I am so excited to introduce you to this cool new product from Plaid called Mod Melts.

A few weeks back I received this box of goodies in the mail! It included Plaid’s new line of Mod Melts and molds. The Mod Melts sticks work somewhat like hot glue. All you do is pop them into your glue gun, squeeze it in the mold, let it sit, pop them out and embellish like crazy! I decided to make a mod melts necklace!

To make a necklace like I did, here’s what ya need:
Mod Melt Sticks
Floral Mod Melt Mold
Acrylic paint
Gloss Mod Podge
Hot Glue
Vintage Brooch **optional
Ribbon
Solid color felt sheet
 
1. Heat up your hi-temp glue gun and insert a mod melt stick in it. Once your gun is good and hot, squeeze your mod melt into the molds of your choice. Start from the middle and work your way out. (I tried all the different molds I had, but ended up using the rose molds for my necklace. )

2. Let your melts dry in the mold for 10 minutes and then pop them out. Now, you can paint your melts a color of your choice with a round sponge or even leave them as is! (I used a turquoise acrylic paint.) If you do paint them, to give your mod melts a little shine, top them off with a little gloss finish Mod Podge.

 3. Pull out your felt and arrange your melts in a necklace pattern. I pulled out an old vintage brooch I had to use in the middle of the necklace, but this is optional! Once you have your melts arranged the way you like, hot glue each one down.

4. After the glue has had plenty of time to dry, carefully cut the necklace out. I used regular scissors for this and just snipped very carefully around the mod melts to remove the excess felt.

5. Cut two pieces of ribbon. I cut more than I needed so I wouldn’t be short. Hot glue each piece along either side on the back of the necklace on the felt.

Now, tie the ribbon in a pretty bow around your neck! (I hope you can tie a prettier bow than I can!)
