Upcycled Hotel Key Necklace - Holiday Gift Countdown Week # 5 -


This week's easy peasy jewelry tutorial turns a vintage hotel room key into a gorgeous little

(well maybe not so little, little is highly over-rated at times anyway)

necklace that your favorite traveler will love.

You will need to hunt down one of those amazing plastic hotel key tags and an old key.

I even found a vintage hotel room do not disturb sign from Etsy seller Papers of Old that makes the perfect little back tag to this piece.

You will need:



 




vintage key
hotel key fob
doodads
chain
jumprings
do not disturb sign

Just drill a hole in the bottom of the fob- add a fancy doodad with a jumpring, add the key to the top hole along with your chain and voila - some excitement for the weary traveler!



Mine is being gifted attached to this wonderful little do not disturb sign - love it!

Okay, where in the heck did you find that key? It's from the University of Nebraska School of Dentistry, I believe. Are you following me . . . ?
