Stamped Washer Necklaces

I found a great how-to on making these stamped washer necklaces over at Not So Idle Hands.  Super easy and simple.  I hammered these while I was working my garage sale this weekend.  All you need is the stamp set, some washers, a hammer, and a permanent marker. Oh, and a ribbon of some sort and bead if that’s your style.
I didn’t take how-to pictures – follow the link mentioned before for that.  But basically you just hold the letter stamp, hammer the top of it, then color in where you stamped on the washer with permanent marker (wiping off the excess).  It’s a little tricky not to get the stamp to move while you’re hammering on it, but as I practiced I got better.
I think there are endless possibilities. But I thought I was genuis to make a graduation gift:
If you’d like to make them you can find the metal stamps at Harbor Freight and washers at any home improvement store. 
So go grab some supplies and crank out a few of these!  More Stamped Washer IDEAS HERE.

    Awesome. I love getting crafty. I have a harbor freight close to my house. Thanks for posting this. I’ll love to do this project. I’ve seen similar necklaces for sale places but I’d love to make my own. I’m always looking for a way to save money too so this will be great! I’m going to make a blog post to link to this post too. Thanks again for posting this!

    I saw these on Not So Idle Hands and made some for Mothers’ Day. I still need to blog about them though. I love how yours turned out!

    Mandy, great project, but I think you forget to link back to the Boardwalk Bragfest from your post. Sadly, I’m going to need to remove your link. I would love for you to insert the link on your post and try again!

    Strangely enough, I actually tried this a couple of years ago. But the washers were too hard, the stamps didn’t make more than a faint impression on the washers. What am I doing wrong?
