I was searching for a necklace like this one and couldn’t seem to find one that was under $40 or $50!! So, I came up with the idea to hit up hobby lobby and see what I could come up with! I only paid around $11 for these materials because I did have a 40% off coupon, which is always available on their website! But even full price, these materials are only $18, which is a huge improvement from $40-$50.
You can also grab similar items on Amazon and Michael’s (plus get discount Michaels Giftcards from Cardpool, at the time of writing this they had over 100 cards at 16% off. Then use a Michael’s coupon on top of that.)
This necklace is also super simple to make and definitely very meaningful, so let’s get started on how to make this adorable gift or something special for yourself!
–18″ Necklace Chain (Hobby Lobby, $2.99 or Amazon)
–Charm Me Story Locket (Available in multiple colors, Hobby Lobby, $8.99 or Amazon)
–Multicolor Gem Beads (Hobby Lobby, $3.99 or Amazon)
-Charm Me, Made with Love Heart Charm, optional (Hobby Lobby, $1.99 or Amazon)
Step 1: Find birthstones for necessary months, these gems aren’t necessarily made for birthstones but they worked pretty well for me! Simply open up the circle locket, and place the gems inside. (note these type of gem have a silver backing, I might try super gluing two of the same color back to back in order that the silver would never show.
Step 2: Also place made with love charm inside locket and close locket. It has a magnetic closure so it stays closed very well!
Step 3: Thread Locket onto necklace chain and Voila! You are all done!!
