DIY Glass Orb Keychain

DIY customized keychains

If you have the choice to buy something that customized or templetized and both are the same price, which one are you going to pick? Right, customized, because we all would all rather have something unique. That’s part of the reason I like DIY projects so much.

These DIY keychains are perfect for customization! They’re quick and easy to make, you can use any design you want and they make great gifts.

I used scrapbook paper for each of my keychains, but you could print out your own designs like I did for the DIY bookmarks a made a few years ago or even use material from a bridesmaids dress for a more sentimental gift. There are a lot of options.

When you’re finished, you’ll have a uniquely designed keychain that you can keep for yourself or give as a gift. You could even order the materials for the keychains and make them on a weekend with friends while drinking some wine (or whatever you like).
