Stamped Washer Necklaces Tutorial

First: Gather Your Supplies
You will need:
A heavy hammer
Washers
1/8" Steel Stamper Set
Sharpie
Baby Wipe
Ribbon, Chain or Leather to tie Necklace
Crimps (Optional)
Toggle (Optional

Second: Take your washers out to your front/back porch.
You need a hard surface to strike the Washer.

Third: Position a letter then hit the stamp really hard -
If you can do it once - GREAT! if not, steady your hand and make sure
you don't move the stamp and hit it a couple more times.
Repeat for each letter.

Fourth: Fill in the letters with your Sharpie.
It is okay if you color outside the lines - just use a
wet wipe and wipe off the extra marker.


Fifth: Use your ribbon, chain or leather and loop it through the washer.

Sixth: Tie the ends in a knot or attach a toggle.

I like the toggle look much better and it is easier to
put on and take off.


Enjoy!


Tips:
I Bought my stamp set at Harbor Freight for 5.99.
You can order them on-line but I just went to the store.

My good Friend, Michelle over at A little Tipsy Blog made them with me.
You can read her version here.
