Making a "Hope" Key Necklace
I've been seeing these designer key necklaces lately and My daughter mentioned she wanted one so ......we decide to make one with keys I've collected over the years. .
Step 1: Materials
I Gathered my Stamping Gear....
* I have 2 different styles and upper and lower case
* I also have number stamps, punctuation stamps and a few specialty stamps ( a star, a heart and a dog paw)
* I worked at a school that changed over to keypads and discarded all the locks and keys. I asked for the keys...... I knew I would some day need them! :)
Necklace with clasp
Wiener dog charm *optional
Stamping hammer and pad
Step 2: Stamping the Key
I lay the key on the pad and lay out the letters I will use to stamp "Hope" into the key.
I stamped starting with H and working my way down to e. I left a space between the o and p so I could stamp a dog paw in the middle of the key.
After the key was stamped, I took a sharpie marker and colored over the words hope and wiped away the marker quickly with a tissue or cloth. This helps the stamping/word to stand out.
Step 3: Attaching the Necklace
After Stamping, I slide the key on to the necklace and attach the wiener dog charm to the key.
We attached a charm to our key and placed it on the necklace, my daughter picked a dachshund dog charm.
Step 4: Finished!
Hope Key Necklace is all done and took about 20 minutes.
Perfect for my daughter or our mini dachshund Gingie!
