At my cousin’s beautiful wedding last September they gave out these cute bottle openers. Read why this wedding guest favor looked so familiar and wound up inspiring me to make something I will use every day. Love the Keychain
I thought it was such a sweet jester but there was something more. I kept looking at it as if I had seen something like it before. Then it hit me! I had seen it before … Love the Keychain
So, of course, I had to this … Love the Keychain
Do you love it? I know I do. Here’s how I did this SUPER QUICK AND EASY project. Love the Keychain
LOVE the Keychain
- Needle nose pliers (1 or 2)
- Wire Cutters
- Link chain (find similar at Michaels)
- Jump Rings (find similar at Michaels)
- Keychain Finding (get at this Etsy Shop)
- “Love” Bottle Opener
I love this bottle opener, but time to give it a mini-makeover.
Cut a length of link chain, I chose one to match the color of the Love bottle opener. You will only need 1 to 1.5 inches of chain. I think I had to buy a yard! Oh well. It was only $1.25/yd and I am sure I’ll find other uses for the rest.
Loop the chain through the opening in the “L” of the bottle opener.
Now take a jump ring and catch either end of the chain.
While the jump ring is still open, loop the key ring finding (again I selected a key ring color to match the bottle opener). Now using pliers close the jump ring. TIP: If you are a little heavy handed with your keys, you could choose to use two jump rings here for extra durability.
And you’re done! I know that wasn’t even 5 minutes.
Now you have a key ring/bottle opener a la Sex in the City (inspired). Don’t you LOVE it? Get it? LOL Anyway, now I carry my cousin’s love with me every day.
