Scrap Your Stash guest post: fabric scrap key chain tutorial

She’s doing a Scrap Your Stash series right now and there have been some awesome tutorials using scraps, with many more to come! I think I may be in love with these adorable little key chains. So much in love that I made a bunch with no plans for them. After all, I don’t need 7 key chains…but I have friends and family who do! Whether they know that or not. lol. Remember that leather belt I found in my local RSPCA shop ?

And remember I decided to cut into it when I made my rainbow necklace ? Well its come in useful once again ! Vous vous souvenez ma ceinture en cuir trouvée dans une boutique d’occasion ? Celle que j’avais découpée pour créer mon collier arc-en-ciel ?! Encore une fois, elle se rend utile ! Oversized tassels are a massive bag accessory lately and would you believe they’re the ea-si-est thing to DIY in the world ?

Les glands surdimensionés (ahem… comment dire…) sont un accessoire à sac très populaire dernièrement et, encore une fois, les faire soi-même c’est plus que facile. To make your own oversized leather tassles, YOU WILL NEED : Pour créer tes propres glands surdimensionnés, IL TE FAUDRA : – A long strip of leather – I urge you to take a look at belts in your local charity shop, so much cheaper ! / Un long morceau de cuir – Allez voir les ceintures dans un magasin d’occaz près de chez vous, c’est beaucoup moins cher !

Xx Like this: When we got our new home, I made a "his" and "hers" keychain. ...And later, because of several guests coming and going, I made a couple of spares.

Because it's a summer house, I made something colorful and easy to find in beach-bags. Here they are all "hanging-out" on the dog's tail hooks: HERS keychain 12" of nylon cord, a split ring and a superball... * drill a hole in the superball (need to be a wide hole, because the nylon cord needs to pass twice inside the ball) detailed tutorial on the superballs necklace; * tie a knot on the bottom of the superball, and use a match to burn the ends * tie another knot at the top, insert a split ring DONE! HIS keychain. Wooden Bead Keychains [Easy level tutorial] 3 weeks until Christmas.

Happy Monday friends!

Recently I told you all about how I have been really liking small accents such as tassels. I came up with a pretty color block tassel that you could attach to a purse, pillow, anything! I made mine into a key chain. To make the tassel I cut twelve 5 inch pieces of faux leather cord. Next I taped them down evenly, with about an inch of the cord on either end. I've got quite a thing for tassels lately...

A couple weeks ago, I made this phone tassel phone charm for my friend Debbie for Day 3 of her Advent Calendar. When I was younger and cellphones were still relatively novel, I had so much fun picking out phone charms for my parents' phones (to their indifference). Many smartphones, in particular iPhones now, don't have that little hole/notch for hooking a cellphone charm through anymore. Some genius then came up with this awesome headphone dust plug alternative so adding dingly-dangly charms to your smartphone can still be made possible. I've become (re)obsessed with a stash of metallic leather I had in my craft supplies.

(While the exact pack is no longer available, I've linked to other options below.) It started last year with my DIY leather business card holders, then my DIY leather iPhone case a few weeks ago, and now? Cute keychains using own of my favorite DIY tricks, the magic braid. The reason this braid is magical is because you can braid a single piece of leather without any loose ends, and once you work out all the looping, you're left with a braid. With these keychains, my bag is now filled with metallic leather accessories!

We use them all day long, so let's try to add a little fun to our key chain.

I love these DIY key rings, they are stylish and quite easy to make. It would be so cool to have all the zoo animals hanged in my key box! And how great is this ideas of drawing faces on wooden beads? I hope you will have fun making new key chain, don't hesitate to share your projects in comment! If your like it, please, share and make your friends enjoy this post! I’m lovin the look of the Palo Alto Tassel Key Chain at Anthropologie!

Leather is one of the most versatile products to craft with. We love using it in both traditional ways and finding new uses for it. You've probably seen it popping up in a variety of colors, and it's making its way into crafting, home decor, furniture (other than the sofas and upholstery we've seen for decades), clothing, etc. It's obviously been around for a loooong time and been used in just about every way imaginable. We are especially excited about the trend of brightly colored leathers used in home decor and fashion. Today we're super excited to teach you how to make a really simple, cute and inexpensive leather tassel that is perfect for adorning a bag, using as a keychain or even putting on a chain for a cute necklace. Supplies:-a 8.5 x11" sheet of leather (We found ours at Michaels that was already cut to size.) First, you'll cut about an inch off of the long (11") side of the sheet. Looking for a simple weekend project?

Got ya covered! Take five minutes and give your keys a facelift with this simple wooden keychain! I’ve been trying to go through my overflowing crafting closet and use up leftover supplies to make some simple, useful projects for the past few weeks. I’ve spent too much time staring at all the piled up craft stuff thinking, “Okay, what could I make with this? Nothing? What you need: -Wooden beads -Leather Lace -Paint -Paintbrush How to make it: -Paint beds if desired and let dry. Xo. I have been holding onto these beautiful brass swivel hooks to make keychains for ages.
