Details

We have a tendency to misplace things, especially our keys. This accessory with bright, bouncy fringe and a little charm will help you keep track of yours. Problem solved.

Tools

  • scissors
  • jewelry pliers

Materials

  • chainette fringe in bright pink and yellow
  • silver end caps
  • jump rings
  • split key ring with chain
  • swivel lobster clasp
  • strawberry charm
  • E6000 glue

Time

30 minutes + drying time
Pkf-1 Pin-it%402x

Gather your tools and materials. In addition to the materials included you'll need a pair of scissors and some chain nose pliers.

Pkf-2 Pin-it%402x

Start rolling the chainette fringe from one end. Roll it tightly, coiling it onto itself. This is going to fit into the end cap so measure as you go to figure out the right place to stop rolling. It should fit really tightly into the cap.

Pkf-3 Pin-it%402x

Cut the excess fringe off. Put some glue inside the cap.

Pkf-4 Pin-it%402x

Twist your fringe into the cap. Make sure it goes all the way to the top of the cap.

Pkf-5 Pin-it%402x

Repeat steps 2 through 4 for the pink tassel. Set both tassels aside and let dry.

Pkf-6 Pin-it%402x

Open one silver jump ring. Remember to open north to south not east to west.

Pkf-7 Pin-it%402x

Put the lobster clasp onto the open jump ring. Then add the first ring below the split key ring to the open jump ring.

Pkf-8 Pin-it%402x

Close the open jump ring tightly.

Pkf-9 Pin-it%402x

Open a new jump ring and attach it to the same ring you just attached things to, right below the split key ring.

Pkf-10 Pin-it%402x

Add the yellow tassel onto the open jump ring. Close tightly.

Pkf-11 Pin-it%402x

Open another jump ring, attach to the center link in the chain and add the strawberry charm. Close the jump ring tightly.

Pkf-12 Pin-it%402x

Open the last silver jump ring and attach to the last ring on the split key ring.

Pkf-13 Pin-it%402x

Add the pink tassel onto the open jump ring and close tightly.

Pkf-14 Pin-it%402x

Let your keys shine bright!

This was such a fun project! I love the strawberry detail. Now I will always be able to find my car keys in my purse.

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy! This project was so easy and so much fun! It's nice to have a simple quick craft every now and then.

I thought this was a great way to prevent leaving my keys in odd places...until today when I left them at the grocery store...

I just got my box, and sadly, there are no beads or stones or charms for these projects. but there are two bags of hardware -- the snake chain, cord, and pieces for the key fob. How can I get this missing pieces?

I am so loving the hot pink and yellow combo! I am putting together the La Pouchette I bought from the shop (need my husband's leather punch, which is at home) in the hot pink color. This looks like it will be a perfect match with that for traveling light this spring!

@kimberly we think this would make a perfect bag charm as well. Can't wait to see what you come up with! #makertakes

This was super easy and fun! I'm going to use mine as a bag charm since I have plenty of key chains.

I just finished this and I love it! However, my kit did not include the swivel lobster clasp, the key chain is usable with out it but do you know where I could get one? I think it would make it easier to use. Thanks!
