Do you ever lose your keys at the bottom of your bag or on a desk covered with paperwork? Your keys will be so easy to find once you make this fun Button Charm Key Chain!
To make this Button Charm Key Chain you will need the following materials:
An Assortment of Buttons
Key Chain Ring
6 to 7 Inches of Chain
Large Jump Rings
Here are some of the buttons I used on this project:
Button Jar Green 540001009
Buttons Jar Blue 540001007
Glamour Gems Lime 520005224
Flower Blue Blooms 550001554
Flower Lime Blooms 550001553
Crafting with Buttons Traditional Hearts 470001302
Favorite Findings A Step Back in Time 550000326
You will also need the following tools:
Needle Nose Pliers
Chain Nose Pliers
To begin, attach the key ring and charm to the top and the bottom of the chain.
Next, add jump rings to all the buttons and leave the rings open. Use a variety of button shapes, sizes and styles to keep it interesting.
Finally the fun part! Use the jump rings to attach the buttons to the chain and close the jump rings. For some of the smaller button shapes, you may want to use multiple jump rings to attach the button to the chain. Make sure you mix it up and alternate the colors and sizes as you add the buttons to the chain.
Do you have a signature color? Then try using buttons in different shades of that color to create a key chain that reflects your style! You can also use this Button Charm Key Chain to add some flair to a lunch bag, backpack, or hand bag. Personalize it by swapping out the bead charm for one with your initial.
