Gift A Beautiful Beaded Pendant

My project today is a sweet little pendant necklace that comes together pretty quickly and makes a great gift.

Don’t be daunted by the idea of sewing on the beads! It’s true that sewing beads can be a little fiddly because of their tiny size, but once you get the hang of it, it’s a great beginner project for jewelry making.

Here’s what you need to make this little beaded pendant necklace:

Put your scrap of fabric inside your embroidery hoop for sewing and outline the inside circle of the mini embroidery hoop with a pencil onto your fabric. Using the little cameo from the 28 Lilac Lane set, use craft glue to glue this to the center of the circle you just outlined. Let dry completely before moving on.

After your cameo is completely dry and securely attached to your beaded pendant, take a small plate (or use the lid of the Tea Time set) to pull out the beads. From your divisible embroidery floss, pull out one thread strand and thread your needle, making sure to leave a knot in the end. Sew a row of the larger green beads around the edge of the little cameo. Then repeat with the gold beads and then the blue beads.

To finish your beaded pendant, position the mini hoop on your design and draw a cutting line approximately 1/2 inch around the hoop. Cut it out. Place the cut design on the center plate. Then place the mini hoop on top and push it down to secure it. Flip it over and using a hot glue gun, place the glue around the inner edge. Push the fabric down in a circular motion. Add glue to the backing piece on the inner edge. Position it on the back of the hoop with the notch top and center.

You can either add a jump ring to your beaded pendant for your necklace chain to go through or thread the chain through the bolt in the center of the hoop.

Voila! You have a sweet little beaded pendant necklace ready to wear on a fun night out or to gift to a friend!

Learn How to Make a Candy Corn Bracelet with Buttons!

Hi everybody! It’s Anaya from the Buttons Galore & More Design Team. Halloween is fast approaching and I must confess, I’m excited.

Supplies Needed for Making Candy Corn Bracelet:

How to Make a Candy Corn Bracelet:

Start your candy corn bracelet by separating the buttons by color and size. You will need to select buttons of a similar size to stack and create little button candy corn charms for your bracelet. Cut a 3-4″ length of wire and gently fold into a ‘U’ shape. Stack buttons with yellow on the bottom, orange in the middle, and white on top. Push the buttons together and twist one end of wire tightly around the other. Trim the excess wire and create a loop using round nose pliers.

Repeat this step a until you have enough to fill your your chain. My bracelet is 7″ and I have attached a button charm to every other link.

After filling the candy corn bracelet with button charms, gather your selection of beads. I am using 10mm yellow, orange, and white glass pearls along with larger clear and white glass beads. Using headpins, add 2-3 beads to each of the remaining empty links in the chain.

Once the bracelet is as full as you’d like, place a jump ring on each end of the chain. Attach the toggle clasps to the jump rings and your candy corn bracelet is complete!

Create Fall Wood Coaster Wall Decor with 28 Lilac Lane

If you’re like me, you just can’t wait for the temperatures to drop. Now is the perfect time to get started on some fun and simple projects for fall. Today, I’m going to show you how to use the Autumn Afternoon embellishment kit by 28 Lilac Lane to create an awesome fall wood coaster wall decor piece for your home.

Instructions to create Fall Wood Coaster Wall Decor:

The first thing you need for this project is a wood surface. I’m using a 4 1/2″ round wood coaster that is about 1/2″ thick. Next, you will need to find a stamp with a word or phrase that expresses the perfect sentiment. I have selected a “smile” stamp. Smiles are always in season! You can of course go with something specifically related to fall. Most importantly, ensure that anything you choose will fit nicely onto your coaster.

I have drilled a hole in the top in order to attach a string, but you may be able to find one that is pre-drilled for crafting. On a scrap piece of duck cloth I have stamped the word “smile” in black ink and then glued the fabric to the coaster’s surface. Then I used a clear-drying glue to begin adding pearls and sequins.

Don’t forget to leave room for buttons! Using a glue gun, I arranged the buttons closely together near the bottom edge and stack a few for extra dimension.

The kit includes leaf and feather pendants in bronze that look great hanging and add just the right touch for the season. I looped the cord through the wood coaster and each pendant. I used a 7″ length of hemp cord. After I attached the pendants, I just tied a knot in the cord to finish it off.

For the last step, I applied a few seed beads using the tiniest dab of glue. Using tweezers will assist in applying the beads exactly where you want them. As we all know, glue can at times get messy!
