Guest Post: Washer Pendant Necklace

Hey All! I'm still trying to get my life under control with our new little additions, so in the meantime one of my favorite bloggy friends is here to share an awesome project!

 Washer Pendant Necklace
by Karen from QuintonWench

The humble washer .... a plenty lying around in my husband's garage waiting for a DIY use.

I rarely step foot in the garage, but I'm glad I did today, because I have found a 'Karen' use for one...
A washer pendant...

First I punched out a circle from a random piece of patterned paper - luckily I have a hole punch the same size as the washer.

I stuck the paper circle to the washer with Mod Podge and once dry I used a craft knife to cut out the centre. Then I brushed on a top coat of Mod Podge.

Finally, I added some black cord and a bead to finish it off.
