Hearts are always cute in any project we use them.It is the month of making lots and lots of hearts themed projects. Valentine’s Day is a day for celebrating love. You can’t go wrong with the gift of a heart for Valentine’s Day. It works as a great gift and can also be used as decor for Valentine’s parties.What's better way to show someone you love them than to make them a handcrafted gift? My project idea for today is a cute Crochet Heart Key chain.
Recently I had shared the pattern for Stuffed Crochet Heart. Its from here I thought of making this Cute Heart themed key chain.

Remember a to leave a long tail end to put in the beads.I have used pearl beads. You can use any beads of your choice.
To make the loop, make chain stitches and slip stitch to same stitch.
Once you finish making the loop, carefully attach the metal ring.
Weave in the loose ends if any.
