Button Resin Charms Craft Tutorial

One of my subscribers sent me a picture of a button pendant that she found.  She had the picture, but couldn't find the directions.  So, she asked if I could make one.

You will need:
-  Resin pendant mold
You can find jewelry molds at
-  Buttons
The buttons are from Oriental Trading
-  Resin
The resin is Easy Cast.  For more information, you can go to their website at
You can also find it at Michaels, Hobby Lobby and Resin Obsession
- Glitter

Here is the video tutorial:


1.  Prepare resin according to package directions.
2.  Pour a little bit of resin into the mold.
3.  Add buttons.
4.  Allow to cure.  I left it for 12 hours.
5.  I added additional resin and poured in the glitter.
6.  Allow to cure for 12 hours before unmolding.

That's it!  You can glue on a jewelry bail and now you have an awesome charm!

The other pendant was made by putting resin into a mold and adding layers of buttons.  It was inspired by a pendant out of Katherine Swift's book.  You can find her book on Amazon.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Crafting!
