Using Keys for Decoration

I had so much fun using keys on the Valentine’s Day jars.  I found some additional keys at Michael’s crafts that I fell in love with…literally.  My mind started racing with all of the fun things that I could do with the keys!  I think I came up with some pretty awesome stuff.  Keep reading to see what I did.

I purchased several rustic picture frames and scrapbook paper.  I removed the glass from the frames, cut the paper to fit in the frames, and added the keys.


This was the easiest one of all.  I added scrapbook paper that looks like barn wood.  When I hang the frame on the wall, I will hang the large key slightly higher, so that it hangs in front of the frame.

I found this darling scrapbook paper that has numerous keys on it…how appropriate!  The keys came on the ring, so this was easy to assemble.  I tied jute onto the key ring, and draped it through the frame, all the way to the back, then closed up the back of the frame.  I tied a knot at the top of the jute so that it doesn’t slip.  Notice the frame has it’s own “key ring” at the top.

This metal frame is so awesome.  It looks so old and rustic!  I used scrapbook paper with a globe on it.  These small keys are glued onto the paper with E6000 glue.  I think this might be my favorite one!

This is another rustic metal frame.  I off centered the scrapbook paper from left to right for interest.  I hung the key with jute and draped it through the frame, as I described on the frame with the “key ring”.

I had so much fun that I think I need to find more keys!!!  I know you will enjoy this simple craft.  Now I need to figure out where to hang them in my house.

Happy hanging…

“Wonder what I will come up with next”…
