Although Casey is away enjoying her fabulous honeymoon, we did manage to sneak in a little craft/blogging time together before she left. As an “extra credit” component of our Spring Cleaning To-Do List Printable, we decided to add an item to the list that was begging for a mini makeover– our car keys. In between girl talk and blog planning, we cleaned up our keys, downsized, added color and DIY-ed two different types of keychains.Our keys are now color-coordinated, a lot lighter, organized and pretty! We’ll share all of the details on how we added color to our keys and the DIY leather keychain tomorrow. Today we are going to start with a DIY tassel keychain that is perfect for a BUSY GIRL! The blue DIY tassel keychain literally takes about 5 minutes and less than $7 in supplies. We bought our supplies at JoAnn Fabrics but any local craft shop should have the supplies you need (in the Jewelry making section). Pretty cute right? Plus, we love that you can make the tassel keychain with the beads, colors and embellishments that YOU love.
So, all you need is a keychain clasp, a tassel embellishment, and beads — all which are sold in the Jewelry making section at a craft store. We recycled the wire that the beads came on so we didn’t have to buy any wire, however, if you want to make a few keychains with the beads we would suggest buying a small amount of jewelry wire. We cut the bead wire to release the beads.We used that wire and double knotted it to attach the tassel. Then we strung on a few of the beads and tied the other end of the wire to the keychain. We cut off the excess wire on each end and (not shown) strung that little piece of wire back into the last bead so the short little end piece isn’t exposed. Then we clipped our DIY tassel keychain onto our colorful keys! It was seriously that easy. Maybe 10 minutes…. tops!Make sure you check back tomorrow for all of the details on how to make the DIY Monogrammed leather keychain and color-coded keys!
