I love this bottle opener, but time to give it a mini-makeover.

 

Love the Keychain

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.
