Octopus Key Holder.

Introduction: Octopus Key Holder.

About: i like cute things.

Listen. We need to talk. It's not you, it's your keys. Your key situation is out of control. They're squirreled away in drawers, cubbies, and out-of-season jacket pockets. You're like a mobile hoarder with all those keys you carry in your purse. There is almost an entire colony's worth of rabbit feet in there. You need a place to put them. Field strip your keyrings. Create situationally-appropriate key sets. Minimize the jangling. But where to put them?

What you need is more arms. Eight of them. 

And you know what has 8 arms, is a cephalopod mollusc, and LOVES KEYS? The Octopus Key Holder!

Here's how to make one: 

1) I quickly sketched up an octopus in CorelDRAW.
2) The octopus was made with 1/4" acrylic, and a laser cutter.
3) I then took a heat gun to the acrylic to form the legs into hook like shapes. Be very careful when handling the hot acrylic - I advise using needle nose pliers or welding gloves.
