Cracker Jack Fun

When my mom saw the key necklace I made for my sister, she wanted one of her own, but with a twist.

She gave me this great American Tourister luggage key, but also wanted me to work in some super fun vintage Cracker Jack charms. Each charm has a special meaning, so it makes the necklace even more special.

I started by attaching the key and a few beads to a chain with jump rings.

Next, I decided how I wanted to arrange the charms, and attached them with jump rings as well.

This is a super simple way to make a unique and personal necklace. I love that this was easy to make but still full of whimsical, vintage goodness!

look for your own Cracker Jack charms at flea markets, junk shops, and on eBay!
