With an inexpensive plastic test tube, you can make a DIY keyring to store treats, medicine/vitamins, cash, and anything else you need! I love to use these as party favors.
Skills Required: None. Even if you’ve never crafted before, you can make this project – no special skills or tools required.
If you are on-the-go like me, it’s always important to have things available right at your fingertips. With a few inexpensive plastic test tubes, you can make a DIY keyring to store treats, medicine/vitamins, cash and anything else that you might need. Add cute wrapping paper to style them up.
Gather These Supplies
- Clear plastic tubes with caps – you want to make sure that the tops are secure enough to stay on while hanging from a keychain, so they should be screw-on or secure very firmly
- Mod Podge Matte
- Thin utility twine
- Keychain split rings
- Scrapbook paper
- X-Acto knife
You’re going to start with your scrapbook paper and one of your clear plastic tubes.
First measure your tube from the bottom of the cap to just above the bottom. Using a ruler and scissors, cut out a proportionate square of wrapping paper.
Brush a thin layer of Mod Podge on the tube and wrap it with the wrapping paper square. Use your thumb to press out any bubbles and to smooth the paper.
While the tube dries, take a sharp knife and poke a hole in the top. Cut a 2 – 3 inch piece of string or thin twine, fold so the ends meet and tie a knot.
Thread the loop of the string through the hole of the cap and secure the knot inside the cap with a dot of hot glue. Add a key chain ring.
Fill up the DIY keyring, attach to your main key ring and enjoy!
