The other day I decided to get on the bandwagon and make myself some washer necklaces. I’m sure you’ve seen them around. I’ve seen so many versions of these but never actually read any tutorials so I made up a way that worked for me.
Bobby pin (or something to spread with)
Hemp or some kind of string
Step 1: Trace the washer on the paper, cut it out and trim it until it fits perfectly. To make the hole in the center I just pushed the pencil through the paper.
Step 2: Modge podge the back of the paper, put it in place and let it dry. Once the back is dry, modge podge the top of the paper and let that dry as well. I also modge podged the back where the paper was pushed through the hole.
Step 3: Cover the front in Dimensional Magic. It took a few tries to figure it out. I found what worked best for me was putting it toward the center and then spreading it with a bobby pin. Be careful to let it dry very well.
Step 4: Loop hemp or string around the washer and tie it so it can be adjusted.
I wore one of my new washer pendants to school today. Sorry for the slanted, wet-haired, head chopped off picture but I took it before school so that's as good as it gets. I think the pendant looked nice with the outfit and made me look a little more put together. For less than $1, I'd say that's pretty good.
