Good luck charms mean something different to everybody. It all depends on what you find to be lucky. Some people carry around a lucky coin, some have angel figurines everywhere and others stay traditional with leprechauns, a pot of gold or a four-leaf clover. All it takes is your imagination.

  1. 1

    Good luck charms are usually something small you carry around with you. You can put a good luck charm object on a necklace, bracelet or keychain. Or you can carry around a small charm-like object by itself or in a bag that closes tightly. Decide which way you want to carry around your charm.

  2. 2

    Use an object you consider to be good luck, if you have one. Say your grandma gave you an old ring of hers or you have a charm that was once part of a charm bracelet. For anything that's small and already has a hole in it, you can attach your charm to a piece of string for an easy good luck charm.

  3. 3

    Use particular stones that are considered good luck, if you're having trouble coming up with ideas. Jade and rose quartz are both involved in feng shui, for example. Buy one of these stones and put it in a bag that closes. You can also buy pre-made feng shui bags online. Any sort of good-luck charm can go in a bag like this to carry around, too.

  4. 4

    Make any of your favourite lucky objects a necklace or talisman by drilling a hole through the middle of it. As long as the object won't fall apart or be ruined by adding a hole, this is a great way to make a good luck charm. Depending on how thick the object is, your normal power drill can do a good job. If you have a lucky coin or token, a simple hole through the middle will do the trick.

  5. 5

    Go to a bead or craft shop if you want to make an entire good-luck necklace or bracelet with stones or beads. Here you'll find plain necklaces with clasps, and the employees can help you attach your good-luck charm to the necklace if it's a tough job.

Tips and warnings

  • For ideas, ask your family and friends which objects they consider to be lucky. You might find something you didn't think of before.
  • Be very careful if you use a power drill. If you're not accustomed to using such equipment, have somebody supervise or drill the hole for you.
