love these!

Winners have been chosen
Giveaway closed

The same friend Kara that showed me how to do the scrabble tile pendants, told me about these glass tile pendants.


They turned out so cute! I just love them! They are even easier than the scrabble tiles!



(love my green jacket. thanks kelly who hooked me up at christmas!)


You'll need:

glass tiles
bails
diamond glaze
scrap booking paper

(I ordered the tiles and bails from this store.)

Trace your tile onto your scrap booking paper.


Cut it out a tiny bit smaller than your tracing line.



Cover the back of your tile with diamond glaze.



Place your paper face down onto the tile. Press firmly all around the paper onto the tile. Flip tile over to make sure the diamond glaze looks nice and smooth where it shows through to the front.



Cover the back of the paper with diamond glaze to seal it.



If you want you can use a foam brush to spread it around evenly.


Wait a few minutes for the diamond glaze to dry, then glue a bail to the back of the tile.


Want one?! Leave a comment letting me know! I don't have these exact ones left, but I can make ones that are similar using the same paper. So you can let me know which one you like in the comments. You could also get a little crazy and let me run free like the wild woman I am, and let me surprise you!

Trey or Lucy will pick a winner out of a hat in a couple of days.

Those are so cute! I have been wanting to order the scrable tile kit and keep forgetting! Maybe that was for the best because I am loving the glass tiles! I definately love the black and white!

Hi, I found your blog through a link on another blog that I read. They said you had cute craft ideas, and they were right. =) I love the tutorials and I would love one of your necklaces. All of them look pretty, so surprise me!

Randy, Capri, and Wyatt said...

Sure I will take one. Do you sell all of this stuff?

Kimberly said...

I feel so cool sometimes that I even know you because you are the crafting queen. I thought the scrabble tiles ones were cute, but I think these are better. Maybe someday my child will allow me to get a little sewing or crafting done myself. :)

Skye and Aaron said...

What a great idea!!! Love it! I would love one! Anything with black and white i love!

The Jen said...

Tanya, you are amazing, and of course I want one, but I never win these things.

I love your tiles! I would totally love one. They are so clear, and shiny. Nice paper choices too :)

Kathryn said...

These are very lovely and your tutorial makes the project sound doable and not as intimidating as other projects I have seen. Thanks for sharing it.

Ashley said...

Okay, I feel selfish entering again after winning once, but I just can't help myself. Otherwise I might just have to order a real one through you if I can do that because I LOVE THEM too!

Serena said...

I've been wondering how to make these! Thank you for the lovely tutorial!

ericksons said...

I have to leave a comment. It's so funny how I found you and that I know who you are on top of that. I went to the site One Pretty Thing and clicked on the Smith family tutorial for glass pendant necklaces. (I love these and want to make them. I've got to get my supplies first.)

Anyway, I'm a good friend of Jaclyn's. I don't know if you remember me from your trips to Mattawa at all. My name was Zirker then. When I saw your name I wondered if you were the same Tanya that I knew connected to Jaclyn, and indeed you are.

Love the blog and all the craft ideas.

illenion said...

These are all really cute and simple, thanks for the tutorial - found this via One Pretty Thing. Please count me in for the drawing!

hey I made these for Christmas using the rectangle glass and found that the bails would easily break off with anylateral pressure. Especially with the two sided scrapbook paper. You don't have that same problem?

Amy Jo said...

Those are cool! I've made a zillion of the scrabble tiles since I saw your post on them. I only have one tile left. Guess I should follow suit and get me some glass tiles! I also used some Rummycube tiles from a game we never play. They are a great rectangle size to work with. (and I've still got about 93 of those left!)

Stephanie Wagner said...

May said...

Found you through a link on Tipnut.
I'm not "crafty", but the bug is starting to bite me.

I'd love one.

I'm also thinking - because I just read about etched glass and I'm a photographer too - a combination of paper and etching?

Gosh - the craft world is unlimited, isn't it! I'm amazed.

I saw this post awhile back when someone sent me the link to your bandanna dresses. I decided to make bandanna dresses for my nieces and tile pendants for all the women in my life for Christmas. The pendants I've given away so far have been a big hit. Thanks for this easy tutorial.

Betty Rollins said...

What if it's raining really hard? Diamond Glaze is water-soluble. Do you use a different sealer for the back for wet climates? If so, which one? :)
