Materials:

  • Recycled keys
  • White spray paint

  • Poms poms

Instructions:

  1. Spray paint keys white on both sides, two coats should be sufficient.
     
  2. Create hangers using floral wire. Bend the wire in half to create a loops and twist to secure. You can leave your wire plain or add beads before twisting to secure through the hole in the top of the key.

  3. Add earmuffs by hot gluing pieces of pipe cleaner across the top of the key, covering up the wire. Add a pom pom to each side.
