DIY Pride and Prejudice Book Cover Pendant

Like many women out there, Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite classic books. I decided to make a pendant using my favorite cover of the book - the peacock one. It took all of about 5 minutes (plus drying time).

Rectangle Bezel - I found mine at Hobby Lobby
Printed picture of book cover, shrunk to the correct size to fit in your bezel (Google and Word)
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic

  1. Cut out the book cover picture to fit in your bezel.
  2. Cover the picture with Dimensional Magic.
  3. Use a small needle or pin to remove any air bubbles (make sure to get any air out from underneath your picture -
  4. Let dry for 24 hours.
  5. Put your new pendant on a chain and proclaim your literary love to the world.
I'm planning on wearing mine on the first day of class next quarter (since I do teach reading and writing). In fact, I'm considering making a whole bunch of them (of different books, of course) and making a game out of it for my students. Perhaps extra credit if they can tell me one thing about the book I'm wearing. Now to pick out what other books I would want to do...

Choices, choices...
