How to make a resin spoon pendantDid you know you can turn your next yard sale find into a resin pendant treasure?  Here’s how to make a resin spoon pendant with old tableware.


Resin Supplies:

Step 1:  Bend the spoon

how to bend a spoon

Bend your spoon around something hard and round to use as your mandrel.  (I used a screwdriver.)  Start the bend approximately 3/4 of an inch away from the top of the spoon.

Step 2:  Cut the spoon end

metal cutting shears

Use a pair of heavy-duty metal shears to cut the end off your spoon.  Hint:  Cutting with metal shears can be difficult!  You can also use a jeweler’s saw.  A hacksaw can work as well.

Step 3:  Finish the cut end

File the end of the cut edge of the spoon handle to make sure there are no sharp edges.

Use a pair of pliers to turn the end of your spoon under.

Step 4:  Fill with resin and glass beads

Position your spoon on the drying mat so it is level.  Hint:  You will need to make sure it is even from front to back and side to side.

Mix the resin according to label directions.  For this project, I mixed 1 teaspoon total.  If you have never mixed resin before, be sure to read this article on how to mix resin and hardener in five easy steps.

pouring resin

Pour resin into your spoon.  Fill it about 3/4 of the way full.  Do not overfill!  Adding the beads and your hair charm will displace some of the resin.

adding glass beads to resin

Shake glass beads into your resin.  Do enough to cover the entire spoon.

Gently place your resin charm into the center of your spoon.

Your glass beads will sink to the bottom of the resin.  Add more as glass beads or resin as necessary.  Hint:  You will need to do this two or three times.  Add beads, wait a few minutes, and recheck your resin.

Push any beads down from the side of the hairpiece.  You want to be sure they stick to the resin.

Cover your project with a dome and allow to cure.

      1. Hi Abie, thanks for sharing your insight. I wish we could have ‘safer’ tutorials for young crafters, but I’m afraid resin really isn’t appropriate for young children.
