Hi Nifty Thrifty readers!
My name is Allison and I blog at little lovelies, where I share all sorts of creative things. I am a wife of 6 years and working mom to my 2 year old son. I’ve been blogging for about a year and half, but creating for as long as I can remember. I love cross stitch and embroidery, and when I’m not working, cleaning, mom-ing, or crafting, I love to read (so…about 5 minutes a week). I’d love for you to stop by my blog and say hi!
I thought I’d share one of my favorite easy crafts — monogram key chains. These are quick, easy, and are great to make as a group craft.
Here is what you will need:
small wood pieces
cut out letters or stickers
small and medium key chain rings
drill and 3⁄32 drill bit (not pictured)
Start by painting a thin layer of Mod Podge on one side of the block and sticking the letter on.
Paint on a few thin layers of Mod Podge over the letter, letting each coat dry in between. I chose to paint only the front side of the wood block with the letter on it.
After letting it completely dry, drill a hole near the top of the block. I used a 3⁄32 drill bit after experimenting with some smaller ones. Loop the ring through the hole — it is a bit tricky to fit the ring through, and pliers help with this part. After you get the ring through, that’s it — you’re done!
That’s it — a quick, easy and totally cute project!
Great to give away. Great to make a couple for yourself.
