DIY My Name Necklace



I love shrink plastic.  I made these "my name" necklaces for my daughters a while back with shrink plastic.  All you have to do is cut out the name using shrink plastic, paint them and bake them.  Mine was kinda big (I think I may use it for a key chain instead).  The original size of the name as 8 inches and it shrunk down to 4 inches.  You could experiment with the size and color.  I used gold paint to embellish it a little.  It's not something I would wear to work, but a fun day to day necklace.  It also helped Avery practice the letters in her name.  Avery loved her necklace and its great because shrink plastic is cheap so I don't have to worry about her losing it.

Use Cricut or die cut machine to cut shrink plastic.
Try to fit as many names on one sheet.  If your mat isn't that sticky recutting shrink plastic on small pieces can be disastrous.

Remember to punch holes before you bake!



After you bake you can paint with gold paint.

I applied a thin coat of polyurethane onto seal the paint.
