Make Your Own Disney Pressed Penny Bracelet

Disney Pressed Penny Bracelet

One of the most affordable souvenirs to be found in Disney parks is the pressed penny. There are lots of different characters and attractions available, and they're easy to carry home. As a bonus, it's kind of fascinating to watch one being made. But do you ever wish there was something fun you could do with them once you're home? I've got just the project for you — a Disney pressed penny bracelet!

To make this one-of-a-kind Disney pressed penny bracelet you'll need:

  • 1 pressed penny
  • 1 Jewelry chain
  • 4 rings
  • 1 bracelet closure

You'll also need a hammer, a nail and two sets of pliers.

I found this set in a copper color so it matches the penny, but you could certainly make this with any color of hardware.

Measure 3/8" from the ends of the penny. Mark with a dot with a permanent marker. With a piece of wood underneath and the penny face down, hammer the nail through the penny at each mark. Flip the penny over and hammer the nail through from the other side. Repeat until the edges of the hole are smooth so it won't catch on clothing or scratch the wearer.

Grasp the ring on both sides with the two sets of pliers. Twist in opposite directions to open the ring. This keeps the ring stronger and easier to close than pulling the two sides away from each other.

Add the jump rings to both sides of the penny, leaving the rings open. Do the same with the closure, then lay end to end and measure. Mine is 3".

Measure your wrist. Add 1" and subtract the measurement of the penny/closure. For me, my wrist was 7", plus 1", minus 3", for a total of 5". Divide that number in half and cut six chains to that length.

Hook three chain ends on the ring on one side of the penny. Close the ring by twisting back into place. Repeat on the other side of the penny.

Add the ring and closure to each end the same way.
