I think its pretty obvious I’m a DIY gift giver. I’ve done DIY Mother’s Necklaces, DIY Gin Kits, DIY Nail Polish, and even done a few collections of DIY gifts for men, and 15 MORE DIY Gifts for men. Why? Because I think there is something special about a hand made gift.

Now that my son is heading into his first Christmas, I want to make sure that his Grandmas receive gifts from him. Except…he’s not exactly into wire wrapping jewelry. On a good day I can get him to focus for about 30 seconds before he is bouncing off to practice his latest trick – standing up. (Did I mention he’s growing up WAY too fast!?)

But I’ve found a work around. This beautiful necklace is elegant and pretty on its own, but is made so much more special knowing that my son did the artwork! This method is for babies, but if you have a toddler who likes to draw or paint, you could easily use that too!

What You Need:

How To Make It:

  1. Start by putting a few squirts of paint on small piece of your paper (4 x 4 inches or so). Put the paper in your tupperware and add the coins/marbles/beads. Essentially we’re making a baby rattle. Except when your baby rattles it, they will be moving paint around the paper – making art!
  2. Let the kiddo have at it. Then remove the paper and let dry.Easy DIY Baby Art Pendants. A great craft gift idea for grandmas, moms, teachers and more! Tutorial included. | saynotsweetanne.com
  3. Select a section of your paper for the pendant. Cut it out so that it is easy to work with. Glue the paper to the back side of your domino.

  4. When dry, cut out the excess paper. You won’t be able to cut close enough to make a smooth finish. That’s okay, use a bit of sandpaper or a nail file to gently sand off the excess paper.

  5. Use the permanent glue to glue your bail onto the domino. Allow to dry completely.

  6. Make sure to remove any dust and then coat your pendant with Dimensional magic. It goes on milky but dries clear. Allow at least 24 hours to cure. (NOTE: I got a crackle effect on one of my pendants by using Tim Holtz Crackle Paint)
