My daughter’s Girl Scout troop recently held a successful fundraiser to raise money for their trip to Savannah, Georgia next Summer. The moms made team spirit cups, cookies, cupcakes, cake pops, chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate dipped marshmallows, mini cheesecakes, and more! The girls contributed by making colorful friendship bracelets and helping out on the day of the sale. Despite the really rainy day, it was really successful! Some of these girls are awesome saleswomen.

My contributions to the event included some of my handmade polymer clay earrings, a batch of chocolate chip cookies, and these adorable tumbler charms that I made with supplies on Amazon! Keep reading to find out how I made them in three easy steps.

If you are like most moms and girls in my town, you don’t go anywhere without your Stanley tumbler. I personally carry what my daughter would call an “off brand” tumbler that’s, in my opinion, just as good at keeping my beverages icy cold. She, on the other hand, received this pretty pink Stanley Flip from the Easter Bunny last Sunday, along with a matching pink PJ sleep short set an initial keychain, and a pink Unbrush. Can you say “spoiled rotten”? (As an Amazon Associate, I earn commission from qualifying purchases)

Step 1: First, decide how long you want your charm chains to be and use the wire snips to cut the chain into as many pieces as you’d like. I made mine about 5″ long and was able to make over 70 charms. Don’t be alarmed if you break a few chain links in the process.

Step 2: Next, using the needle nose pliers, open a jump ring and place it on one end of the chain, making sure the chain link is not broken from the previous step. While the jump ring is still open, add your charm of choice. Close the jump ring.

Step 3: Finally, using the needle nose pliers, open another jump ring and place it on the opposite end of the chain, adding a claw clasp. Close the jump ring.

That’s it! Easy Peasy.
