Steps

  • Step 1
    Cut a piece of chipboard in half or quarters, depending on the size you desire. Select several pieces of tumbled glass and arrange them on the chipboard.
  • Step 2
    Trace around glass shape and cut out the chipboard with a craft knife.
  • Step 3
    Trim the chipboard so that the glass pieces hang off the edge slightly. Use a glue gun to attach the glass pieces.
  • Step 4
    Instead of grout, press a small amount of black Sculpley III Oven Bake Clay between the gaps with a modeling tool. Bake the pin according to instructions on the Sculpey package.
  • Step 5
    Attach a pin to the back of the chipboard with a glue gun.
  • Optional Step 1
    Optional: Seal with Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating Spray to protect the glass and make it shiny.
