DIY Recycled Necklace Pillsbury Style

To celebrate Earth day, I deiced to make a necklace out of mostly recycled materials. I happen to love Pillsbury products, and noticed their emblem was the perfect 1 inch circle to fill a bottle cap. I accessorized my foodie necklace with a fork charm that I snipped the loop off of. The bail on the back is a "made with love" charm perfect for my Pillsbury theme.

Materials And Supplies Used:

Bottle Cap
Glossy Accents
Made With Love Charm
Large Jump Loop
Ribbon Necklace
Glue Stick
Jewelers Glue E-6000
1 inch circle paper punch
Image (In this case the Pillsbury logo from a Pillsbury pie crust box)
Fork Charm
Needle Nose Jewelry Pliers


Using  a 1 inch circle punch, or scissors, if you have a steady hand, cut out your desired 1 inch circular image. Using a glue stick, attach it to the bottom inside of your bottle cap and let dry. Using wire cutters, clip off the loop  from your fork charm, or any other charm you want to use. Lay the charm on top of your image where you would like it to stay. Pour Glossy Accents over the top of charm and image, filling with clear gel until the sides of bottle cap are reached. Use a needle to remove any unwanted bubbles in Glossy Accents that may form. Cover pedant while it dries to avoid dust, and let dry over night or until gel becomes completely clear and hard. Glue "made with love" charm or bail onto the back side of your bottle cap with E-6000 glue. Let dry for 1 to 2 days. Attach a large jump loop to charm loop, and string on necklace.

Well that's what I have been up to, what about you? Come share at our weekly Anything Goes linky.
