothing over the rounded sections.

Apply Fabric Mod Podge to the shoes.  For this design we just added fabric to the toe and heel area.

Place the fabric onto the shoe.  Smooth the fabric.

Trim away the excess fabric from the toe area.
