I ordered these scrabble tiles and bails from Pick Your Plum a few weeks ago. This is what I decided to do with them:

In addition to the tiles and bails, I used E6000 glue, DG3 Art Gel, some art that my husband designed, and an image of shirt and tie from a vintage magazine.

The first thing was to cut the art to the size of the tile. I printed it out at 1 x 1 inch, but cut it down just a tiny bit because I didn’t want it to hang over at all. I’d rather have it a smidge too small than a smidge too big. All the images except the vintage magazine were coated in Mod Podge. Once that was dry I put a few drops of DG3 Art Gel onto the tile and spread it around with my finger. I pressed the art onto the tile while the DG3 was still wet.

After it dried for an hour or so, I added some more DG3 on top of the art. I used my finger again to spread it out evenly.

After it dried, I glued the bail onto the back with the E6000 glue. Once that had dried, I used the DG3 and finger painted a coat onto the back and sides of the tile. After more drying, I put one more coat of DG3 Art Gel on the top of the tile pendant. You can see it’s getting pretty shiny.

That’s it! I put the tiles onto this necklace that was holding another pendant. I love that I can use the same necklace and change out the pendants. What do you think?

    Very cute! Love the robot it reminds me of Sheldon Cooper from Big Bang:)
    I have made these but I used a diamond resin, wonder if the craft gel you used is easier. I know with the resin I like it because it dries real hard and is durable, but the bad thing is it will bubble, so you need to keep an eye on it as it dries to make sure you don’t end up with a blemished product from bubbles. Thanks for sharing. I will have to look for the product you used.

  11. I’m featuring these tonight!!! They’re so cute!
