I´ve made these little charms for a few friends now and they´re really popular, so I thought I´d write a post about how easy it is do make something cheap, cute and appreciated.
It´s very easy, in case you were wondering.
What you need is:
- a paintbrush
- paint (acrylic)
- little transparent glass nuggets/pebbles, used for home decoration and cut flowers. They have to be flat on one side (so not marbles)
- some base material – tissue paper, construction paper, felt…anything really.
- glue (UHU is good)
- time (for the paint to dry)
After the paint has completely dried, you can add a tiny spot of glue and then gently stick on a previously cut base material, pressing but not letting it slide (so the paint doesn´t accidentally slip off the glass). This is more for the protection of the paint than anything else.
So, really easy, wasn´t it?
If you do make some of these, let me know in the comments if you have any advice or feedback..or photos!
