Make Your Own Hand-Stamped Pendant
Supplies Needed for Christmas Washer Pendants
- Metal Washers & 24 inch ball chain (one of each per pendant)
- Round Bead Charm (mine is 6mm)
- Metal Alphabet Hand-Stamps/Punches (I found a 36 piece set at Michaels. Letter-size 6mm.)
- Black Sharpie Marker
How to Make Stamped Washer PendantsStart by stamping your washer. (Place your washer on a hard surface, like concrete. I usually go outside to our back porch which has a concrete floor.) Place the J to the left of the washer opening and your Y to the right. Use your sharpie to fill in the letters to make them more visible and "age" them a little. Wipe away any excess ink. (Check out The 36th Avenue blog's pendant tutorial.)
Next, slide the bead to the center of the ball-chain. Close the clasp. Pull the bead and chain through the center of the washer from back to front. Feed the clasp-end of the ball-chain up through the loop creating a slip-knot around the washer.
Pull tight and center the bead. That's all there is to it.
If you're giving this as a gift, make it extra special by including a copy of LandeeSeeLandeeDo's Sunday Encouragement: Grateful printable. Put it in a small frame or use a copy to adorn a plain gift bag.
