My parents just gave me a set of keys!!! To make sure that I would not lose them (something i did on the very first day I had them), I decided to make some really creative and unique key chains that I knew nobody else would have. I came up with three really creative ideas that worked out really well. So, do you guys want to hear them? I’m going to assume so because you are reading this post.
- TV Show Keychains
I love to watch TV, don’t you? Like most people, I have favorites. Some of mine include “The Librarians”, “Stranger Things”, “Death in Paradise” and BBC’s “Class”. To save some money and grief (you can’t find things for some shows anywhere!), i decided that i was going to make them myself.
You will need string or a jump ring, cardstock or paperboard, clear tape, patterned duct tape and printouts of TV show logos
Step One. Select some TV show logos and paste them into a Word file. Print
Step Two. Cut out a piece of cardstock or paperboard (the cardboard from cereal boxes) and cover in duct tape. Punch a hole in the top.
Step Three. Tape on your logo. Thread a string or a jump ring through the hole. Attach to your key to finish
2. Tumblr Inspired: Pixel Speech Bubble Keychains
I love pixel speech bubbles. They are totally awesome. When i made keycahins, i just had to have some.
You will need pixel speech bubbles with sassy sayings (ex. only Librarians can touch my keys, the sass is strong with this one, excuse me while i fangirl and don’t let anyone tell you your not a Unicorn), clear tape and string
Step One. Print and cut out your speech bubbles. Cut a length of string that you desire.
Step Two. Thread one end of the string through the hole on your key or the jump ring its attached to and then put the two ends on the blank side of the speech bubble. Cover both sides in tape to finish.
3. Quote Keychain
I just love inspirational quotes! Everybody does, right? I used a quote from a Fireflight song called “Unbreakable” for this DIY. Forget the fear/its just a crutch/that tried to hold you back and turn your dreams to dust/all you need to do is just/ trust – Fireflight, Unbreakable.
You will need duckling tape (mini duct tape or washi tape), string and a quote printout.
Step One. Cut tou your quote and rim in duct tape. Leave the tape at the top open.
Step Two. Thread one end of the string through the jump ring or hole in the key and connect both ends to the tape. Fold the tape over and cut off the excess
