Party Tricks: Turn Old Lockets Into Photo Place Cards
Always losing your wine glass at a party? So are we. Instead of finding your glass by the shade of your lipstick on the rim, we’ve made some adorable wine charms. These would be fun to make for a family get together (like, um… Thanksgiving of course!) or for the wedding party table at a wedding reception. Or just to keep in your house for your friends ;)
<br/>– lockets (We got ours for $6 at H&M!)
– hoop earrings
– needle nose pliers
1. Remove the chain from the locket using the pliers.
2. Hook an earring onto locket.
3. Curve up the end of the earring so that it fits into the hole.
4. Cut the photo to fit into locket (use your first one as a template for the rest).
5. Put the photo in the locket.
6. Clasp the earring around the stem of your wine glass. Drink up!
We went to H&M for these awesome lockets. They also come in silver.
First you’ll need to remove the chain from the locket by stretching open the jump ring. Stick your pliers into the middle of the loop and then pull them apart. Now you can slide the earring into the hole where the jump ring was attached. We bought earrings from a bead store, but you could also use regular hoop earrings from your jewelry box.
With these earrings, we had to fold up the end to form a hook. Hang onto the end with your pliers and curve that baby up.
Here comes the fun part — adding photos. Choose some fun photos of your guests (if you’re throwing a shindig) and then cut them out to fit into the locket. It might take some trial and error, but once you have the correct size, use that photo as a template to cut out the others.
Hook these adorable charms onto the stems of your wine glasses and then it’s party time. We love these! They are so interactive. When you try to find your glass, it’s also like watching a slideshow of fun photos!
Now that is a stylish wine glass.
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
