Make Your own Anthropologie Inspired Keychain

Would you believe that I don’t have a keychain? I mean, my keys are on a ring but I don’t have anything cute or decorative holding my keys. Well, I just changed all that! I found this adorable keychain at Anthropologie and decided to make my own.Here’s the original Anthropologie keychain that was my inspiration:

Supplies needed to make your own Anthro DIY keychain:

Step one:  Cut or punch a one inch circle from paper.  Stamp, draw or stick a monogram on it.
Step two:  Apply Dimensional Magic (DM) to the center of the monogram, and press the round clear charm on top.  Let it dry.
Step three:  Flip the charm over and apply DM to the back.
Step four:  When it is dry, cut a strip of foil tape to fit around the charm.  Press the edges of the foil firmly down.  This gives you the look of soldering without all the work!

Step five:  Take enough links of chain to fit the length of the keychain.  Cut the top and bottom links of the cut chain, then attach the chain to the keychain. Close the links with your jewelry pliers.

Step six:  Use jump rings to attach the charms to the chain.

Finally, attach the monogrammed pendant to the jump ring at the base of the keychain.

Now you have a pretty, custom, monogrammed key chain that you can make in any color or style you like!  These would make great gifts, too.  Have fun creating!
