Repurposed Owl Napkin Necklaces

owl napkin single 1

Recently I found some unusual owl themed cocktail napkins at a fun store in Astoria, Oregon. I used copper medium weight ArtEmboss as the backing to make two owl themed versions.

These were so easy to make and they are truly OOAK!

Step One:  Separate the napkin layers and use glue stick to attach the top layer of the napkin to regular printer paper.  Let completely dry.

Step Two:  Use glue stick that is intended for metal and attach the image to medium weight ArtEmboss or recycled tin (like a cookie tin).  Let completely dry.

Step Three: Cover the top with a good coat of Diamond Glaze (Judikins) and dry completely.  I use a hair dryer on hot/low speed and it dries in about 3 minutes.

Step Four:  Use a tiny punch to make holes and secure a necklace chain.

I had a garage sale bracelet that I clipped the beads to decorate the bottom.

      1. Hi again! I just finished ordering the owl necklace. 🥰 Some of what you do reminds me of the hobby club I was a member of all the years we were in Bowman. Our club was called The Dizzy Dabblers & we made so many different fun things throughout the years! Yes, it would be great to catch up with each other. Hard to believe how time has passed! It will be great once Covid 19 is behind us. Stay safe & I’ll let you know when I get my owl! 🦉🦉🦉
