Vintage Photo Pendant

Vintage Photo Pendant

You don't have to travel back in time to create this vintage-inspired project. Vintage craft ideas can incorporate modern materials with old school ideas. Create your own Vintage Photo Pendant from Candace Jedrowicz and wear it with any outfit. It's a great keepsake and can be given as a gift for a birthday or holiday.

Vintage Photo Pendant


  • Aleene’s Decoupage – glossy
  • Aleene’s Super Gel
  • Glass blob
  • Wire – no smaller than 20 gauge
  • Printed and downsized photo – print on regular printer paper
  • Paint brush
  • Round nose pliers


  1. Place the glass blob over the photo and trace around it.
  2. Cut the photo out.
  3. Brush Aleene’s Decoupage Glossy on the back of the glass blob.
  4. Position the photo and press into the glue.
  5. Immediately brush Decoupage on the back of the photo.  Allow to dry.
  6. Cut 6″ of wire, wrap the center around a pencil, small glue stick, or what ever you have around that would make a large enough loop to put a chain through.  Wrap twice.
  7. Wrap one tail of the wire into a spiral, this will glue onto the back of the glass.
  8. Bend the other tail in a meander ending in a small spiral.  This will glue to the front of the glass, so be sure that your wire won’t cover up anything important.
  9. Use a small amount of Super Gel on the wire on any parts of the wire that will lay against the glass.  Hold in place for a minute, or until the bail stays in place.
