Primary Technique: Green Crafting

Occasion/Theme: Winter

Beginner

Materials:

  • Recycled lids (preferably plain and metallic in color)
  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
  • Brush
  • Rhinestones
  • Power drill
  • Ribbon

Instructions:

  1. Drill a very small hole into the edges of each canning lid with your power drill.
     
  2. Brush a thick layer of Mod Podge onto the inside area of the lid. Start placing your rhinestones down into the glue. Continue to fill in with more stones and use more glue as you fill in the gaps. It is OK to overlap the pieces with each other. Some of the stones may flip upside down . . . but don’t worry if they do! The mirrored bottoms of the gems will add more shine and texture to your ornament. Once the inside of the lid is completely covered with gems, allow the glue to dry.


     
  3. Take your bottle of Dimensional Magic and carefully pour the material in and around the gemstones until the jewels are almost covered in the glue. Allow the DM to dry overnight. When the thick glue is dry, it will be crystal clear! It will look like your gems are embedded in resin.
     
  4. Thread a length of thin ribbon through the pre-drill holes and tie the ends to create a ribbon loop. Hang your pretty, recycled holiday ornament on your tree this year!
