How to make your own genie in a bottle pendant with resin and glitter

This is the perfect little resin pendant project for when you have a little bit of resin you don’t want to waste.  Use one of our glass bottle pendants and some glitter (who doesn’t love sparkle?!) and you will have have a new pendant in no time!

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.

adding resin into a glass bottle

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.

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.

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.
