Good Luck Pendant
Level of difficulty: Intermediate


What You’ll Need:

Let’s Do This!


Step 1:

Spray paint dowel gold.


Step 2:

Cut four strips of the burlap ribbon at equal lengths (~6 inches.) Cut a triangle shape out of the bottom to create a double-pointed end.


Step 3:

Mix green and black paint to get a darker green. Add a little bit of water to create a wash and paint each piece of burlap ribbon with the green paint wash. Let dry.


Step 4:

Find the letter stencils to spell "LUCK" and place one stencil onto each burlap piece. Center each letter vertically on the burlap strip so your word will be aligned once finished. Hold stencils in place while painting each letter with white paint. Remove stencils and outline each letter with white puffy paint to create a clean edge. Let Dry.


Step 5:

Using tacky glue, paint a thin line on each diagonal edge at the bottom. Top with gold glitter. Let Dry.


Step 6:

Position the burlap pieces in the correct order with even spacing between. Hot glue the top edge of each onto the wooden dowel.


Step 7:

Hot glue the jute onto the two edges of the dowel, making sure to leave enough for the piece to hang nicely.


Step 8:

Hot glue three jingle bells to the wooden dowel on both the left and right side of the burlap ribbons.
