About Teflon Sheets: These things are awesome! You can buy them for cooking, dehydrating and crafting. They are inexpensive and reusable. I have two for crafting and you can work with hot glue, paint and all types of mediums and they clean right off. Excellent for crafters. Some are thicker than others. I used my thin one for this project because you can trace through it.
- Hot Glue Gun (Use low temp if kids are involved. The one linked to that I use is dual temp.)
- Teflon sheet (This is one I own. It’s a 16″x24″) You could use foil but you can’t trace through it, obviously.
- Paint, or Spray Paint (Whatever you choose to color them with}
- Extra Fine Glitter (optional)
If using a thin Teflon sheet, place your pattern underneath it. Trace the design with a glue gun making sure the side lines are as long or as short as desired.
You can also just draw in with the glue gun using no pattern. Foil will also work if you can draw your own designs without needing to trace.
Allow the glue to cool for 3 or 4 minutes, them peel it off.
Pull off any small strings of glue that remain.
Paint your necklace if desired with acrylic paint and a brush or spray paint.
Attach string or cord for tying the necklaces on in a variety of ways. We glued most of ours on.
