  Don't you need to rough up the metal a bit to make the glue stick better? I bought some large washers once for crafts, and never did anything with them. I could see some wired bead embellishments on these.
Thanks for the idea!

These are SO COOL! I've seen people wrap yarn around washers, but not anything like this! Rocked!

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Where can you find the Glossy Accents? Walmart or Michael's in Canada?
LOVE the idea, perfect for my teen daughter to make for her friends for Christmas!
I found mine at Joann's in the Scrapbook section, but it took me forever to find. (I couldn't find anyone to help me so I ended up calling the store I was in and was like "Hi I am in isle three can you help me?" ) Anyway it is used for stamps alot so try looking in that section or in the adhesive section. I am sure though you can find it at any craft like store.

  Don't you need to rough up the metal a bit to make the glue stick better?
I don't rough up my washers and the mod podge stick just fine. What I do is put the Mod Podge on the washer first; then I put it on the back of my paper.  By the time that I put the two together it is not as wet and more sticky. KWIM? I don't know if that makes a difference or not. Also I would worry about bumps if it were roughed up. The washer though does have a rough side and a smooth side. I use the smooth side because I like the look of it more. To each their own though.


Thank you so much for all of your kind words, sorry it took so long to reply but it has been a crazy weekend. I can't wait to see all of your guys pictures of you washer necklaces!

Now these might also be cute for Christmas Ornaments with Holiday gift wrap paper and Holiday ribbon and a bow. I'm going to try those as well. It would be fun to give someone  a ornament and necklace that match and have a bow at the top if the ornament. I have a friend that has a coffee theme tree and I have some coffee bean scrap booking paper I wanted to use for her for something. This would be cute. I could even dangle and string some coffee beans off the ornament! Depending on the washer you might even do some zipper pulls for luggage or a purse. I sometimes make purse charms. I like them to jazz up a older bag so it feels new again! This idea rocks
