DIY Glass Keychain

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.

  14. Hi! I was wondering if you’ve tried Judikins Diamond Glaze on ink jet printed paper (regular, and/or photographic printed paper). My concern is if it smudges, bleeds or smears the images that I want to use for the keychains. Thank you!

    • Hi, I imagine it would work if you printed and let the ink dry before applying the Diamond Glaze. I’ve used photo paper before and it works fine. However, it’s extra shiny so I prefer to print on regular printer paper. I hope that’s helpful!
