These little chalkboard necklaces are easy to make. There are a few different ways to make them depending on what kind of bezel or pendant you decide to use:

I made one of the necklaces using just black paper and a white gel pen.  A fine gel pen can result in tiny, tiny handwriting…..it might just take you a few tries before you get the perfect writing:

This photo pendant (from Joann’s) had a little template included and the clear plastic covering…..

…..so all I did was slip my “chalkboard” in and it was finished:

For the other designs I printed out tiny little chalkboards that I created in Photoshop (you can download the prints at the bottom of this post and resize them):

I cut out each print and glued it down to the bezel.

This round pendant (from Michael’s) included a clear plastic adhesive covering so once the glue dried, I attached the little dome and it was finished:

For this rectangular pendant (from Michael’s), after I attached my chalkboard print, I filled the bezel with Maybelline Wet Shine clear nail polish:

I poured a thin layer into the bezel and it leveled out by itself:

When it dried it was a perfectly clear, waterproof coating just like resin:

    I am SO glad you mentioned using the nail polish. I got some charms through a PYP grab box one time but they didn’t include any of the clear coverings so I didn’t know how to use them. Doing this for Mother’s Day. Thanks!

    I love these and want to make them for my grand daughters but when I download the scaled down version for the necklace, they cannot be saved or printed. Can anyone send me the document differently or tell me what I am doing wrong. So glad I found your site via Pintrest. Marie

    Just a warning about using the nail polish. It will yellow over time. If you don’t want to go with resin (it’s not as scary to use as it seems) there are dimensional blues available.
    I’m looking forward to trying this.

    I was wondering is there a way to get the chalkboard background in word so it’s easier to work with? Thanks so much, these are wonderful!

    I’ve been having problems getting the nail polish to dry without a lot of air bubbles… Any tips for getting it smooth and shiny without the bubble-age?
