Making a genie bottle pendant is the perfect project for when you have a little bit of resin you don’t want to waste. Use a glass bottle pendant and some glitter (who doesn’t love sparkle?!) and you will have something new to wear in no time!
Step 1: Gather your supplies
You won’t need much resin to fill this glass bottle. I used the little bit of mixed resin left in my cup from a different project, which was approximately 2 milliliters total. I also used the Stampendous crushed glass glitters in oceanic blue, champagne and fresh green. I chose glass glitter because it is heavy and will sink to the bottom of the resin. I can get several different layers of glitter without having to pour multiple times.
Step 2: Add resin
Since the opening of this bottle is very small, you will need to use a toothpick to place one drop of resin at a time into the bottle.
Step 3: Add glitter
To make adding the glass glitters to the bottle easier, I made a funnel from freezer paper. I then poured glass glitter into the funnel. The glass may not sink right away but should do so within 5 minutes.
The glass glitters may clump in the neck of the bottle. Use a toothpick to push the glitter down into the resin if necessary.
For additional layers, add a bit of resin, then add a bit of glass glitter. The glitter will displace the resin, so only add a little bit, then add glitter.
On a technical note: There’s nothing saying you have to pour all your resin and glitter layers at once. This is why this project is good for leftover resin.
Step 4: Glue on the cork top
After the resin has cured, apply a dot of E6000 adhesive to the cork. Place into the glass bottle and allow to cure for 24 hours.
Step 5: Enjoy your finished genie bottle pendant
Add a jump ring and hang on a necklace to wear!
