This quick and easy D.I.Y. was inspired by this penny present idea I stumbled upon in Pinterest.
Metal punch (I bought mine from Amazon–looks like this)
First, I raided the penny jar and selected three pennies–minted the years of my birth, my husband’s birth and my daughter’s birth. Next, I used my metal punch to punch a hole into each penny. Then I attached a brass jump ring to each penny.
You can attach them to a charm bracelet, or wear them on a necklace. Love it!
