Making key chains yourself is incredibly easy – our first idea with wooden beads is proof of this. This actually makes it super easy to implement various great DIY projects, such as making original pieces of jewelry. To make a stylish key ring, you need about 5-6 color-coordinated wooden beads (you can also dye these yourself – it’s very easy), a leather cord and a key ring. You should tie the leather cord to the key ring, thread the beads and then simply knot the cord. complete!

The leather key rings look really chic, are supple, durable, relatively strong and can be made by yourself without spending a lot of time! Our first suggestion is for fashionable leather pendants in the shape of a tassel. All you need is a square piece of leather in the desired color, leather glue and a small metal ring. First, use your scissors to cut a thin strip along the top of the piece. Then cut fringes in the desired width so that they end about 1 cm from the upper edge of the piece of leather. Now coat this edge with the glue and roll up “the tassel” up to the middle. Pull the narrow ribbon that you left through the metal ring, glue this to the leather and continue rolling. Hold “the tassel” in place with your fingers for a few minutes to keep it in the shape you want. complete!

You can create a cute pendant loop by threading a wide leather cord into the metal ring, balancing the ends and sticking them together on the back. Glue a thin leather cord in the middle and the cute bow is already done! Making an original keychain for men is also super easy – we suggest you choose the mustache motif. Draw this twice on the back of the leather, then cut out the two parts and secure with thread and needle.
