I love washi tape. They just make everything instantly pretty. Washi Tape + Silhouette = You own artwork.

This is a great project and it will only take you an hour to complete. Check out our guest post at Lloralye on the detailed steps on how to make your own Washi Tape Silhouette Portrait.

Guest Post: DIY Calendar Pendant

I tend not to throw out calendars because of the high quality of the gorgeous images in them. It seems like a waste even when the years over. I have discovered that the back images are the perfect size for pendants. I make them with scrabble tiles but any size or shaped pendant would do.

Supplies:

calendar backs
scrabble tiles
glue (I used mod podge and tacky glue but most clear, strong glues should work)
bails
diamond glaze

1. Hold your tile firmly to the page and cut around it. You can also make a template with a square you don’t want to use if you find it easier to cut holding paper to paper.

2. Brush an even coat of glue (mod podge) over the tile and secure the paper over it.

3. Glue (tacky glue) the bail onto the back of the pendant. Hold for a few minutes to make sure it sets properly.

4. Evenly spread diamond glaze over the top for a great glossy finish! I let it set for about a day to make sure the glaze is no longer tacky but it seems to be dry within a few hours.

Enjoy! xoxo Lorelai
