A while back ago I purchased a Jenga wood block game on sale for just $3.99. I thought to myself, "I'm sure there's something cool I could make with all these wooden blocks..." So I brought them home and began to think of a way to use them and this is what I came up with, Jenga keychains! These make great gifts and are sure to liven up any old set of keys. Going on a trip this summer? Save a map from your vacation and make your own souvenir keychains with your kids.
Here's what you'll need:
-decorative paper (scrapbook page, map, sheet music, pretty wrapping paper, pages of a book, ect...)
-round nose pliers
Use the pliers to screw the screw eye into the top of the block.
Trace the sides of the block on to the paper and cut them out. I cut mine slightly smaller so that I could have a nice wooden border around each paper.
Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the back of each paper and place them on the Jenga block. Make sure to smooth out the paper to prevent air bubbles.
Allow a few minutes to dry completely and then apply a thin layer of Mod Podge around all the sides. It will go on white but dies clear and provodes a protective seal.
Now just attach the key ring, throw on a few keys and admire your lovely new keychain!
I made this one from a map that we used when we went to Yosemite last summer
So many possibilities... What are you going to put on yours?
