Loved One Locket

Hi! Crafters!

This is another crafter for kids to make for Valentines or Mother’s day. Again, this is another project which uses upcycle item.

Materials:  2 twist-off bottle caps, colored nail polish, felt scraps, small photo, glue, scissors, and silk cord,


NOTE:  They might not want to use their mom’s favorite/more expensive polish.

Paint both bottle caps with the nail polish inside and outside.   Paint one side at a time and let dry for 15 minutes.   You may need to add a second coat.

Cut a small strip of felt that matches the nail polish or you mom’s favorite color. Glue one end inside cap to form a hinge.  This will allow the locket to close and open.

Cut out and glue another piece of felt for the inside of one cap and glue the picture after making it fit in the other cap.

Make sure the felt hinge is at the top of the locket.

Your photo is face-up in the cap that will hang against your mom’s neck.

Option:  Cut out a small heart with the felt and glue to the outside of the locket.

When the glue has dried, tie a silk cord around the hinge of the locket, and then tie the ends together to form a loop large enough to fit an adult head,

Share your ideas on this or anything here on the blog either here or e-mail me at  I look forward to hearing from you!
