Pinterest Challenge #2

I have completed another Pinterest challenge!!!

I hope I am not the only one, but I always end up with keys that I have no clue what they go to!
Anybody else have this problem?
While feeding my Pinterest addiction, I came across this idea.
Take your old keys and recycle them into pendants...

Here, I took a vintage clip on earring, broke off the back, and glued it to the key with E6000.  I added some rhinestones for a little more sparkle.  Once the "bling" was in place and dry, I glued a bail to the back of the key. I love how it turned out!


For this one, I started by using ModPodge to cover the key with a decorative napkin to give it some color.
I know, I know, I keep using those darn napkins!
I added some turquoise color microbeads to part of the key.
Then I glued on a vintage bee pin and added the bail.


I left the pin in tact so I can wear it as a necklace or a pin.
I call it my Bee Keyper. Get it? Ha Ha

So, don't throw away those old mystery keys.
If you don't want them, send them my way!!!
