St Patrick’s Day ‘Lucky Charm’ Necklace

'Hi-diddly-dee' they're after me lucky charms! All the leprechauns will want these beautiful pendant charms!
  • Step 1Take the glass stone from the pendant setting and use a pencil to trace around it onto a piece of cover paper. Draw as many circle templates as you have pendants. Draw some fun St Patrick’s Day themed designs onto each of the circles. These will be your ‘Lucky Charms’.
  • Step 2Decorate your designs using coloured pencils and markers. You can even add a touch of sparkle with some glitter as we did! Allow to dry if needed.
  • Step 3Cut out each of your designs. Adult supervision is recommended when using scissors. Use PVA glue to stick the design into the bottom of the silver pendant setting. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4Take a glass stone and apply a thin coat of PVA glue to the flat side. Press this firmly into the pendant setting so it sits over your design. Apply a good amount of pressure to push out any bubbles, then wipe away any excess glue from the edges of the pendant. Allow to dry.
  • Step 5Cut 3 lengths of spaghetti string long enough to hang around your neck. Hold the 3 strands together and use pliers to press a leather end onto one end, keeping the spaghetti strings together. Begin to plait the strands together all the way to the other end, then use pliers to press on another leather end to hold it all in place. Thread your pendant onto the spaghetti string.
  • Step 6Add a jump ring and clasp to one leather end and a singular jump ring to the other end. You can now fasten your necklace. Repeat this process to create necklaces for all of your pendants.
  • Step 7Wear your ‘Lucky Charm’ necklace as you celebrate St Patrick’s Day!
