Today, Virginia from Artsy VaVa is back with a fun tutorial. That’s perfect and just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Fairly simple and totally cute too! This DIY Necklace is the perfect way to keep those pinching pranksters at bay! Let’s just get right to it, shall we?
Find a penny,
pick it up,
all day long you’ll have good luck!
There has been talk of doing away with the penny altogether. If that happens, it really will be lucky to find one!
Another symbol of good luck is the 4 leaf clover.
And with St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner,
this project combines both symbols to double your luck!
Here’s what you’ll need to create this
Lucky Penny Necklace…
A Shamrock Charm
Green Acrylic Paint
Glossy Accents (Dimensional Embellishment)
This 4 leaf clover charm was the perfect size to fit on a penny…
Use tin snips to cut off the loop on the top of the charm,
then paint the clover with green acrylic paint.
Allow to dry, then using E6000,
glue the charm onto the penny.
Cover with Glossy Accents…
This will go on milky but will dry clear…
Allow to fully dry overnight.
Glue a jewelry bail onto the back using E6000…
and, your Lucky Penny is complete…
Do you pick up a penny when you see one,
or do you pass it over?
Thanks, Virginia! That is super cute and totally easy. I’m gonna have to do some playing with that Glossy Accents stuff. I’ve never heard of it before, but it looks like a ton of fun! Go check out the other cool stuff Virginia has been up to lately over on Artsy VaVa!
