Just in time for St. Patty’s Day, create your own necklace of liquid luck! This was originally a Christmas ornament I made, but I see no reason why you can’t add a longer chain and wear it around your neck for a little extra luck. It’s really simple to make. All you need is a glass vial, gold seed beads, decoupage glue, a silver chain, and an optional four leaf clover charm.
1. Fill glass vial with seed beads. I got these vials off of eBay for very cheap. They came with the cork and the loop to attach them to a chain, so that was convenient. Any gold or yellow seed beads from your local craft store will work. Get the smallest size you can, though, as these only fit about eight beads in them.
2. Next, print out this label that I made. You may have to use your printer layout option to make sure it’s small enough for whatever size vile you got.
3. Once you print out your label, you can cut it out and paste it on to the glass vile using decoupage glue. I used Royal Coat Decoupage Finish and a disposable foam sponge brush. Put a little glue on the back of the label and place it on the glass, and then brush over it to make sure all the wrinkles are smoothed out and it’s sealed. The glue will dry clear, but I took a tissue with a little water and cleaned the glass around the label just so that it’s nice and clear.
4. The final step is to attach your chain to the eyelet on the cork, and you’re good to go. Craft stores sell chain that is easy to take apart to the length you want it with a pair of needle nosed pliers. You’re all done! Like I said, you have the option of adding the four leaf clover like I did, but I think it looks cute without it, too. I found the clover charm on eBay as well.
