For this first project, I tried to pick the most unique and different looking keys. I absolutely love that little tube key in the middle towards the top! It reminds me of a handcuff key. Since my husband's a police officer I just had to include it.
I took some fabric leftover from the Suit Jacket and Skirt I made my daughter. I hot glued the fabric around the glass that was in the frame. I was going to do burlap, but when I was looking through my stash I saw this and I'm loving how it looks.
Once the fabric was in place, I arranged the keys, moving them around until I liked how they looked. Then I simply hot glued them in place.
I can't decide which way to display them, horizontally or vertically. What do you think?
This next one is very special, since it was one of the original keys to my Grandpa's house.
I think these frames that I picked up at a yard sale for 75 cents each are just perfect.
As I was putting these together, my husband came over and said, why don't you try and fit as many as you can in the space. So since I still had plenty of keys left, I did. Here's the result:
Too bad I didn't have another frame like the ones above to match.
Have you made anything using keys? Which frame is your favorite?
