How to make a wooden DIY keychain

STEP 1: Gather your supplies

It is always good to gather all your supplies before beginning any craft. Get your wood slices ready, prepare paint in your chosen colours and get your work surface ready.

STEP 2: Paint wood slices

To prepare the wood slices ready for drawing pictures you will need to paint them in acrylic paint. If you draw straight onto the wood the colour will bleed.

Carefully paint the wood slice in your chosen paint colour. Go as close to the edge of the wood slice as you can whilst leaving a little wood showing to add to the rustic look of these keychains. Leave the paint to dry.

STEP 3: Draw a picture

Once the paint has dried your wood slice is ready for drawing on. We chose to draw pictures of the people that these keychains were being made for, but you could really draw anything! Alternatively you could add a short message e.g 'I love you' or 'You're the best'.

TIP: Using thin marker pens works the best!

Tie a keychain to each wood slice using a short piece of twine. Your diy keychain is now complete!
