Salt Dough Pendants

Hey guys!

Last year, I made these little pendants out of salt dough:

I added one-word greetings using alphabet stamps and an ink pad.

They found their purpose as embellishments for gifts...TADA!

I made a few more pendants. But instead of using tinted salt dough, I painted them with several coats of acrylic paint.  

The stark black reminds me of a chalkboard, a blank slate, ready to be written on.

Here's how I turned them from blah...

...to TADA!

They are now keychains that I can give as tokens for the coming holidays.

I wrote the names with acrylic paint and a fine brush and let it dry for several minutes. 

I added jump rings to each pendant and attached the findings with the help of some pliers:

I am proud of my handmade and personalized presents, ready to be given away...TADA!

  1. You're right, the black disks do look like little chalkboards. Good idea to use the white paint for names!
