Chalkboard Pendant

 Make a Chalkboard Pendant
 
 
Super easy to make and a cute way to wear your own message.  These pendants use the wooden tiles available in the shop, backed by a pendant tray and simply hung from a chain.



Here's how we did it.  Gather your supplies - we used:
25mm round wooden tiles,
25mm pendant trays,
black chalkboard paint & paintbrush,
E6000 glue,
and of course, chalk!


This stuff is thick and gooey and quite smelly - make sure you cover all surfaces well!
 
 

Simply cover your tiles with a good few coats of the paint.  Chalkboard paint generally covers well but a few coats will show less of the grain through. 


When it is completely dry, you can glue it to your choice of tray - here we used a round silver plated tray.  E6000 glue is ideal for this as it will hold fast, or you can use any superglue type of adhesive that you may have at home.

When that is dry, you can hang it from your favourite chain.  We added a little ribbon and a little felt heart rubber to this one.  Finally, use a sharpened chalk (use sandpaper to get a fine point on your chalk) to draw your message, or use a chalk pen, package simply in a cellophane bag with a teeny bit of chalk and give freely!
