It’s no secret, I’ve been lovin’ chalkboard paint for a while now! I’ve been wanting to try out chalkboard paint on a locket. However, yesterday I realized that I had some extra resin cameo settings from a while back, so I decided to go ahead and try it out. I have to say i’m really pleased with the results! I think they are adorable, and the best thing is, they are fun and super easy to make!
Here’s what you need:
*Resin Cameo Settings ( I bought mine on Etsy here)
*Ribbon or Chain
*Chalk or Chalk Pen
Step 1: Paint- Make sure your settings are clean and then follow the directions on the jar or your paint. It is usually two to three coats, letting them dry for an hour in between.
Step 2: Glue bails- Once the paint is good and dry and looking good you are ready to glue your bails. Put a dab of E6000 at the top of the setting on the back in the center. Then, carefully push the bail into the glue dot centering as you push it down. Let dry.
Step 3: Finish- Once your glue is good and set and dry add your chain and a clasp or ribbon.
Step 4: Personalize- With your chalk or chalk pen, personalize your necklace with your initials, a tiny message, or a doodle.
This craft is so easy. It does take a lot of drying time, but other than that, it couldn’t get simpler. You could make a big ol’ batch of them in really no time at all, and what a cute gift they’d make! So go ahead, make one for each of your favorite gals, big and small, and of course one , or ten, for yourself as well. A girl’s gotta accessorize! Hope you all enjoy!
