Feel free to take away any inspiration that you find!
So, here we go:
Craft for September- Painted Wood Beads and Tassel Keychain with Shrink Plastic Theme Charm
I used 20mm natural wood beads that I painted in theme colors, or at least as close as possible to theme colors. I found the beads at Joann in the jewelry making section.
I bought the leather jewelry cording at Hobby Lobby, also in the jewelry section, along with the jump rings and keychain rings.
I used a 2 1/2" star shaped punch to cut shrink plastic and edged the shape with a silver paint pen and used a permanent ink pen to write the theme in the middle. I also punched a hole before I shrunk the plastic and then added a jump ring to attach it to the key chain split ring.
I followed a very simple tutorial to learn how to make the tassel, using this Youtube video.
And then I just assembled all the pieces. It was that easy! It ended up averaging out to be around $1.50 per mom, and I planned for 65. Hopefully the ladies will love it as much as I do!
