DIY Tutorial: Keychain
We don’t know if it is possible to dream up something more functional, personal and stylish all designed into the same product! These key chains are such a gorgeous statement piece for any handbag, diaper-bag or, of course, set of keys!
The easy instructions and supplies are listed below.
-1 x 60” regular, white cord
-1 x silver keyring and clip
-1 x 22mm wood round bead
-1 x 25mm glacier grey abacus bead
-1 x white siliMAMA coin bead
-1 x robin’s egg 17mm hexagon bead
-1 x 19mm white marble round bead
-1 x 12mm white round bead
-1 x flamingo siliMAMA feather (optional)
1. Fold cord in half. Loop through keyring.
2. Take the two ends of the cord. Squeeze them together. Slowly and carefully burn the ends of the cord together. When the end is slightly warm, press cords together to create a stiff, 1.5” section of hardened cord. This will allow you to double cord through your beads.
3. Feed beads along the cord that is fused together, starting with the 22mm wood round bead, 25mm glacier grey abacus bead, white siliMAMA coin bead, 17mm robin’s egg hexagon bead, 19mm white marble round bead, and ending with the 12mm white round bead.
4. Tightly double knot at the end of the last bead.
5. Cut the strings to final, desired length. Quickly burn the ends to prevent fraying (be quick, so that they do not turn brown!).
6. (OPTIONAL) Slide a flamingo siliMAMA feather onto the round section of the keyring.
7. Be amazed! How easy was that, and how gorgeous is that item you are now holding in your hand?! Attach and enjoy!
