Everyone will wonder where Mom got her coffee shop keychain. It’s a fashionable yet practical gift that’s unique, affordable and super easy to make.
We’re nuts about Starbucks, but you could use your own favorite coffee shop’s logo from their packaging or disposable cup. Just cut it out, fit it to a blank charm then add dimensional decoupage glue for a more professional-looking finish.
This is one craft that can be as simple or as fancy as you’d like. We placed logos on small heart-shaped charms and attached colored beads to the chain at random. You’ll still want to use a swivel lobster claw clasp for easy access to keys.
No matter how you choose to design your keychain, it’s a gift that will last long past Mother’s Day.
