Rapunzel's Frying Pan Necklace
It's a good thing Rapunzel brought her trusty frying pan with her when she left the tower. She used it to protect herself in all kinds of situations. A miniaturized version of Rapunzel's lucky pan, this pendant is a pretty way to accessorize any outfit. Little princesses can personalize this charming necklace with glistening jewels and colorful ribbons.
- Lid from a baby food jar (or similar sized jar)
- Black tissue paper
- Black chenille stem
- Hot glue
- 4 pieces yellow yarn, each 2-inches long
- 2 pieces of thin ribbon, each 2-inches long
- Glittery jewel decal
1. Spread a thin layer of Mod-Podge over the top of the baby food lid. Place torn pieces of black tissue paper onto Mod-Podge and let dry. Continue to layer the Mod-Podge and tissue paper until the entire lid is covered, inside and out. Be sure to allow each layer to dry (approximately 15 minutes) before adding the next.
2. When the lid is covered in black tissue and completely dry, it's time to add the handle. Cut a chenille stem in half and then fold one half into a loop. Twist the ends together and glue onto the back of the pan.
3. Use a dot of hot glue to add a jewel decal to the center of the pan.
4. To make the chain, start by tying the yellow yarn and two pieces of ribbon together. Use the yarn and ribbons to make a tight braid -- the yellow yarn is one section and each ribbon is its own section. When you have reached the end of the braid, slide it through the frying pan's handle and tie the two ends of the braid together. Be sure that the necklace is large enough to fit over the head of the child who will wear it.
