It’s the day of Christmas and you want to make sure that your children will have something extra special on their wish list, such as a few crystal keychains. It is a simple task and the keychain is not a very costly item, but you will find that you can save quite a bit of money by making your own. The good thing is that this is very easy to do. All you need is a little creativity, a good set of keychain scissors, and a good pair of scissors that are made out of plastic. When you get started, you will notice that this is an easy craft that can be done in about an hour or so.
First off, decide what kind of keychain you are going to make. There are many different types of these, from keys for cell phones to car keys. You can also make them out of different materials such as plastic beads. Whatever the material, you will find that there are many different options out there when it comes to buying these. Make sure that you have a lot of different kinds to choose from.
Next, get some plastic cutting tools. You will need a pair of scissors, a good pair of scissors that are made out of plastic, and a set of pliers. These are all items that you can get at your local hardware store. After you get these items, take your time to look around online and see what you can find. You might be surprised at some of the options that you find. One of the great things about shopping online is that you will find that you can buy the keychains in a large number of different sizes. You will find that you will find the ones that fit the most with each child.
Now you are going to want to start cutting out the keychain that you have chosen. Be sure to keep in mind that you will need to cut out a large section so that you have a large enough one to use as a pattern. This is what will make the cut looks like a crystal. Start by taking the first section and then move the other two along until they make up a solid shape. Then you will cut the top part of the design and then the bottom portion.
Once this is done you can apply some glue to the top of the design. This will help make the keychain look more real. If you want to add in some gems, this is even easier. Simply glue in a few ornaments to give it that extra wow factor.
These are just a few of the tips that you will find when it comes to making these keychains. Keep in mind that when you are using the keychain scissors make sure that you use a pair that are made out of very durable plastic.
