Making a Necklace out of Disney Pressed Pennies

I have loved the idea of the Disney pressed pennies, but could never figure out what to do with them after getting home.


Well the other day, I was looking at one and was like, Got IT!  They would make cute necklace charms!  So I grabbed my Modge Podge Dimensional, and covered the pressed side of the penny.  After letting it sit for 3 hours, I was ASTONISHED at the level detail that the Modge Podge brought out!


So after I Modge Podged a few more, I decided to head out to Michaels to get some bails to attach them to.  Well I couldn’t find them.  I even tried Wal Mart and Target too.  No one had the bails I was looking for (Glue On Bails).  So I get a little bummed and think, well I am going to have to finish this project after I get some bails shipped to me.  The next day, my daughter and I decided to skim WalMarts selection of bails again and made the choice to pick up a pinch bail and try it out.


I didn’t want to punch a hole into my pressed pennies, so I added more Modge Podge to the back and pinched the bail on.  I waited the three hours before handling again to see how it turned out.  And while it wasn’t exactly what I wanted, it did the trick and left me pleased with the results.  I will post pictures of the next set with the glue on bails when they arrive.
