Make a heart keyring as a gift for Valentine’s Day or any day! This upcycle uses a plastic lid, a split key ring & some fabric or Washi tape & Mod Podge!If you’re looking for a small token for Valentines day or anytime, here’s cute little heart keyring you can make while saving the planet!  OK, that might be a little extreme but it does use up a plastic lid, which hopefully you grabbed by digging in your neighbors trash… those darned non-earth caring people.  I won’t mention where I got my lid but they make the cutest little keyrings rather than adding to our bulging land fills. And if you’re looking to gain even more positive Karma, place the keyring in our lovely little Soda Bottle Pillow Box. And if you’re looking to increase your Karma with the person you’re giving it to, attach a key to a new car.  Just saying.

blank11Cutting

For Manual Cutting: The pixel heart necklace pdf has several of each size heart but you only need to cut out ONE of the size of your choice to use for a pattern. Trace the one you cut out onto the cardstock several times and cut carefully with the knife, including cutting out the hole.  I used 5 hearts for mine and it was a great thickness. You can add more or less if desired.

Silhouette Cutter: If you own a Silhouette download the appropriate file and remove the sizes you do not want in your Silhouette software and cut out the rest.

To Assemble

Spread a thin layer of glue between each heart until it is as thick as desired.  Let it dry.   Coat with Mod Podge if desired for a sheen finish.  Insert string or chain.
