  • How to make a key pendant. Key To My Dreams Necklace - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather all your supplies, being sure to choose a LARGE key charm and a nice long chain to hang it from.

  • Step 2

    Attach jump rings to your key charm and try it out on your chain. It took me a couple tries to get it to lay just right. If you got a chain longer than 36 inches you could attach jump rings to each end and loop the chain through those rather than having the key run along the length of the chain like I did. Actually, I think I'll make a run back to craft store and do that myself!

    Step 3

    Vary the length of the charms by adding more jump rings. For instance, I wanted the deer to look as if it was at the base of the tree, so I added several jump rings to achieve this. Also, the acorn was rather chunky compared to the other charms, so I had to give it a little more slack to make it lay properly. You will attach these to the shaft of the key. Play around with it to get an arrangement you like! I placed the deer on the curly part of the key to space the charms out a bit more. Also, keep in mind that one end of the key may be heavier than the other, so balance it with the charms you add to ensure it stays nice and straight while wearing.
