DIY Shrink Plastic Gem Necklace
I’ve always loved using shrink plastic, it always feels like magic when you watch it shrink. It’s a great tool for making unique jewellery that is perfect for any occasion!
You will need:
- Shrink Plastic
- Colouring pencils
- Black Fine-Liner Pen
- Heat tool (or Grill)
- Jump rings
- Silver necklace.
Sand your Plastic sheet with a fine sandpaper. Then trace or draw a free hand design using a fine liner pen.
Colour in your design with colouring pencils, don’t worry if the colour comes out very light it will intensify as it shrinks so don’t over compensate as your pieces will come out too dark.
Cut around your design, leaving a few millimetres around the edge.
Hole punch where you would like the holes to be.
Lay out your necklace and jump rings. Use your pliers to put the necklace and jump rings together.
Ta da! One unique, but super cute necklace ready to go!
