Wooden Beaded Keychain
This project is very similar to the previous one but I like how more muted pastel colors have been used to paint the beads. It just shows how you can take an idea and then use your imagination to really make it your own.
This might look like another wooden bead keyring, but these beads are made with air dry clay, and for an extra special twist they act as an essential oil diffuser! Attach one to your keys, or your bag, but you’ll be able to have your oils with you on the move… love it!
Pom Pom Keychain
I had a pom pom maker for Christmas last year and making pom poms is pretty addictive! I love this idea of adding them to the beads to make a fabulous keyring.
