Keyring/Pendant Making With Dough
By Khadija's Creative Mind on January 3rd, 2014 A keyring is used by everyone of us and its an item which we hold in hand almost everyday..isn’t it? our car keys to our drawer’s..there is mostly hanging a boring/simple type chain with any ring..it doesn’t seem so good, specially when you have a tiny space of creativity in your big head..haha.. well here while talking about myself I must be telling you about one thing first..Sometimes my creative job feels serious too.. want to know how?ok lets see how! whenever I have something simple in my hand(like a simple keychain etc.), my family & friends taunt me in a fun way that I should be having my ordinary things in a more creative way..they all know me very well how lazy I am sometimes but see how they dont stop saying just to see something creative by Me..haha..so I laugh at their sweet taunt & words..and then it inspire & encourage me to try something creative with any of that simple thing..
So here today the keychain/keyring I am sharing is also a part of a story, once my keychain broke & I left the keys inside cupboard because I never lock my cupboard. when my friend saw that broken keychain, she ask me why not you make anything beautiful which will be looking more well at your cupboard lock place. So I thought I must be working on her suggestion now! see what I have done & how I have made this keychain which can also be used as a pendant.. lets see..
This keychain is made of homemade dough, once I make some big amount of dough, I made so many little crafty thingies with that. This key chain is also a part of my homemade dough creations.pearl & clay pendant with this engraved stamp texture design.. there some dough was extra & I make the texture over it but didn’t create anything with that piece. It was saved in my crafty space from a few months. so I tried to create this keychain out of that little piece. and the fun thing is, it can also be used as a pendant..isn’t it..?
for making this clay/dough keychain, you will need to have some dough with the texture over it. then let it dry.
Make an outline with glitter glue. I use green, golden & red color glitter glue for making it more bling-ful.. and the turquoise rhinestone is for fixing in the middle. I use UHU adhesive glue for pasting. u can also use mod podge or any other transparent glue.
This is an easy idea of kids crafts or gift item. You can also gift these kind of little gifts to your family and friends, so whenever they will be seeing your handmade love.. they will definitely be appreciating your handmade stuff. so keep creating & keep giving these kind of easy gifts to your loved ones. sometimes less is always More..
