Introduction: DIY Tetris Pendants

About: Hey, I'm Muhaimina! A Craftaholic person (or Witch if you may say!). Obsessed with swirls and polka dots... and Instructables is pretty much my second home! Follow my IG Blog https://www.instagram.com/the_craf…

I'm an occasional tetris maniac! Why? here's the funny story, I install and uninstall tetris twice or more every week. When I start playing tetris, I go mad! I just can't stop playing until feeling dizzy! the moment I realize I've become a tetris addict I promise to myself 'this isn't good, I should stop now, I won't play tetris ever again, I'm uninstalling it right now'...... Next day, I just can't help myself from installing it again (I know it's foolish)... but anyways, I had to make these pendants. It took only 10 minutes to make'em and they turned out soooo cool.

I hope you enjoy making them and love'em :)

Step 1: Materials Needed

To make these pendants you'll need:-

  1. Foam board
  2. Cutting mat
  3. Pencil and ruler
  4. X-acto knife
  5. Colored cardstock paper
  6. Craft glue
  7. Jump ring
  8. Awl.

Step 2: Making the Tetris Shapes

On a small foam board draw a number of squares in rows and columns (use ruler and pencil to make sure all the squares are equal).

Cut out the 5 tetris shapes from the foam board with x-acto knife. Cut them as neatly as possible.

Step 3: Coloring and Attaching Jump Rings

Take each tetris shape and color them with black acrylic (I used fabric paint because it's thick and glossy).

Allow the paint to dry for a while.

After the paint dries make a small hole on the corner of each tetris shapes using an awl.

Attach jump rings through those holes.

Step 4: Gluing and Completing

Cut out small squares (smaller than the squares of the teris shapes) from colored cardstock papers. I used yellow, red, orange, purple and blue. You will 4 squares for each shape, obviously! :p

Now carefully glue the cutout square pieces on the tetris shapes.

There! you have cool tetris inspired pendants. Attach the pendant to a chain or black string.

Enjoy!

    It might be easier to paint the paper, then cut out the squares

    It will probably be faster. You could also do fun things like use a can of spray paint to get some beaten metal looks. =D

    I wasn't planning on making these pendants, so I made'em with the materials on hand. But, I'm definitely using spray paint next time. Thanks :)

    The best thing about this is the massive amount of versatility. You could easily use this method for any sort of simple game logo or object!

    I made some of these. They didn't turn out nearly as good as yours did, but I still love them! Thanks for the tutorial. :D

    They're cute! I think you need to cut the base carefully & use a little more golden paint :) I'm glad you made'em :) enjoy!

    I'm sure she would love'em (if she's a crazy tetris fan!)... make some for her.
