Fall craft season is just around the corner, which means… time to count stock and figure out what I need to make this year. I usually stick to sewing crafts, but that requires more time than I currently have available with a 5-month-old rolling around. Literally, he is a rolling machine. If he is awake, he is on a roll. he he 🙂
So, I took to Pinterest to find some new creative outlets that could potentially be a good selling item at the craft fairs and is quick to make that I can drop at a moments notice.
I found beaded keychains, some made with a keyring and some made with a lobster claw clasp. Simple, decorative, and each one unique. Luckily, I already have most of the supplies, or I could at least borrow them from my Mom. As I got going, I did purchase some items off of Amazon.
– Wire cutters
– Needle nose pliers
– Round nose pliers
– Beads & Charms
– Keyring or Lobster Claw Clasp
There are many types of wires that you can use, they vary in thickness. I use precut wire called ‘head pin findings‘ to string up a few beaded keychains before I attach them to the keyring or clasp. This way with the pre-made wire I don’t have to worry about the beads falling off the wire if I need to step away for a moment.
You can mix and match many types of beads, and charms to make something unique.

For those of you who like to shop in-store vs. online, I did run to Walmart and found some pretty good deals on some of the items I listed. They have needle nose pliers, jewelry wire cutters, and round nose pliers for around $5 a piece. They also had findings (pre-cut jewelry wire), and key-rings! Also if you must know, I do not have a preference when it comes to Walmart vs. Target. I just shop for a good deal no matter what the store is.
