DIY CRICUT LEATHER KEYCHAIN
One of my favorite things to do in the summertime is to invite my friends over to make some craft projects together. It’s a fun way to get together and talk the day away while we make something creative. It’s also a really great way to get more creative ideas because each one of us adds our own spin to our projects.
When we got together last time, I showed my friends this great idea for Cutting Leather With The Cricut Maker – DIY Keychain. It was lots of fun and is the ideal summer project! Use different colors of spray paint and vinyl and you can get a variety of different looks. We found this super cute quote and the little popsicle shape from our Makers Gonna Learn membership!
- Cricut Maker
- Brown Faux Leather Sheet
- Mint Green Cricut Vinyl
- Yellow Spray Paint
- Transfer Paper
- Hot Glue Gun
Step by Step Instructions
- Measure your leather and size how big you’d like your keychain to be.
- Once you sized it in Cricut Design Space load the machine and let it do the work!
- While it’s cutting, get your scissors and cut a little strip of the extra faux leather you have. This is going to be the loop for the keychain!
- Once your popsicle is cut remove the access and load the machine with your mint green Vinyl. Let it cut.
- Go outside with your cut popsicle shape and apply a layer of yellow spray paint. Allow it to dry completely.
- Unload the machine and weed the excess vinyl and apply transfer tape to the quote.
- Hand-cut a vinyl piece to be the stick of the popsicle.
- Once the leather has dried carefully adhere the vinyl pieces and remove the transfer paper.
- Flip the Popsicle over and hot glue that small piece of leather you cut into a loop, then hot glue it onto the corner of the top of your popsicle.
- Add it to your keyring and enjoy!
