DIY Teddy Bear Lockets

I remember loving lockets as a kid. There’s something so cool and almost magical about a necklace having a secret spot for notes and treasures! One of my favorite toys growing up was a plush puppy dog that had a hidden compartment on her tummy – does anyone else remember those? Today’s DIY locket necklace is just as fun!

I found these plastic teddy bear favors at the dollar store in the baby shower section. They were pretty cute as is (kind of like gummy bears!) but the gold paint keeps the treasures inside invisible to everyone else. What would you keep in your teddy bear locket?
