DIY Resin Letter Keychains are a fun way to customize your personal items and make great gifts!
Hello, Resin Crafters! Lindsay here with a new, glittery, resin project to share with you! My daughter loves accessorizing her backpack, so we worked together to make her a unique zipper pull/keychain packed with glitter in her favorite color. These keychains are similar to the Planner Charms, but are a bit larger. They are the perfect size to hook to your keys or for kids to attach to their backpacks.
Supplies needed to make your own Resin Letter Keychains:
- EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy
- Mixing Cups
- Stir Sticks
- Castin’ Craft Transparent Dyes – Blue
- PolyColor Resin Powder and Resin Glitter – I used a mix of pink, blues and white
- Alphabet Silicone Mold
Prepare the EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy according to package directions. Be sure to work in a well-ventilated area and wear disposable gloves. Pour in equal parts of resin and hardener to the mixing cup.
Stir the resin mixture together with a stir stick for two minutes, and then pour the resin into a clean mixing cup. Stir the resin again for another minute or two with a clean stir stick. Add a drop or two of resin dye, and sprinkle in a generous amount of glitter.
Slowly pour the resin into the letter mold of your choice. Pop any bubbles that rise to the top using a lighter or by blowing through a straw.
Leave the resin to cure in an undisturbed area for 24 hours. You will know that the resin is completely cured when it is no longer tacky.
*To make a two-toned letter keychain, split the mixed resin into two cups. Then add different dyes and glitters to each cup. Pour a little bit of each resin color in different ends of the mold, alternating until the mold is filled.
Use a drill and a small drill bit to make a hole towards the top of the letters.
Hook a large jump ring through the hole in the resin letters, and attach a keyring.
Now you can hook the DIY Resin Letter Keychains to anything you want! You can make them for your own keys, or make some for your kids to attach to their backpacks! These keychains would also make great gifts for friends and family!
