Glass tile pendants are a fun and easy way to make photo jewelry. Ever since I helped my niece make one featuring her favorite pooch, I’ve been wanting to try some of my own. For this Halloween version, I used a favorite “glowing” jack-o’-lantern photo that I took several years ago.
Choose a photo for your pendant or download mine below. Gather your supplies.
You Will Need:
- Glass Tiles (Mine were about .9″ square. I ordered online, but I’ve also seen them at my local Hobby Lobby.)
- Pendant Bail (one per necklace)
- Black Satin Cord (or necklace chain of your choice)
- Mod Podge or other jewelry decoupage medium (read label to make sure it can be used on glass)
- Small Brush
- Scissors or paper trimmer
- Halloween Image (printed and cut to fit your tile)

- Purple Jack ‘o’ Lantern photo (click to download)
- Green Jack ‘o’ Lantern photo (click to download)
Note: I have saved the photos as 1 inch squares. When you print, reduce or enlarge to fit your tiles. I printed my images on a laser printer to avoid ink bleeding when the decoupage medium is applied.
Spread a thin layer of Mod Podge on the right side of the printed image. Carefully place it face down on the back side of the tile. Let dry. Seal with additional coats according to package directions.
When dry, attach a pendant bail with E-6000 or other jewelry glue.
Once it’s dry, string on a necklace or ribbon and enjoy. Wouldn’t these make fun party favors or an inexpensive non-candy treat? I’ll definitely be sharing some with a few of my favorite girls!
