charm bracelets I showed you last week. They will love putting them on their backpacks.
Here's what you need:
The alphabet charms were provided to me by Prima Bead. I got the keychain rings from Joann's and everything else were leftovers from other projects.
These were very simple to make.
First I made the beads into charms by inserting head pins and then form a loop at the top of the bead. I show you how to form a loop in my Necklace Tutorial.
Next I attached a length of chain to the keychain ring with a jump ring. I started with leftover chain pieces that were about 2 inches long and then cut them down after I had added the charms.
Attach your charms with jump rings. I used four charms on each keychain. You could add more if you wanted.
Lastly cut any excess chain.
That's it. Super easy and you can use up leftover beads from other projects, so it's super cheap too.
Here's a closer look at each keychain.
