Looking for ideas for using objects in resin? Sometimes, finding your next resin project might be one step away from the trash.
Recycle found items for resin
Mix and add resin
When you’re using resin as glue to add found objects, you need a resin that mixes thick. That means you need the epoxy type you need to use is a doming resin. Add a few drops to the juice lid, then spread it to the edges.
💡 Pro tip: You won’t need much resin for this project. You can have this one handy for the times you have leftover resin.
Add other recycled items to the resin
Add other funky objects to the lid with resin. Tiny glass beads look great. Then, add bigger items. Some of my favorites are watch faces. If you don’t have any, you can find bags of broken watches at flea markets. And if you’re lucky, they’ll be old watches that still have gears in them that you can use for steampunk crafts.
Leave your project covered and undisturbed while it cures.
Time to finish
Your finished resin project featuring objects you saved from the trash is now ready for anything. Here are some ideas on what you can do with your new resin creation:
- Add a magnet to the back and decorate your refrigerator or locker
- Add a bar pin to the back to wear as a piece of jewelry
- Make several of these to serve as cake top decorations
