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:
