Easy!!! Pendant necklace made from Washer

Easy!!! Pendant necklace made from a Washer
Our last official Girl Scout meeting was this week. We decided to make necklaces. I stopped at the home improvement store and picked up some washers and green twine (My troop is Juniors). We used a decoupage technique to make the plain old washers into amazing pendants. You can Mod Podge CS11202 Original 16-Ounce Glue, Gloss Finish
from amazon. It does work better than the glue and water. The sheen is amazing with the Mod Podge!

Here is how we did it:
Supplies:
Ball of twine
Washer (any size for the pendant you want)
Mod Podge (you can just water down a little glue instead)
Scissors
Sponge brush
Scrapbooking paper (or any paper)

Directions:

Put your finger in the hole and gently twist and remove your finger. This should leave a clean edge.

Fold around the outside edge now and trim any excess that prevents the paper from laying smooth. You want it to cover the side of the washer.
