With Easter and Spring just around the corner, my daughters’ and I are in the crafting mood. I like to get them involved with the gifts we give our family members for each holiday. This year we thought it would be fun to give them each a handmade butterfly keychain rather than chocolate. We went with butterflies to give them more of a spring feel, however we could have easily gone with cute rabbits to represent Easter.
DIY Butterfly Beaded Keychain
– Keychain rings (big split rings)
– Bulky chain
– Small split rings or jump rings.
– Pin needle findings
– Bead charms (You can learn how to make your own here: Silk Wrap Bracelets)
– Round nose pliers
– Wire cutters
Step 1: Using wire cutters, cut your desired length of chain. Step 2: Attach the chain to a big keychain ring (split ring) and to a small one (I had two different sizes of small split rings, I chose to use the slightly bigger one.). Attach a butterfly charm onto the small split ring. Step 3: Time to take out the beaded charms and to make some if you don’t have any. You can read and see a step by step tutorial on how to make beaded charms here: Silk Wrap Bracelets. The quick version to make them, is to thread a bead onto a pin needle finding, use wire cutters to cut the finding down a little, and use round nose pliers to make a loop with the remainder of the pin needle finding. Step 4: Attach the beaded charms onto the chain using small split rings. You can also add smaller charms too!
And here you go, you have yourself a Butterfly Beaded Keychain!
