Need a cute little gift topper to go with Jill's Chalkboard Gift Tags?? How about these stamped metal necklaces??
Supplies needed to make your own stamped metal name charms:
- Rectangle Frame Charms (These come in a variety of finishes)
- Thin Ball Chain (I like the really delicate, lightweight versions for this necklace)
- Metal Punching Set of Letter Punches
- Metallic Markers
- Rag & Small Hammer
(Note: Even after buying all the supplies, two of which you can use over and over and over again -- you are STILL far under the cost of the stamped metal inspiration necklace!!)
Wipe off excess with a rag (it might need to be slightly damp).
You want the metallic color to stay in the letters to help them pop out from the background.
Play around with colors to see which you prefer!
To finish off the stamped metal necklace, string the charm onto your ball chain and then attach the self-adhesive "cover" to the top.
I love the price of these stamped metal necklaces (around $2-3 each!), the simplicity and the almost dog-chain-feel they have with the ball chains. You can string mutiple charms on one necklace or wear several for your multiple children, or simply wear a single charm with your own name!
