Jewelry Clay Keychain/Magnet/Pinbacks
A new keychain is the perfect gift for Father’s day! Maybe a tie tack is more suited for grandpa! And you cannot go wrong with a great magnet!
These are a super fun craft for older kids and would make a great gift for Father’s day! It’s an easy project and just takes minutes.
Envirotex Jewelry Clay
Keychain hardware, magnets or pinback
Watch parts and rhinestones
Read the instructions carefully and make sure you have everything ready before beginning.
You need one part of each container. Use something like a teaspoon to get one scoop of each.
Mix them together until they are completely mixed with no marbling.
Next, split clay into pieces then press into the bottle caps so they are filled to the rim but not bulging.
Now the fun part! Use fingers or tweezers to place the little watch parts or rhinestones in the clay. Press them in gently but firmly to make sure they are in the clay deep enough to be secure. Then let the clay dry completely. It only takes about 20 minutes for the jewelry clay to harden so having everything ready is key for this project.
Then use E6000 glue to adhere pinbacks or magnets to the back.
Let the glue dry completely, generally about 4 hours.
Then they are ready to wear, stick on or show off! Dad can hook one to his keys, keep track of memos or use one as a tie tack!
These are so much fun to make. Such a fun craft for older children too!
Dad will love his new keychain!
