Make it for Mom: Altered Photo Pendant

Make it for Mom: Altered Photo Pendant

This project was designed for Plaid using Mod Podge Gloss and Mod Podge Glitter. The photo is of my Aunt Ellen.

Artistrywear – Glass Pendant #94848
Mod Podge – gloss
Mod Podge – gold glitter
Foam Paintbrush
Papers & Photos to Mod Podge
Small Silk Flowers
Gem Glue
Large Jump Ring
2 Pliers – chain nosed


1. Resize the photo if necessary so that it will fit on the large white glass pendant on a color copier. Trim the photo to a circle shape. Coat the back of the photo with Mod Podge and place it onto the glass pendant. Top coat with a layer of Mod Podge. Use your fingers to press out any air bubbles.

2. Add additional details: Attach small cut out words or other papers with Mod Podge. Glue a small silk flower to the hair. Glue rhinestones around the edge of the design.

3. Add glittery highlights: Paint a small amount of glitter Mod Podge to the top of the design. I like to frame the face with the glitter.

4. Attach a large jump ring using chain nosed pliers to the pendant. Attach the pendant to a necklace. The pendant can be switched from necklace to necklace depending on the outfit you are wearing.
