I don't know about you, but I am CONSTANTLY losing me keys. I don't know how...or why...but as soon as it's time to go somewhere, I can't find my keys. Whether it's leisurely off to the grocery store, or running ten minuets late to church and in a hurry, somehow, my keys are nowhere to be found. Not in my purse...not on the counter...nowhere. SOOOOO, in a desperate self improvement moment of mania, I decided to finally fix my problem. I made a key holder. And it's been awesome!
I just took a blank decorative wood thing (you can find these at any craft store, or even Walmart) and bought some hooks from the hardware department. I think they were like $2 or so. I spray painted the hooks black. Next, I painted the wood and then "antiqued" it with some black paint and sand paper. I added some letters cut with my Silhouette and some keys (I found them HERE at Dafont.com) The text is called Traveling Typewriter (HERE from Dafont.com).
Then, I just used E600 glue to glue on the hooks (basically, I was too lazy to go out to the garage and get the drill). And that's it! So easy to make and so cute! Not to mention, totally functional. And I haven't lost my keys in a week! :)
