DIY: Faux Leather Keychain for Dad

Shopping for dad can be quite the task but we have a DIY that’ll make your life easier. It’s the perfect father’s day gift – stylish yet functional. This minimal keychain will be your dad’s new favorite accessory.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Vinyl Trim like this one

Screw on Studs like these

A keyring

Scissors

Step 1: Cut the vinyl trim to the length you want your keychain to be x 2. For example if I want the keychain to be 4 inches long I’m going to cut 8 inches.

Step 2: I wanted to add a point at the end of the key chain so I cut off 0.75 inch at a 45 degree angle.

Step 3: I then placed the key ring inside the folded trim and made a hole at the center of the ring.

Step 4: Push the screen into the hole and screw the stud on from the other side.

Step 5: Pull the ring back down and make a hole on the other side of it. Repeat the stud inserting process.

You can experiment with different styles with the same tools.

Now steal your dad’s keys and surprise him with his brand new key chain.
