Do you ever have one of those smells that just trigger childhood memories and moments for you? For me, one of those smells, is Faultless Starch. I can remember my Mom ironing our clothes while growing up. She would always take particular care in ironing my Dad’s work shirts and pants. I have continued to use the same Faultless Starch in my home when I iron my husbands work shirts. It’s funny how somethings never change. One thing that has changed though, is that Faultless Starch has come out with a new product called Faultless Premium Starch. This product is great because it doesn’t flake on dark colors. I love this because no one wants to see flakes from ironing. Also, if you’re looking for helpful tips and additional ideas, Faultless has made it easy. You can head over to the Faultless on Facebook
page, browse and even enter the Faultless Starch Giveaway . Well, speaking of additional tips or ideas… besides my ironing, I also use starch for a lot of craft projects that I do. I especially use Faultless Starch when I’m completing a sewing project and need that finished, professionally ironed look for my blog photos. Well, today I wanted to share with you my tutorial for making this Vintage Lace Pendant Necklace, and explain how I used Faultless Premium Starch to help create this one of a kind jewelry piece.

Supplies Needed:

  • Vintage Doily
  • Faultless Premium Starch
  • Sewing Pen
  • Plastic Pendant (The one I used was by Tim Holtz.)
  • Scissors
  • Paint Brush
  • Mod Podge
  • X-Acto Knife
  • (3) Jump Rings (You will need more if you are planning on attaching more charms.)
  • Clasp
  • Round Nose Pliers
  • Wire Cutters
  • 36″ of Chain (You can use a shorter amount depending on if you want a shorter necklace. I like mine to hang a little longer.)

Step 1: Wash and iron your vintage lace doily using Faultless Premium Starch. You want to make sure that the lace doily is nice and flat.

Step 2: Trace around your plastic pendant onto the lace doily using a sewing pen. Cut out the lace doily.

Step 4: Apply the lace and make sure it is well adhered to the pendant. Paint another coat on top of the lace doily. Let this dry for several hours. If you get any Mod Podge on the front or the sides of the pendant, make sure to wipe it off with a damp paper towel.

Step 6: Take the X-Acto Knife and carefully cut the lace that is covering the hole for the pendant.

Step 7: Use the round nose pliers and open the jump ring up. Slide it into the opening of the pendant. Close the jump ring shut using the round nose pliers again.

Step 8: To finish the necklace, attach a jump ring to both ends of the chain by opening it up and hooking the chain in and closing it with the round nose pliers. The one side will also need the little attachment piece of the clasp hooked into it so that the necklace is all connected.

Step 9: Attach as many charms and/or beads as you want. I used jump rings that were larger for the charms so the would slide easily onto the chain.  photo Lace-Pendant-Necklace-Artzy Creations 8_zpshiq3jwjs.jpg

I love how this necklace turned out and the vintage/eclectic look of it. It was also a breeze to make the pendant. The hardest part was waiting for the Mod Podge to dry.undefined
