I’m thrilled to be a part of Craft Lightning this week! Each round features a craft or DIY project that you can make in 15 minutes. The theme this time is 15 minute teacher appreciation gifts. Click on the button at the end of this post to see lots more!
I’ve been making a lot of key rings lately and I wanted to come up with something that kids could make themselves (with just a little help from mom).
Here’s what I ended up with:I chose the word INSPIRE because that’s what I think teachers do! But you could choose any word, school mascot, teacher’s name, etc. I had enough left over to make several other projects including a key chain to remind me to pray and another with our name on it.
- Rockin Beads Antique Silver Zinc Alphabet Letters Beads
- 1mm Leather Cord
- Split Ring for Key Chains
- Swivel Clasp
Here’s a quick video tutorial… WAY less than 15 minutes!
If you have (or are willing to invest in an alphabet metal stamp set) you could also make this one in 15 minutes. I think this one will end up in my sister-in-law’s purse!
And here’s one my daughter requested:
As I mentioned, I had plenty of alphabet beads left over to make a few other projects. Since the initial jewelry is so popular right now I used one of the beads for a necklace for my daughter.
And three more to make a bracelet with my grandson’s name:
