Patriotic Scarf-lace made with Resin and Fabric
This project first came to mind after i spied some toy soldiers at the dollar store... Hmmm, what to make... So I made a mold and cast the soldiers, I painted them army green and they were adorable. I thought about just putting a jump ring on it and making a charm, but how boring is that? AND I was a day late for Memorial Day, next up, 4th of July!!
I found some flag fabric in my stash drawer (why I have fabric, I have no idea since I cant sew worth a poop) and thought to use it as a necklace base.
I had recently purchased some cool army dies from Die-Versions and thought the eagle would be an awesome centerpiece to my Patriotic Scarf-lace. So, here is what I did...
Eagle Die-Versions die
Amazing Mold Putty
Amazing Casting Resin
Blue Resin Dye
Patriotic bandanna size piece of fabric
Cut fabric to the shape of a bandanna
Fold in half and then cut in a triangle shape. Keep folded in half for cutting fringe.
Cut fringe and slide pony beads on.
One tip... Use a open paper clip to help feed the fabric through the bead.
Now mold and cast your soldiers. I found mine at the dollar store. You will need to clip off the stand of each and file and trim some of the edges.
Make your mold.
I added blue dye to the resin so I would have vivid blue pieces. The army green didn't seem to work with the bright flag pattern.
Glue a pony bead to the back of the soldier so you can slide the soldier on the fringe. The weight of the soldier may make it slide off, so I tied a knot under it.
Now you are going to make the eagle. I used the box from a 12 pack of Sam's colas. Punch 4 or 5 eagles out and glue them together.
Make a mold and cast with blue dyed resin.
Glue a pony bead in the center ( i used a smaller bead) and slide in the center of the scarf-lace with the soldiers flanking. Tie a knot under each soldier and the eagle.
How amazing is this?
I even went back and made a mold of the back of the soldiers. They were just as nice as the front side.
Our finished project came out amazing!You can tie it around your neck or add a necklace clasp to it.
