  1. Make the pendant: Begin with a large circle Podgeable shape. Choose your background paper. (This is the flower pattern from Antique Urban) Trim the paper to fit the top of the Podgeable shape. (You can use paper punches too) 
  2. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the top of the Podgeable shape and to the back of the background paper. Position the background paper on the Podgeable. Smooth with your fingers. Apply a top-coat of Mod Podge. 
  3. Create a Mod Melt bird-nest by heating a Mod Melt stick in a high temp glue gun, fill the mold with the Mod Melt, allow to cool, remove from the mold. 
  4. Paint the Nest Inca Gold and the eggs Pearl White. Top coat with a little bit of Mod Podge to seal. 
  5. Using gem glue, attach the bird flat charms and the nest to the Podgeable. Allow to dry for 2 hours. 
  6. Cover the Podgeable with Dimensional Magic. Begin around the outer edge and fill until the entire pendant is covered. Dry for 24 hours in an undisturbed and non-drafty place. 
  7. Attach to a pearl necklace with a jumpring. 
Tip: While the Dimensional Magic is drying don’t move the pendant around or you might get air bubbles. If you do get an air bubble, use a sewing pin to pop it.
