How to Make a Key Holder


If you are looking for a craft the kids can help with, this homemade key holder might be for you. It’s an easy do-it-yourself project for everyone to work on together. Let the kids paint and you can attach the hardware. This would be a great gift for dad or grandpa. Dig up some old wood out of the garage. Pick out some hooks, wire and paint. You will have a fun afternoon creating with the kids. Let them use their imaginations and spend a rainy day making a key holder out of scrap wood.

Things You'll Need

  • Scrap wood (type, size and style is up to you)
  • Primer
  • Paintbrush
  • Wood paint
  • Wall hooks
  • Marker
  • Drill
  • Spray polyurethane
  • Steel wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Paint primer on your piece of scrap wood and let it dry.

  • Paint over the primer with the color of your choice and let it dry.

  • Decide where you want to place your hooks. Use as many as will fit on your wood base. Try to keep them equally spaced. Mark the place of each hook with a marker.

  • Drill two small holes at the top of the wood. This is where you will attach the wire to hang your key holder.

  • Spray the wood with polyurethane sealer and let it dry.

  • Cut a small piece of steel wire and place it inside the holes you made. Use needle nose pliers to twist the wire closed.

  • Attach the hooks. Use glue or if necessary, drill a small pilot hole and screw them in.
