Mother's day is coming up and I wanted to get all the moms in our family some of those super cute silver photo necklaces. If you order them online through some of the big photo publishing sites, they can be very pricey. BUT...here is how you can make your own on the cheap(er)!
Glossy Mod Podge
Small paint brush
Resize your photo to fit your charm. My charm is 1" X 1" so I resized my photo to that in Photoshop. If you don't have Photoshop you can use Word or even PowerPoint to resize. If you do have photoshop, make sure you go over to Coffee and Tea Photography Blog. Rita is awesome and has amazing actions and presets for PS and PSE and they are COMPLETELY FREE!! I love her Vivid Action and it is what I used on my photo.
Make sure to wipe the Mod Podge off the edges of the pendant before it dries.
Apply a few coats of the Podge and you are done. Chain your pendant and print a cute little gift box to wrap it in!
I would string my own beads for this, but I don't seem to have the skill. I have tried and tried to no avail. If someone has any helpful hints for those of us who are bead challenged, please pass them along.
Isn't my little model a cutie? That is my big girl, Ryleigh. Just as sweet as she is cute!
I would love to hear from you!
