DIY St Patrick’s Day Jewelry

Jewelry Attitude St Patrick's DayHello there awesome people!  I’m back with more festive jewelry ideas for you featuring Craft Attitude’s Jewelry Attitude film!  But before we get rolling, have you ever seen the movie, Darby O’Gill and the Little People?  Filmed in 1959 with young Sean Connery (insert sizzling hot sound)! I always think about it when St. Patty’s rolls around.  I’m going to have to rent it on Amazon Prime for old times sake.  And fast forward through the banshee part…..for old times sake.

Now back to the Craft Attitude Jewelry project ideas!!

Candie Cooper St. Patricks Jewelry MaterialsFor materials (working L to R) we have exhibits:

A: Jewelry Attitude B: tacky earrings from Wal-mart C: layering bracelets (also from Wal) and D: Tierra Cast pewter bezel frame charms.

If only you could have seen my husband’s face when I dropped those earrings into the shopping basket.  “They’re for a craft project, Honey,” I said reassuringly with a few pats on his back.  Sorry, if you own those earrings by the way.

Print onto Jewelry AttitudeAre you looking for some great St. Patty’s images?  The Graphic’s Fairy is your new BFF then because she has a ton of amazing, vintage St. Patrick’s themed art waiting for you.

Next, print your images onto the Jewelry Attitude film so they are the perfect size.  Remember to flip your images before printing–especially if there is text on them.  Check this post for tips on resizing and flipping images.

Before and After Craft AttitudeThe thing we all love about Craft Attitude is its ability to pick up the texture of the surface it’s on along with its transparency.  By the way, did you recognize the earrings from the clearance rack?  I took them apart.

Green Earrings with Craft AttitudeThis is one of my favorite things to do with the film:  find a simple surface and cover it with a fun printed image.  Done.

Shamrock JewelryFor this pair, I cut around the printed image and Mod Podged to the metal earring part.

Mod Podge green sparklesI like using Mod Podge Outdoor formula because of the durability.  Use it to add sparkles to your pieces all day long!
