Cute Charm Necklaces - DIY

I saw this cute tutorial on Handmade Charlotte and it brought back a flood of memories of when I was a little girl making craft bracelets. Well, this is an update of what we used to do back in the day with some awesome new Mod Podge products. Follow along Rachel Faucett's tutorial as she lays everything out so clearly.

Tools and Supplies:

Mod Podge Mod Melts (in any color of your choosing)
Mod Podge Mod Melter
One or more Mod Podge Mod Moulds
Detail brushes
Pony beads
Wooden beads (an assortment of sizes and colors)
With your Mod Melter, fill your mould starting from the center and working your way out. Let cool for 10 minutes or until firm.
Attach a pony bead to the back of the Mod Melt charm while it’s still in the mould.
Once the bead is firmly in place, pop the charm out of the mould.
Next, select a variety of wooden beads to decorate. We chose to keep some of the wooden beads solid colored, while others, we added playful patterns to- you can add dots, lines, even arrows!
Measure your string and cut at desired length for the necklace. To create the tassel, wrap the string around your fingers several times and cut once you’ve achieved your desired thickness. Maintaining the overall shape of the loop, take string of the same color (or a coordinating one) and tie it around one end, leaving enough of the loop exposed to thread your necklace string through. Once you’ve wrapped your coordinating string around several times and secured it, clip the other end of the loop to free the tassel.
Lace the necklace string through the top of your tassel and then, crossing strings, thread through the back of your Mod Melt charm. Finally, add your painted wooden beads and tie at the end.

Form the spoons Put a lot of hard peppermint candies in a plastic bag. Then, use the food crusher or hammer to crush the candies into smaller pieces. Put the smaller pieces into the mold, as shown in the picture above. Make sure there are a lot of peppermint candies in the handle as this section will break easily if there is enough peppermint candy there. Melt the peppermint Melt the peppermint candy in the oven at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on the candy to make sure that it melts all the way, but doesn't bubble.

What Are The Ridiculous Reasons Why These Kids Are Crying?
If you've ever babysat, parented, or pretty much existed within the general vicinity of a child for more than two minutes, you probably know that babies cry for the most nonsensical reasons. So do parents using Snapchat, who take that 24/7 baby-documenting that social media moms and dads are notorious for to a whole new level. They take a picture of their kid crying, they caption it with exactly WHY they're crying, share the picture, and boom. Instant hilarity. This is why people get convinced that babies and drunk adults are the same. Hey, you've got to let them teethe somehow, right? To be fair, waiting for freshly baked things to cool down is pretty much the worst. If it's a single-digit AM number, I'd be like this too. Imagine all the possibilities if you COULD though. He's not REALLY bad. Just a little misunderstood, right? Cue that 'Game Of Thrones' chant: "Shame! Shame! Shame! Shame!" It's okay. She's going to be grateful she didn't when she's older. I'd probably collapse on the floor too. The freakin' PRESIDENT! Hey, it doesn't mean he can't be upset! I feel like a LOT of little girls think they can marry their dads. I know some grown men that would cry because of this too. I appreciate how easy it is to entertain kids. "Here's a tampon." I like that he's all ready with his little fork too. Okay, but this picture actually made me want a pet lobster. Go away, brother! You're ruining the ambiance! This girl just needs to grab control of her life. AND her fork for that matter. So have you been around a little one who cried for stupid reasons? Or maybe YOU were that little one? I know my dad always reminded me of the first time he shaved off his mustache. I cried for hours because he didn't look like my dad anymore! @VIPFreak2NE1 @YumiMiyazaki @TurtleyTurtles @AlexTalley @atmi @CelinaGonzalez @iixel @humairaa @LysetteMartinez @drummergirl691 @ZoilaObregon @AnimeFan4Evr @SarahRegulski @poeticandfunny @tokyo514 @Outcastname @RachelParker @FrankilliMambo @EasternShell @supbroscene @Baoyi @VeronicaArtino @YunBao @buddyesd @HandsomeBacon
오묘한 매력을 가진 갤러리 ‘샌드위치 apt.’ 그룹전 <사적인 움직임> 오픈
성수동 연무장길 필수 코스가 생겼다. 포토그래퍼 장덕화와 크레이티브 디렉터 오지영이 전시를 주축으로 다양한 프로젝트를 시도하는 갤러리 ‘샌드위치 apt.’를 오픈했다. 샌드위치 패널로 지은 가건물의 상태에서 영감을 얻어 이름 붙여진 ‘샌드위치 apt.’는 최근 SNS 핫플레이스로 급부상한 성수동 연무장길 초입에 나지막이 자리 잡고 있다. 참여 작가의 취향은 분명하나 특별한 색을 가진 작품을 담담히 소개하고자 하며, 작품들이 주는 흡입력이 관람하러 온 사람들과 자연스럽게 유대감을 형성될 수 있도록 기회를 제공해 주는 것이 ‘샌드위치 apt.’의 목적. 입구에서부터 느껴지는 아티스틱한 분위기와 갤러리 곳곳에 숨겨진 무심한 듯 쿨한 인테리어가 발걸음을 찾은 이들에게 잔잔한 재미를 선사한다. ‘샌드위치 apt.’가 선보이는 첫 전시, <사적인 움직임은>은 그룹전으로 ‘플롯(PLOT)’, ‘파라다이스(PARADISE)’의 박상호, ‘글라스 랜드스케이프(GLASS LANDSCAPE)’의 이수진 작가가 스타트를 끊었다. 먼저, 작가 박상호는 많은 시간을 현실과 비현실에 대해 인식하고 자문한다. 색과 패턴 그리고 수직과 수평의 구조적인 형태에 대한 고찰을 미디어아트와 구조물 등으로 풀어낸 ‘플롯’, ‘파라다이스’도 그렇다. 그중 작품 파라다이스는 하늘과 지평선 그림의 종이를 배경으로, 석양과 야자수가 있는 바닷가 모형의 풍경이 영상으로 나타나며 신비로운 무드를 자아낸다. 이는 매체를 통해 파라다이스로 각인되어 이미지가 모니터 속 실제와 허구의 두 가지 구조로 표현되는 것. 허구적 현실의 재현을 통해 갖게 된 우리의 지각과 인식에 대한 이야기를 전달하고자 한다. 작가 이수진은 아슬아슬하거나, 어렴풋한 것, 한 가지로 정의할 수 없는 모호한 결말이나 불확실한 연결성 등에 가치를 둔다. ‘글라스 랜드스케이프’는 자투리 유리를 재활용해 도시화와 산업화에 따른 징후와 현상을 조명한 작품. 잔혹하고 날카로운 공포의 감각을 주는 유리 조각은 달리 생각하면 연약하고 부서지기 쉬운 잔디나 신비로운 결정체처럼 보인다. 거대한 도시의 이면에 숨은 또 다른 도시의 풍경을 간접적으로 표현했다는 점에서 인상 깊다. 앞으로가 더 기대되는 ‘샌드위치 apt.’의 첫 전시 <사적인 움직임>은 오는 7월 31일까지 이어진다. 샌드위치 apt. 서울 성동구 연무장길 114 3층 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
