DIY Clay Letter Keychain 

Who knew being an adult came with so many keys? Between your house, car, and work keys, it’s hard to keep track of it all! Especially when you’re rushing out the door…

I, Anusha, wanted to create a modern DIY clay letter keychain to make my keys easily identifiable. First of all, who doesn’t love keychains?! Secondly, these babies are so simple to make.  And there’s a bonus: they look a little like macarons! You can make a tag for each set of keys or simply create a monogram keychain for yourself.

Roll the clay in the palm of your hands to form a ball.

On a clean working surface, roll the clay to about 1/4 inch thickness with a rolling pin.

Using a circle cookie cutter or small lid, punch out circles from the clay — first in one clay color than in a complimentary color for the second piece.

Use alphabet cookie cutters to punch out letters in the clay. You can use H for house, W for work and C for car (or try L  for locker, G for garage, etc.) Finally, with a poking tool or straw, punch out a small circle where you will attach a keychain ring later. Bake the clay according to package instructions (I baked mine at 200º F for 10 minutes each).  Once it’s cooled, insert two pieces of colored clay on a keychain ring!

    It’s only for kids, isn’t it? plus it doesn’t look professional at all
