DIY Glitter Pendant

DIY Glitter Pendant via Make Something MondaysI have so much glitter nail polish left over from my teenage years. I keep thinking, what am I going to do with all of this? Slowly, but surely, I am figuring it out! This week for my Make Something Mondays, I am using my glitter nail polish to make a DIY glitter pendant necklace. It is quick and easy and I think you will like it.

materials needed to make diy glitter pendantThings You Will Need:
Glass domes
Silver pendant

Solid color nail polish

*I forgot to show the diamond glaze in the image above! You could use super glue if you don’t have any.

Follow the links about to the glass dome and pendant trays to get yours at the same Etsy shop I got mine.

Start off with a light clear coat on the back side of the glass dome. Make sure it is completely dry before moving on to the next step.

Add a small drop of Diamond Glaze to the pendant tray and quickly put the glass orb inside. Push down on the orb so that the glue spreads out from the center. Again, let it dry.
