Classy Glassy Halloween Pendants

9 Oct

Materials:

Large Glass Beads

Smaller clear and black beads

StazOn Black Ink Pad

Headpin

Glaze (We used Glassy Accents.)

Foam Stamps (We purchased ours at Dollar General.)

 Directions:

1. Select a foam stamp and place it in StazOn ink.

2. Gently but firmly apply stamp to bead and allow to dry.

3. Use Glaze to cover inked area and allow to dry.

4. Thread small bead onto head pin, add stamped bead, and another small bead.

5. Create a loop in headpin.

The glaze gives the ink a raised look.

Tips:

StazOn ink pads have permanent ink, so they will dry beautifully on glass.  But the stamps will wipe off! So you must coat the ink with something. Glassy Accents or similar products have a glass-like sheen. If you coat just the inked areas it will look like raised glass. Very Cool.

We were surprised by how well the foam stamps worked. We tried our rubber ones, but they didn’t conform to curves in the glass as well as the foam stamps did.

If you do not know how to create a loop in a headpin, this site gives excellent advice and photos!

    MC wants to have a Halloween costume party for her birthday this year. We were talking about crafts to do….I think this will be perfect, if only her mother can master the necessary skills.

      You can do these, and they turn out so pretty. We’ll be posting at least two more Halloween crafts soon!
