Introduction: Up-cycled Key Pendant

Key pendants are elegant vintage accessories. This is a great way to recycle broken keys or old keys laying around.

Step 1: Things You Will Need:

Things you will need:
  • Old keys/broken keys
  • Rhine stones, broken brooches etc.
  • Hot glue
  • Jump rings

Step 2: Step One:

If you want to change the color of the key, spray paint the color you like or use nail polish to change the color of the key.

I’m not changing the color of the key; I’m going to use the natural color of it.

i had a button which fit exactly to the key. before i glue the button i attached a jump ring to the key using a small piece of wire.

Step 3: Attaching Embellishments....

i chose this black button which fit just right to the key, i was able to remove the button in to two parts, i used the gold base of the button which had a dinosaur. i glued the gold button base to the key using hot glue. 

Step 4:

there was a blank space in the button which i filled with tiny gold beads. i applied hot glue all over and pasted gold beads.

along the key line i pasted rhinestones.

This will be beautiful handmade gift to your loved once.
