How to Make a Locket at Home. If you are looking for a rainy day craft or simply wish to create a fun, simple piece of jewelry with your child, you can use basic art supplies to make a locket at home. A locket is a necklace that features a heart-shaped pendant. The pendant can open to reveal a hidden picture inside, usually of a love or someone close to the heart. A homemade locket can be customized with any photo you wish and made to open and close at will.

How to Make a Locket at Home :

  1. Draw a heart using a pencil that is 3 inches tall and 3 inches wide on a piece of yellow construction paper that has been folded in half. Position the heart so that the left side is laying against the folded edge, to later keep the locket intact.
  2. Cut the heart shape out of the double-layered yellow construction paper, making sure not to cut the folded side so that the hearts stay connected once they separate from the rest of the paper. Discard the scraps.
  3. Draw any design you’d like on the front of the locket using a fine-tipped black marker. You can make as simple or as complex a design you’d like, including any words that you’d like to have “engraved” on the locket.
  4. Secure a small photo of your choice to the inside of the locket using a glue stick. If you don’t have a photo to use, you can also use the marker to draw whoever or whatever you wish.
  5. Create two holes on the locket using a small hole punch: one on the right side, and one on the top left corner of the heart.
  6. Cut two lengths of yellow yarn. One piece should measure to be 15 inches long and the other should be 1 inch long.
  7. Loop the 1 inch piece of yarn through the hole on the side of the locket, tying it into a bow (not a knot) to close the locket.
  8. Loop the 15 inch piece of yarn through the hole in the top left corner of the heart, knotting the ends together to form a necklace.
