Capturing a memory on film is always exciting. Being able to carry it around and show it off, is even more exciting. I have a few people that I wanted to give gifts to this year so I thought I would make them Photo Key Chains with their family pictures on them. I even made one with a school logo on it for my daughter school principle and one for my daughters soccer mom. They are a lot of fun to make.
You will need.
- Key rings
- Fast Fix Decoupage by Beacon
- A Photo
- Small metal jewelry rings
The first thing you need it to decide which image you would like to use. I printed it in a few different sizes to see which one would fit best or check the packaging for exact size for printing.
Now, figure out how long you want the chain to be. I cut the chain to about 2” long and 1” long.
Use the pliers to open one of the links in the chain to get your desired length.
I added a ring to the end of the chain where I will add the pendent and one to make it easy to attach to the key ring.
Use the pliers to close the ring.
Once, I finished preparing the chains I added the embellishments. I found some metal die cut words in the dollar bins at Michael’s Craft Store, pearls that I had from necklace and the pendant to add the picture to. Once, I decided which ones to pair together, I added a ring to the embellishments the same way I did to the chains above.
Then, decide which pendent you will be adding your picture too. Use the pendant to trace the picture. Then cut out the picture.
Next, I used Fast Fix Decoupage by Beacon and add a small drop on the pendant and placed the picture on it. Make sure the picture is flat.
Once, the picture was positioned how I wanted it I add enough fast fix decoupage to cover the entire picture. It will be runny so be careful if moving the pendent before dry.
Here are a few pictures while the pendants are drying. If you notice any bubbles use a toothpick to drag them to the side. Be careful not to touch the picture.
The finished Photo Key Chains!
I can’t wait to give these as gifts. I would be super excited to receive one myself!
