Nap Time Craft: Heart Keyring

valentines day heart keyring

Before Harper started school I had no idea of the level of blinging kids go to with their book bags. They pimp them up with stickers and SO many keyrings. I keep meaning to get Harper a keyring (or four) to up her book-bag game, but it’s one of those things I only remember about after I’ve got back from town.

I was having a sort out of my craft stuff the other day and found a load of clear vinyl material and a few keyring loops, so it was obviously a sign that it was time to make Harper a keyring. These heart ones are filled with sequins, buttons and mini pom poms.

You Will Need:

  • Clear plastic material
  • Baker’s twine (or ribbon)
  • A few beads
  • Sequins, buttons, mini pom poms, picture beads
  • Keyring hoop

1. Draw a heart onto the plastic fabric. I drew around a cookie cutter to make it easy. For each heart, cut two layers.

2. Fold a piece of baker’s twine in half and thread a few beads onto it. Feed the twine in-between the plastic at the top of the heart.

3. Starting on one of the flat sides of the heart, sew on a sewing machine 0.5cm from the edge. Leave approximately 2cm gap and stuff with beads, sequins, buttons and sew the hole shut.

Thread on a keyring hoop and you’re done!

The keyring took about 15 minutes to make and went down well with Harper. So much so that I’ve turned them into V Day cards to sell at the school’s Valentine’s Fair!
