Intro: DIY Tetris Pendants
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:-
- Foam board
- Cutting mat
- Pencil and ruler
- X-acto knife
- Colored cardstock paper
- Craft glue
- Jump ring
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.
