I told you about my obsession with Happy Hour Projects recently, remember? One of her map necklaces is what inspired this project!

Mine didn’t turn out quite as awesome as the original, so be sure to check it out, too! :)

For this project, you will need:

— pendant trays (buy here)
— epoxy or glass domes (buy here)
— 1″ circle cutter (buy here)
— scrapbook paper, dictionary pages, or photos
— glue (the kind that dries clear)
— chain necklace

Gather your supplies, and relax because these necklaces are super easy to make. I made a lucky necklace today since it’s so close to St. Patrick’s Day, but I’m also making a red white and blue one for Independence Day. The possibilities with these things are endless because they’re 100% personalized… by you!

Cut the circle out and glue it onto the pendant tray, then add some glue to the bottom of the dome and attach. You can use any type of glue that dries clear. You can even use mod podge. Or if you purchase the domes from the link above, they’re already sticky so you can skip that step!

I like shopping at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby for my scrapbooking paper, but it’s also fun to use maps or dictionary pages!

Sapphire loves her “lucky necklace” and plans on wearing it to school! So far, it’s been really durable.

    I have been looking for a tutorial like this. Thanks so much! I love how you gave us links to purchase the supplies too. Nell’s shop is quite impressive too!

  2. Susan says:

    This is something, that would be nice to make. Something I could do myself, and it is such a pretty pendant.

  3. Anne says:

    Very cute! I have a Michaels gift card, I think will buy some supplies and try this!

    Those are cute I might have to try and make some Disney Necklaces…

  6. Elaine Lund says:

    Thank you for this tutorial! I’m going to add it to my “crafts to do” list. Of course I won’t be able to just make a few….

  7. Stacy says:

    I wanted to make these with a large group. I noticed your link for the pendants was for 1-1/2 inch pendants but you say to use a 1 inch circle cutter. Is that correct? I just wanted to make sure they weren’t supposed to be the same before I ordered a 1-inch cutter. Thanks for the tutorial!

      If you can find both in the same size, that works best!
