Key Holder!

Hi! Hope you all are doing well!

I am super excited about this project - I've wanted to make one for a while now! I have seen several variations of this project around the blogging world and decided to make it my own. I loved the way it turned out - so much that I actually gave to my mom as part of her Mother's Day gift!


I started out with these supplies:

Wood plaque - $1.00 on the clearance rack @ Wal-Mart
Scrapbook Paper - already had in my stash of paper
ceiling hooks - $1.59
decoupage - already had
White Spray paint - already had
sand paper - already had


First I cut the paper to fit the inside of the wood piece. I did this by tracing the shape on to the back of the paper - then I just cut out the shape. (I made sure to have a little overlap so I could sand it down and make it a perfect fit.)

Next I gave it a light sand and spray painted the edges white. After allowing it to dry for an hour or so I applied decoupage to the wood piece (not the paper - I tried this first and it was disastrous!)

After letting it dry for a bit I took my sand paper and lightly rubbed the edges of the paper so I would be flush with the plaque. Then I marked off my spots for holes and screwed the hooks in place. I got the self starting hooks so I wouldn't have to pull out the old drill...



This project has endless possibilities - I can't wait to make another one to keep for myself!!

I was wanting to make a key holder for our camper and I only have a vertical space so you just showed me that it can look good. I am off to Walmart!! Saw your post on the Power of Paint!

This is a great project! My key holder doesnt match my new memo board, so this is something I must make! Thanks for the inspiration =)
