Snowflake Pendant FastCast Resin Necklace DIY
Hi Resin Crafters, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft sharing the perfect snowflake pendant made with FastCast Resin. Whether it’s for hanging and decorating a Christmas tree or party favors for a Frozen Ice Princess themed birthday party, this fun Snowflake Pendant Necklace craft that takes less than 30 minutes to finish! FastCast resin is so fast, working time is under a minute and it hardens completely in about 10 minutes.
Snowflakes are especially unique. Every year around this time of year, I bust out paper and scissors and we cut paper snowflakes. They all turn out different and look great hanging on the front window or on the Christmas tree. Snowflakes are awesome, because they can stay up all through January too! These pendants are perfect for little icy princess or fabulous ornaments for the tree.
- FastCast Urethane Casting Resin
- Snowflake Silicone Molds
- Stirring Sticks, Mixing Cups, Disposable Gloves and Worksurface
Step 1: FastCast Resin
FastCast works so quickly that I didn’t have time to photograph the mixing steps. Read the directions thoroughly and follow them completely. Mix 1/2 ounce resin and 1/2 ounce hardener and stir for 30 seconds. Then pour into a second cup and use a second stick to stir again for 30 seconds. Then quickly and carefully pour the resin into the molds.
Step 2: Waiting
Step 3: Glitter
The resin dries a glossy white and looks fabulous on its own. I added some spray glitter, it’s actually hair glitter leftover from Halloween. Just put the snowflakes in a shallow cardboard box and spritz them outside with the glitter spray.
Step 4: Yarn
After the glitter dries, about 5 minutes, then add some blue yarn to the stars. Decide the length of the yarn according to the purpose, snowflake pendant necklaces about 26 inches and Christmas tree snowflake ornaments about 8 inches. Simply tie a larks head knot through the pendant loop, then tie off the two ends.
If using the snowflake pendants for Christmas tree ornaments, you can substitute the yarn for ornament hooks. Easy!
