Tutorial for Making Your Own Keychain

I’ve made a simple DIY keychain tutorial for you to follow along here, with children, or as a gift for your family members.

Materials Used:  DIY Keychain

– Macrame thread – Wooden beads – Scissors

Step One: Cut The Macrame Thread

The first step is to cut your macrame to double the length you’d like for your keyring. My final keyring is 10cm long, so I cut a 20cm piece of thread.

Step Two: Unravel Thread

If you use beads with a large enough hole in the middle, you can skip this step! Alternatively, you can use a different type of thread that is slightly thinner, such as DK yarn.

Step Three: Tie a Loop and Knot

Fold your thread in half so you have two strands, and tie a knot at the top, leaving a small loop to attach your keyring.

You can get creative here and use perler beads, beads all in one color, complimentary colors, or even beads with letters on them to spell out a word.

Step Four: Thread the Beads

When all your beads are threaded on, tie a knot at the bottom. Make sure the knot is large enough so that the hole in the bottom bead can’t pass over it.

Step Five: Secure The Beads
