#Monster High Pendant Tutorial

OK, I don't know shit about creating a tutorial. I suck at taking photos and usually remember after I start something that Bloggers are only as good as their photos and words. My husband always says, "bloggers are never without their cameras" yet, I jump in like I do everything else in my life and fail to capture all the important things.

SO...with that said, here is my Monster High Pendant Tutorial...

We received a box of crafts, toys, jewelry and miscellaneous items during a friends move.  She usually calls me over and sends me home with boxes and bags of things like clothes, household goods, books and stuff that she and the kids no longer want.  In one of the boxes I found a bag of Rummikub pieces. Never heard of it and had no idea what I was going to do with it but held onto it.


Light bulb moment! I gathered my supplies not knowing if it was going to work but...eureka I did!

Rummikub Pieces
Newspaper
Tacky Glue
X-Acto Knife
Paint Brush
Glitter
Stickers, pictures, whatever
Foam Sheets
High Gloss Clear Spray Paint



Cut the foam to fit the base like the one above or the one below.


Glue foam to both sides of the Rummikub.


Put glue all around the Rummikub sandwich and dip into glitter

We made lots of them....couldn't stop...addictive...send help!

Next we added some stickers


Glued a bail to the back, added the high gloss clear spray paint and........


Wah La

These were our first twooooo and Goddess loves them. We made some for her friends at school and plan on making many more. We even did some magnets for Halloween. Fun and easy and we had everything in our supplies. Isn't that the best kind of craft?

Congrats on remembering the camera ~ The pics are great! I need pics to help guide me on these kinds of projects, well most all projects. I just love this way of re-purposing the tiles. They turned out great! But I still want to know what a Rummikub is. LOL!

I would have never thought of making that with the supplies you had. My step-mom and my aunt would have made something very crafty with them.

I always admire crafty people. I am craft challenged. My grandchildren would love these necklaces.
