Mine is Hello Kitty, but yours can be anything!
I saw <a href="http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/fimo-covered-key">THIS</a> "Fimo Covered Key" and wanted to make my own, even though I had lots of questions. Being curious, I tried it out on a spare key and wrote a tutorial along the way!
NOTE: As far as I know, these are permanent. Don't do this if you aren't going to like it for however long you have your key - or make sure you get copies.

Start by covering the top part of the key in polymer clay. You can use any color or variety of colors, just make sure you don't go past the big circle part of the key. Otherwise, your key won't fit into the door.
Your fingerprints will probably be all over the clay. To help get rid of them, wet your fingers in fresh water and gently smooth away the wrinkles.
Decorate as desired. Note, if using beads make sure they are glass. Plastic beads will melt in the oven and may result in toxic fumes.
Make sure you poke a hole with the pin and wiggle it around until a big enough hole forms. (NOTE: This hole was a bit too small for my keyring and I had trouble getting it on/moving it. I suggest a bigger hole OR putting in a jumpring/metal loop so you can put it on a keychain.)
