Monogram Initial Resin Pendant Necklace DIY
Hi resin crafters, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft with an especially cute monogram initial necklace. This particularly adorable pendant necklace is the perfect handmade gift. Surprisingly, it’s a quick DIY too! Once you see how easy it is, you’ll want to make one for everyone on your list.
Floral Scrapbook Paper (cut into circle to fit inside bezel)
Black Vinyl Initial (use Monogram KK Font for free)
1 inch Bezel
26 inch Chain
Begin by using a electronic cutting machine to cut out the initial. Then weed the excess vinyl away.
Next paint some Ultra Seal inside the bezel.
Then place the initial paper into the bezel and cover the paper with Ultra Seal.
Begin by mixing 1 part resin with 1 part hardener and stir with stick for 2 minutes. Straightaway pour the resin into a second mixing cup and use a new stirring stick to stir for another minute.
Set the bezel on a surface to keep the pendant flat while the resin cures. Gently pour the mixed resin into the bezel until it forms a little surface tension and rises above the edges of the bezel. After 20 minutes, gently heat the top of the resin with a mini torch to pop any bubbles that have formed. Then let the resin cure overnight.
Next day use some jewelry pliers to hook on a 26 inch chain to the pendant.
Now the monogram initial necklace is ready to wear or give as a uniquely elegant handmade gift.
This works especially well for a quick gift, since apart from the resin curing, it takes less than 30 minutes to make it. Share and Pin for later.
