Post image for DIY Day with Sodderbug Photo Charms

Welcome to DIY Day! Are you ready to share your latest project? We have 2 fantastic prizes this week! One for the linker-uppers and one for the commenters!

If you’re new here, every Tuesday we get together to share our newest DIY projects. I’m really flexible about what constitutes a DIY project. A furniture makeover, an outdoor project, a seasonal craft, some new artwork…maybe a great recipe?

Sodderbug can turn your favorite photo into a beautiful charm that you can wear and treasure.


What mom or grandma wouldn’t love a photo of her babies or grand babies as a precious charm. It’s like a modern day locket. And since each charm is double-sided, you could put the kids names on the other side.


But the options don’t stop at a photo. You could make a charm with your favorite bible verse, your blog button or your kiddo’s artwork. Check out the Sodderbug site for tons of fantastic ideas.

I’m wild about the idea of making a charm for a college-bound high-school senior. Wouldn’t this make a fantastic graduation gift? If she’s already in college, you could put her sorority on the other side.

Two lucky winners will receive a custom-made charm necklace from Sodderbug. All you have to do is link up a post to DIY Day this week OR leave a comment on this post and you’re entered to win!

Now let’s see those projects! Please…

  1. Include a short description of your DIY project in parenthesis after the name of your blog. This helps people browse the HUGE number of projects. And you get MORE clicks!
  2. Link to your specific post, not the main page of your blog. I HATE having to delete these. It makes me feel like a big meanie.
  3. Link to this party from your post so everyone can get in on the fun.

Hi Kimba–

My entry this week is a simple little craft, but I’m happy with the way it turned out. Thanks for giving me (and hundreds of us!) a forum to show what we’ve been up to and to learn from others!

And thanks to Sodderbug for this great giveaway!
