Lucky charm bracelet for St. Patrick's Day Fun
The is Busy Heidi from the blog hands. Today, I’ve got a St Patrick craft project for you, that’s literally made with Lucky Charms cereal – I’m not kidding.I had the idea for this project long before I found out how the hell to achieve it. Just my due diligence, I googled and found a few people who’d Lucky Charms inspired bracelets out of clay and glass. I was able to find’t someone’d used the cereal for a project.I’m probably crazy, but the lucky charm bracelet is dope. There, I said it. Now, you go to this – you’ve got a lot of time in front of the St. Paddy’s this look for yourself!lucky charm braceletCollect These Supplieslucky charms marshmallows (you can buy them separately!)Mod hodgepodge Dimensional magic crafting wire (mine was 28 gauge, very low duty)Two pairs of jewelry pliers small wire cutter charm bracelet chain with clasp (I made my chain, but also in many stores for similar items)5mm or 7mm jump rings to match to your bracelet chain paint brushWaxed paper small platedirectionsDisconnected from any type of marshmallow from your cereal. Not lucky charms eaten in a zillion years, I don’t know where or when all the moons came in to play, but you’re colorful and swirly, they deserve a place in this project. Count your total amount of marshmallows and cut an inch-long piece of wire for each of them (I needed twelve pieces). Then, following the pictures below, fold each wire into a horseshoe shape by using a jewelry pliers and bending the ends down with your fingers.Use your wire cutters to even out the ends with a snip. Slide a horseshoe-wire in each marshmallow. Careful 8211 be marshmallows are’t super robust. Put all your Wi-Fi marshmallows on a piece of wax paper on a small plate.* Use a brush to paint a thin layer of Dimensional Magic (TM) on the top of the marshmallow. Let dry completely. *The small plate, so you can easily and carefully move your marshmallows out of the way to make sure each layer of Dimensional Magic dry. If you can only on waxed paper, you’t you move the drying marshmallows around without them all sliding about the place, sticking to each other sticking to the waxed paper, etc. It’s just a practicality thing.Flip your marshmallows over, Dimensional Magic-ed pages down, and paint another thin layer of DM onto the marshmallows. Again completely dry. Then, carefully paint the sides of each marshmallow, again with DM.The pages are the hardest part, because you don’t want to much DM on them and accidentally glue your carefully the creations of the wax paper. DM is strong stuff, if it’s dry! Repeat the painting, the top, bottom and sides of the charms are 3-to 5-times. The more levels you do, the stronger the seal. You’ve got to be patient with this project for him well. The thinner the layers, Dimensional Magic, the better.initially, I tried to make this bracelet by pouring Dimensional Magic on the marshmallows straight from the bottle. It was a stupid idea. The marshmallows got melty, the DM went everywhere, and the cable is solved.race, It was a total disaster, so take it from me, slowly and steadily, the good luck charm-bracelet-totally wins. 🙂3 – 5 layers, Dimensional Magic later . . . All right! You’ve conquered the hard part! The rest is as easy as adding charm to a charm bracelet. First of all, open a jump ring. The best way to open a jump ring with two pairs of jewelry includes pliers.you Keep steady one side of the jump ring and slide the other end of the ring away from the constant page, as shown with the arrows below. hook your charm onto the jump ring, hook the jump ring on the bracelet and close the jump ring by him, together with a motion exactly the opposite of what you did when she opened the ring. The ends of the ring touch to be sure.you Take a few minutes to decide on the arrangement of the stimuli. I didn’t want to be too many stimuli in the same color, or many moons to arrange next to each other, so I spent a few minutes my charms until I was satisfied each charm was in front of the attachment to the bracelet. I’m really excited to see how this turned out! It really wasn’all, that is still a lot of work in the end – it's just a bit of patience, and figuring out the right method for three-Dimensional magic. I’m looking forward to wearing this on St. Patrick’s day! As this lucky charm bracelet?
