I've been playing around making button themed keyrings recently.
This is the first that's ready to share.
Want to make your own, for yourself or as a cute little present? This is what you need:
- A keyring with a chain (mine were saved from old keyrings but you can buy them like that)
- Jump rings (mine are 7mm)
- Small buttons (you need ones where the gap between the hole and the edge is smaller than your jump rings)
- 2 x pliers
pop it through one of the button holes
and one chain on the keyring.
Then just close it up.
Easy, then do it again with another button.
Just add as many buttons as you like in whatever colours and combinations you like.
All my chain keyrings were reused old ones so they are slightly different lengths and chain types.
These really were easy peasy lemon squeezy to make and came out kind of cute. I love buttons, and collect button crafts on a pinterest board if you want to check out more ideas. I'm now thinking these little button clusters would be nice on a long pendant or make sweet bag charms (does anyone else still like a bag charm or are they really so 2008 darling?!)
I've got a few more button themed key rings in the pipeline that I'll be sharing soon, hope you like buttons too!
