Distressed Wooden Pendant Necklace

By: Consumer Crafts

Want to learn how to make a cool wooden pendant necklace? This Distressed Wooden Pendant Necklace tutorial from Consumer Crafts will show you how to make a cute, simple and earthy pendant that will make all your friends jealous.

Distressed Wooden Owl Pendant

 

Materials:

  • Boho Collection™ 2 inch wood owl focal piece in brown (GG-011) or 1.25 inch in natural (GG-012)
  • Boho Collection™ antique copper chain: 18 inch alternating link (GG-033), 24 inch round link (GG-036) or 24 inch oval link (GG-035)
  • Darice® antique copper findings kit 1972-08CP
  • Craft paint or stain, if desired
  • Jump ring finger tool 1964-39
  • Boho Collection battery powered sanding tool GG-042

Instructions:

  1. Paint natural wood owl focal piece in desired color (we used brown) and allow to dry.

  2. Sand owl to give it a “distressed” look, using the Darice® sanding tool. Sanding on edges and in other places that would normally see wear and tear over the course of time will give you the most natural distressed look. Note: This versatile tool can be used for antiquing jewelry pieces, wood of all kinds, metal and even scrapbooking pages.

  3. Attach to copper chain using a copper jump ring and pliers, and you’re all set!

Note: If you want to kick the necklace up a notch, the focal pendant can be customized by using different paint colors in the first step, or by repeating the painting and sanding steps with a second color. You can even dress up the finished necklace with coordinating bead drops and elements, or further embellish the wood pendant after sanding if desired.
