If you have the choice to buy something that customized or templatized and both are the same price, which one are you going to pick? Right, customized, because we all would all rather have something unique. That’s part of the reason I like DIY projects so much!
These diy glass keychains are perfect for customization! They’re quick and easy to make, you can use any design you want and they make great gifts.
I used scrapbook paper for each of my keychains, but you could print out your own designs like I did for the DIY bookmarks I made a few years ago or even use material from a bridesmaids dress for a more sentimental gift. There are a lot of options.
DIY keychain materials

Step 1: cut a scrapbook paper circle
Cut out a 1″ circle the size of the glass orb in your scrapbook paper.
Step 2: glue the scrapbook paper to the glass orb
Put a small dot of Diamond Glaze on the back of the glass orb and press the design side of the scrapbook paper against the glue.
Let it dry for a few minutes.
Step 3: press the glass orb into the bezel
Put a drop of Diamond Glaze on the back of the glass orb and press it into the bezel.
Let it dry.
Step 4: attach the bezel to the keychain
Attach the jump ring and keychain top to the bezel.
When you’re finished, you’ll have a uniquely designed DIY keychain that you can keep for yourself or give as a gift. You could even order the materials for the keychains and make them on a weekend with friends while drinking some wine (or soda, or whatever you like).
Let me know what you think!
Happy crafting! 🙂
