Step 2: Let's Make the Arrangement to Make the Key Holder!

  • Also, give it slight touches of blue to make it look like a more realistic peacock.
  • Paint the eyes with white and black color and also color the beak and hood with yellow shade.

Step 4: Let's Decorate the Craft!

  • Use decorative stones to decorate the colored objects.
  • We are using different colored stones to paste on these objects.
  • Now stick different bead laces around the stones to give it an attractive look. We have to repeat the process for all the colored object.
  • Paste these designs on the key holder.
  • Now use the golden color beads to decorate the peacock key holder.
  • Use the other decorative bead chains to decorate the neck of the peacock.
  • Take the blue paint and make designs around the neck of the peacock as shown in the craft.
