How to Make a Memory Charm to Remember a Passed Loved One

This weekend my mom and I created a fun craft. I wanted to surprise her and make something in honor of my sweet Granny who passed away two weeks ago. I kept several of the flowers from her funeral and dried some of the petals so we could make charms. I was so excited about the idea of this, and I am glad that they turned out great!

Here is how we did it:

Supplies:

  • Dried flowers (I picked yellow, peach and raspberry petals)
  • Charm or earring that has a place for resin (Available at any craft store)
  • Epoxy (Available at any craft store)
  • Toothpick

Steps:
1. Start placing the flower petals inside the charm. It is easier to use smaller pieces. Try to keep the petals as flat as possible so it’s not heaping over and your charm will dry flat.

3. It will only take 20 minutes for the epoxy to dry — and wah la — a beautiful charm that holds a dear memory. I am adding mine to my keychain so I can see it every day!

PS: My mom loved it and it was such a special moment and memory that we shared together.

Busy Beadz also makes this type of charm/jewlery if you don’t want to make it yourself. Alex is the best and her products are beautiful!
