Today’s project is 2015 & 2016 Mutual Theme Pendants!
I’d love to share how you use my YW Values Now Collection printables–send me an email and let me know. Pictures are even better!
A sweet reader asked if I could make some prints with the 2016 Mutual Theme for her to put into 30x40mm pendants. I took this project one step further and made designs for both the 2015 “Embark” AND the 2016 “Press Forward” themes!
- These pendants make perfect YW Christmas or birthday gifts
- Give to your girls as handouts at New Beginnings or Young Women in Excellence
- Or, present them to outgoing Stake & Ward leaders
- Make them as a Girls Camp craft or for a Mutual craft night
I’ve got 8×10-inch high-quality JPEG files of both theme versions for you–either print on cardstock on your printer’s highest-quality setting or have printed as 8×10-inch photos.
When my 12-year-old daughter saw me making these, she wanted to make one for herself–she even wore it to Church on Sunday!
These beautiful pendants can be made for less than $2 each–including the pendant tray, glass cabochon and chain. I purchased my supplies from LillyD’s Craft Supplies, but you can find supplies all over the web. Here are just a few:
- Etsy Search for 30x40mm Oval Pendant Tray Kits
- Pretty Charmed on Etsy
- Sun and Moon Craft Kits
- Belles Bead Supplies
You can also find a ton on Ebay and Amazon, just search for 30x40mm oval pendant kits.
In addition to the 30x40mm pendant trays, glass cabochons, and chains, you will need to purchase glaze. Both LillyD’s and Sun and Moon sell it. I have ordered supplies from both of these companies and they are both quick and awesome to work with.
Once you’re ready to assemble your pendants, check out this fantastic, very detailed tutorial from LillyD’s here.
My download includes 8×10-inch JPEG files with 30x40mm ovals in both the 2015 & 2016 Mutual Themes and in eight different color combinations, which coordinate with my YW Values Now Collection printables.
You can download my YW Values Now Collection 30x40mm Pendant Prints here.
You will need to UNZIP the download before you can access the files.
Remember, all of my downloads are for noncommercial personal or Church use only.
Do not share my files in any way. Please send your friends here to download their own copies.
Watch this blog for a few more coordinating YW Values Now Printables to come. (You’ve got to see the necklaces–coming soon!)

Thank you so very much for your kindness and generosity in sharing your amazing talents.

Hi!! I love these ideas that you have!! One question: how do we UNZIP the file so that i can access them??
It’s really easy to unzip a file. Just download the file (it is a zipped file), navigate on your computer to the file you downloaded, right-click on the file and select “Extract All” from the pop-up menu that appears and then navigate on your computer to the location you want to file to be and click “Extract.”
Thank you so much for sharing your talent! You are so awesome! I have actually downloaded everything you have in here!!! I love the 2016 YW oval pendants you have posted. I have ordered the necessary materials from Lilly D’s and I just got them today! I have finished making 10 necklaces and have 10 more to go. You just don’t know how much your generosity has helped me and the YW in our ward here in the Philippines! Again, thank you soooooo much!!!
Awww…I am humbled to be able to serve the precious YW in your country!
