Make yourself a Lucky Penny Ring DIY to remember 2012 or another important date, with this simple and fun DIY.

DIY Penny Ring Feature


Supplies to make your DIY Penny Ring:

  • 1 Lucky penny
  • 2-2.5 inches of small rhinestone trim
  • Wire
  • Pliers
  • Super glue
  • Something to wrap your wire around (I used the handle from my garlic press)

DIY Penny Ring Supplies
step 1
Measure your rhinestone trim around your penny to the exact measurement and cut.

step 2
Lay your rhinestone trim on a flat surface on its side.

Take your penny and add a small amount of super glue to one spot on its side and set it on your rhinestone trim.

Wait about one minute for the glue to hold.

Once your glue is holding, keep adding glue to the side of your penny and attaching your rhinestone trim.

You can do this on a flat surface to make sure your trim and your penny are flush with each other.

TIP: Just keep carefully moving your penny and trim to make they dont stick to your surface.

Keep gluing until your rhinestone trim is glued all the way around your penny.DIY Penny Ring

step 3
Take your wire and whatever youre using to wrap it around, I used the handle from my garlic press. Use whatever is closest to your finger size.

Wrap your wire around it 4 times and leave about a one inch tail and cut your wire.

Pull your wire off your handle and wrap this tail end around your wrapped wires to hold them together.

Make sure your loose ends are on the outside of your ring.DIY Penny Ring Band

step 4
Take your penny and place it face down on a smooth surface and put super glue in the middle on the back side.

Take your wire ring and place the wrapped side into the glue.

You will need to hold it in place for a minute or two until the glue holds and then let it dry for about an hour, to make sure it really holds.DIY Penny Ring FinalDIY Penny Ring Close UpDIY Penny Ring Photo

This is about as simple as a cocktail ring gets. But with a shiny penny and lots of rhinestones its definitely not short on sparkle.

I used a 2012 penny but you could make your DIY Penny Ring using any date thats important to you.

Have fun with it!

  1. This is amazing! Love your site! Hellos from Romania! :) <3

  2. this is sooo cute and awesome…what gauge of wire is used for the ring part?
    thanks so much for sharing

    • Hi Teresa,
      Thank you so much!
      I used 20 gauge wire for the ring part.


  3. How has the glue held up? Has the penny stayed attached? Lovely ring! :)

  4. Been meaning to try this for ages and I finally did! I used a thicker wire than you did, I think, so I found two turns around my holder worked really well. Thank you so much for this page!

  5. I was born in 1958. The last year of the wheat pennies. I’ve collected wheat pennies since I was in Jr. High. Eons ago. I have a few from my birth year. What better way to use one than to make one of your blinged lucky penny ring. Now I just have to remember where I put them….

  6. Its a great idea to make ring with penny and your way of express is wonderful and we will also try the same. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  7. Hello, I have practiced on making the penny ring and I have a question. Did you use regular super glue? I did, and two people told me that the ring fell apart when they dropped it. I love the ring it is beautiful, thank you for the lovely idea.
