Easy DIY Jewelry Pendants

These are so simple to make. Just round up some of your favorite supplies: paper, glitter, beads, sequins, or whatever you like! Keep it really simple by making several pendants with glitter paper. They are cute without being too gaudy, making them perfectly suitable for handmade gifts.

Supplies & Tools:

  • Pendants & chains
  • Dimensional Magic glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Pin
  • Embellishments: decorative paper, beads, rhinestones, etc.


  1. Using the template from the pendant package as a guide, cut out desired paper.
  2. Apply a layer of glue on the base of the pendant.
  3. Lay the paper in the pendant, and press down gently.
  4. Apply another layer of glue.
  5. Optional: add beads or rhinestones and then add more glue to coat the beads.
  6. Use a pin to pop any bubbles.
  7. Allow to dry, per the glue’s instructions, about 24 hours. I set my pendants on a piece of cardboard, so that the pendant would dry flat. Notice the pendant hanger is hanging off the side of the cardboard.

Ideas from the elves:

  • Add clear beads to look like ice.
