Wine Cork Keychain DIY Project
I’m always looking for fun DIY projects to do at home (with or without the kids. I thought this wine cork keychain project was a great one – especially for those who are beginners in the craft department.
It takes about 3-5 minutes to make each keychain. Be honest – we all have that kind of time on our hands! And just think about how happy everyone will be when they receive these fun gifts!
- Wine Corks
- Split Rings
- Screw Eyes
- Wire Cutters or Scissors
- Round Nose Pliers
- Flat Nose Pliers
1. Twist a screw eye into one end of a cork. Attach a split ring to the loop of the screw eye to create the keychain.
2. Cut an eyepin in half using wire cutters or sharp scissors. Use the side that still contains a loop, and slide on a bead. Push the beaded eyepin into the other end of the cork.
3. Add a charm by twisting open the attached jump ring, placing it through the loop in the eyepin and twisting closed.
The screw eyes can be easily found at any hardware store for $1-2. All other materials are available at local craft stores.
These make great gifts for wine lovers! You could pull a ribbon through the keychain end and tie it around the giftee’s favorite bottle of wine. Perfect hostess gift for holiday parties!
This is also a fantastic bridesmaid gift. Use beads that coordinate to the wedding colors and attach a letter charm to the end for each bridesmaid’s first initial.
