This easy memorabilia photo keychain comes together in minutes (excluding drying time). It's a perfect gift for moms this coming Mother's Day! I created this one for my mom, with a photo of me and my younger brother when we were kids since we don't live near her anymore. I think it's a good gift to make for someone who has older kids, younger moms or even fur moms. You can create a basic one (like the one I made) or fancy it up with charms and other embellishments. Join me to see how easy this project came together!
- Wood Square
- Drill with bit

- Antiquing Wax
- Keychain Ring
Step 1. To create a ‘long' piece of wood perfect for your photo keychain, I used a 3″ x 3″ wood square. They're soft enough to cut down to size with just a box cutter or X-Acto knife – you just need patience and a steel rule to guide you.
Step 8. Using the same brush (unwashed), apply a layer of matte Mod Podge. The remaining residue from the antique wax will mix with the matte Mod Podge to create a slight sepia sheen. Make sure the faces don't have any stray specks of wax or paper before it dries.
I'm pretty sure my sentimental mom would love this photo keychain, and I hope yours would too! It's something easy, simple and from the heart that you can give to your mom or make for yourself. I'm going to be making one with a photo of my furbabies too! I know my mom likes this plain so I kept mine simple. , but you can definitely personalize it even further with different embellishments or charms.
