  • How to make a camera pendant. Camera Necklace - Step 1
    Step 1

    First of all, draw or print out the templates on to paper and cut them out.

    You may want to make your necklace look like your own camera, but if you want to use the template I made, then you can download it.

    Step 9

    Cut out the mirror circle, so that it's a little shorter than the outside ring. Glue the circle in the middle of the camera. I just used pritt-stick to glue it down. I also cut out a little rectangle which I glued to the flash part of the camera.

    Step 10

    Glue the lens on to the camera, so that the mirror circle fits neatly inside (I used a stronger, clear adhesive glue to attach the lens). Attach two jump rings through the holes at either side and attach to a chain.

    Your camera necklace is now ready to wear!
