Pressed pennies are some of Walt Disney World’s cheapest souvenirs, starting at a whopping $.51 each. Kids and adults alike collect them every year. We have scoured the Internet looking for ideas for using your pressed pennys when you get back from vacation. Nothing fights Disney Post Vacation Depression Syndrome (DPVDS) like a piece of jewelry! Especially if you make it yourself for cheap. But if you’re not crafty or have a lot of free time, we found several Etsy stores guaranteed to help you purchase something adorable.
On a website called the reImagination Station, the author has a section called Homespun by Laura, where she posted detailed instructions for making thus beautiful bracelet. For photos and really detailed instructions, easy enough that I could probably be successful, stop by the reImagination Station.
On a website called Cherish Home Every Day ,the author’s son created a pressed penny belt. While not jewelry, the belt is still pretty cool and would definitely accentuate other pressed penny jewelry.
Go to Cherish Home Every Day to see how her son put the belt together. it’s looks too complicated for my low craft skills, but some of you are far craftier than moi.
