Mother's Day Craft: Cameo Necklace

Cameo Necklace

Total Time Needed: 30 Minutes or less

Mom: Want to show off a photo of the very one who makes you an eligible celebrant of this springtime holiday? This necklace works like an open-faced locket: nostalgia and jewelry all in one.

Kids: This thoughtful present couldn't be simpler. It's crafted from a metal-rimmed key tag, a pretty ribbon -- and your photo, of course!


  • Baby picture
  • Metal-rimmed key tag (or marking tag)
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Ribbon


Cameo Necklace - Step 1

Color-copy a favorite baby picture, reducing it to fit a metal-rimmed key tag (also called play or marking tags; available at Staples and art supply stores). Cut out the picture and use a glue stick to adhere it to the tag, then use the glue stick to add glitter or other decorations, such as a tiny bow. Loop a length of thin ribbon through the tag's hole or ring (you could also loop several tags along the same ribbon for a multicharm necklace), then tie the ends of the ribbon together.
