How to create Dr Seuss inspired resin jewelry

by Angie Holden

Do you love all things Dr. Seuss? His quotes are not just for kids. You can make a Seuss quote pendant for yourself in minutes. I have three versions for you to download and add to a bezel. Make some additional versions in a word processing program if you wish. Then, make the Seuss inspired earrings for a full set. Let this technique jump-start your creativity for your own DIY Dr Seuss inspired jewelry.

Seuss Quote Pendants Instructions

Supplies needed:

Instructions:

STEP 1

Start by downloading and printing your Seuss quotes.  You will need to set the ink before continuing.  I used the spray sealer to do this but aerosol hair spray works as well.  Allow that to dry then do a thin coat of Mod Podge over your quotes.  Allow this to dry completely.

STEP 2

Cut the quotes from the paper with your scissors to the size of your bezel.  Use Mod Podge on the back of the paper to secure them inside of your bezel.  Allow to dry completely.

STEP 3

Once dry, add one more coat of Mod Podge over the top of your quote.  This will ensure that everything is fully sealed before pouring your resin.  Allow this final coat to dry completely before continuing.  While it was drying, I worked with things I had around my craft room to make a flat level surface for my bezels to lay.  This will be important once we pour the resin.

STEP 4

Measure and mix the resin according to the package directions then drip into the bezels.  You don’t want to overfill them so use caution.  I find that using my stir stick to add a few drops and push them to the edges works best.

Because you want a raised, domed finish to your DIY Dr. Seuss jewelry, use the Resin Obsession crystal doming resin.

STEP 5

Allow this to cure completely then add your bezels to a chain to wear them.

STEP 2

It is now time to add some glitter!  Fold some scrap pieces of paper in half and add a bunch of glitter to each one.

STEP 3

Use the paper as a funnel to direct the glitter into the top and bottom portions of the cavity.  Pour quickly as the glitter will spread.  Be sure to protect your other cavities with some scrap paper as well.
