Five Minute Eiffel Tower Necklace

Along with my Distressed Photo Jewelry Tray, that I posted about on Friday, I made this cute Eiffel Tower Necklace. It is probably one of the fastest crafts I have ever made and people always ask where I got it. 
 You will need:
An acrylic necklace tile, I used the ones by Mod Podge and they were fabulous.
Scrapbook paper with a design small enough for the tile, I also used papers by Mod Podge, they were great! I had no problem with wrinkles.
Regular or Glitter Mod Podge, The Mod Podge Glitter is perfect for this craft, it adds just the right amount of sparkle. 
a jump ring
Cut out a piece of scrapbook paper that is the same size of your acrylic necklace tile. 
 Add a thin coat of Mod Podge to the front of the piece of paper and secure to the tile. Starting in the center of the paper, smooth the paper out towards the edges, making sure there are no air bubbles. After the paper is secure, add another coat to the back.
Wait for the Mod Podge to dry, add a jump ring to the hole in the acrylic so you can slide it on a necklace easily. Add the chain and you have a cute, easy necklace. If you use the Glitter Mod Podge, you should be able to see little flecks of glitter through the acrylic
This simple necklace would be a perfect craft for large groups and it require minimal skills and they are easily customized to each person. As for me? This necklace is perfect for my Europe obsession.
