I love using keys in craft projects. Maybe it’s a deeper need to unlock some part of my future? I’m just kidding, I don’t even know what that means. I just like them. They are a good shape and they’ll always be popular. After coming upon some cool resin keys in my local craft store’s dollar bins, I knew I needed some metallic homemade Christmas ornaments and that the keys were going to be it. What do you think? Festive, no? Here’s how I made these key ornaments (hint: they are VERY easy).
Metallic Key Homemade Christmas Ornaments
Gather These Supplies
- Faux keys
- Spray paint – I used metallic silver
- Christmas/holiday ribbon
Spray paint them. Can I tell you that I am the worst spray painter ever? I get it all over my hands and things get sticky (any tips would help). Regardless of my lame spray painting skills, I was able to cover both sides of all keys completely.
These are some of my favorite DIY ornaments of all time. These look especially good with more decorative ornaments because they are so simple. Check your local Dollar Tree to see what kind of inexpensive ornaments or baubles that you can make over with spray paint. Also, I think I’d love a whole tree of these spray painted in different colors. Do you love them too?
