Today I am sharing my Jenga Block Keychain.
My husband and I enjoy visiting yard sales. When we go, I am always looking for things that I can craft with. The other day I found a package of Jenga blocks for 50 cents. I didn’t know what I was going to do with them, but they were wooden blocks that were all the same size and I was sure I could risk 50 cents on a big bag of them.
I researched some ideas for using Jenga blocks and found some cute Jenga block keychains. The wheels in my head kept spinning and this is the result…
I love how it ended up! I started by having my dear hubby drill a small hole in one end of the blocks. I used some small eye hooks purchased at a home improvement store to screw into that hole. To decorate it, I cut Designer Series Paper in pieces big enough to cover one side. I used tombo adhesive to attach the DSP to the wooden block. On the other side of the block, I used a stamp from the Workshop Words set and stamped the logo using StazOn ink. Next I covered all this with 2 thin coats of clear polyurethane. I used the heat tool on setting 1 to speed the drying time between coats. Obviously in the picture I have used 2 blocks so that you are able to see both sides. Only one of these is actually attached to my keys.
One of the things I like most about the Jenga Block Keychain is that you can still tell exactly what it used to be. It is also the perfect size to add to your set of keys to make them easier to locate, but not too bulky. I have been carrying these around for some time now and it is holding up beautifully.
