Lucky Penny Pendants with Tamara Berg
In celebration of National Lucky Penny Day today on May 23, Tamara Berg demonstrates how to make a lucky charm. After making your penny shiny and new, you stamp letters into it, creating an indent to shade in with a marker. The pendant can dangle from a necklace or be added to a keychain to bring you luck wherever you go. To continue the cent-sational festivities, Tamara and other "Family" members play a trivia game of "Who Wants To Be a Cent-onaire?"
