Paper Pendants – Make Beautiful Jewellery From Junk

  • by

Paper pendants made from discarded cereal box cardboard are super easy to make!

Paper pendants are great fun to make and you can add your own abstract artwork.

It gives you exciting, bold and beautiful one-off pieces of jewellery to wear or give away as presents.

These paper pendants were made by using a discarded cereal box.

I created the curved base that I then mounted my artwork on.

They are really easy to make!

I have made a video so you can have a go, you can find it on You Tube by clicking here.

If you do not have your own artwork to use, then get painting!

Or, you can use any image you like from photos to images in magazines.

You can even use one of my free printables which you can find by clicking here.

But remember, paper pendants bearing your own abstract art are unique to you.

No one can ever copy exactly what you have painted

Have fun making your jewelry by simply splashing vivid acrylic paints around on some good quality art paper.

Do not get hung on ‘doing it properly’ – this is for fun and experimentation!

There is no ‘properly’ – just play with the paint and have fun in the process.

When dry, find an area of your painting you really like and punch it out with an oval craft punch.

This will form the front of your paper pendant.

Then use an empty cereal box to make a strong and durable base for your pendant.

You do this by punching out oval shapes to layer and mould, the way I demonstrate in

the video tutorial below.
