Fun thing to do with Pennies

 Did this project with my Grandkids... ages  11 & 13...A fun thing to do with all those pennies.

You will need pennies (of course)  an anvil (or something flat that is metal) a hammer, some metal letters for stamping (I purchased these at an automotive supply store.. super cheap... 1/8 " in size... extra fine steel wool,  jump rings, copper chain for the necklace... Dremel drill with a 1/16" bit for drilling metal (purchased the bits at the same automotive store.. super cheap)

 Smash the penny with the hammer until very thin..  Stamp with the letters.... initials, etc.  drill hole in top... if the hole is a little rough around the edges use an emery board nail file to smooth out... Make shiny with the steel wool... add the jump ring and chain... voila... a fabulous pendant.
