DIY sports necklace instructions
- Download the Everyday Dishes & DIY Printable Sports Jerseys and the Everyday Dishes & DIY Printable Sports Balls and open in Adobe Reader. Type in your player’s number then print out on regular paper. Cut out jersey(s) and ball(s) of your choice.
- Adhere cutouts to the aluminum sheet using the sticker maker or spray adhesive. Next, carefully cut the metal sheet along the edge, using scissors.
- Pour Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on the front of the cutout, making sure it’s not too thick. Otherwise, it won’t dry correctly. Allow it to dry overnight.
- Once the Dimensional Magic is dry, turn the cutout over, center a pendant hanger clasp on the back at the top and attach using industrial-strength glue. Allow it to dry overnight.
- When the glue is dry, attach jump ring and lobster clasp to the chain and feed through the pendant hanger. You’re now ready to wear your necklace and cheer for your favorite player!
