Crafturday Creative Mess 10 - Recycling keys

I love vintage stuff and vintage keys are my all time favorites. I had loads of keys at home and i decided to recycle few of them. You can reuse these vintage keys as pendants, charms or anything you like. Today I am gonna tell you how to recycle these vintage keys....Let's get started....

Supplies you will need:

Enamel paint or nail color


Rhine stones for embellishing your keys



Wash the keys to remove dust and let them dry. Paint the keys with enamel paint.... choose any color of your choice. After the first coat is applied let it dry. Apply a second coat of paint. When the paint dries apply varnish on the key.

After the paint completely dries off glue the rhines stones in any pattern you like.

For more ideas I have added pictures below:

Creative way to re-use keys. I have always thrown old keys into the trash can. These keys looks pretty when re-used with paint and rhinestones.
