Intro: Scorpius Constellation Keychain

Hello Guys,

in this instructable I will show you how I made this simple and cool scorpius constellation keychain.

You can watch the video above to see the making in action,

I hope you like this project.

Step 1: Materiels

I used to build this keychain:

1 - A piece of aluminium, (or wood)

2 - Rotary tool (you can use a file and a drill)

3 - Glue.

4 - Piece of paper.

5- Pencil.

6 - 432p/400p sand paper.

7 - Hacksaw.

8 - Small bit.

9 - Mallet or hammer

Step 2: Making the Constellation

1- I took a piece of paper, then I copy the stars of the scorpius constellation using a pencil.

2 - Then I glued the paper on the aluminium piece.

3 - I used nail and a mallet the mark the stars on the aluminium piece.

4 - I attached a small bit to the rotary tool, then I drilled the wholes (stars) through the aluminium piece.

Step 3: The Shape of the Key Chain

1 - Using a Hack saw I cut the aluminium piece to a rectangle form.

2 - with the rotary tool I sand the edges.

3 - then I rounded the corners.

4 - I add a letter N with a stamp, (optional)

5 - I drilled the last whole to attach the key chain to it.

Step 4: Final Step

Finally I sand the surface with 432p sandpaper then with a 400p sandpaper, then I attached the keychain.

I hope you liked this project, I'm waiting for your feedback,

Thank you for your time

    Have you tried to look at the night sky through the keychain to match it with the real constelation?

    This is a really neat idea! If everybody in your house had a different star sign then you could do one for each!

    Make a rack to hold your keyring at the front door, and you could have it backlit with the stars shining through.
