How To DIY Christmas Jewelry With Epoxy Resin

Make Christmas jewelry

‘Tis the season to get busy with resin! We creatives know it’s almost always cheaper to DIY Christmas jewelry than buy it. The only catch is finding the time. I recommend you find the time! Making holiday resin pendants and magnets is a great way to give a handmade gift this season!  For this project, I calculated that each bezel and each set of magnets (6 per set) cost less than $10 to make, including everything.

This project requires:

STEP 1: Get a Christmas image

You can make your own or buy one on Etsy. There are a ton of images you can buy. Simply search “digital collage for resin” or “Christmas images for resin.”

STEP 2:  Prepare your paper

Seal the paper with glue several times on each side. Be sure to get the sides too.

STEP 3: Glue the image to a backing

For this project, I used 1-inch round wooden discs.

STEP 4:  Add resin

Mix the Resin Obsession crystal doming resin. Add slowly to the pendant surface. Carefully remove any bubbles that appear. This resin mixes thick which is why it doesn’t spill over the edge like resin for molds.

STEP 5:  Finish with a bail

To finish the DIY Christmas jewelry, I glued on bails. For others, I glued on ¾-inch magnets for my friends who don’t wear resin necklaces.

Find an inexpensive way to present your jewelry and put all the money you saved into your next resin project!
