How about  gluing it to a Valentine's day card  with some cheesy saying like,
"you've got the key to my heart"??

What to do with that pickle jar full of keys!?!? car keys, house keys, motel keys, handcuff keys and many more types, big and small. If anyone has any ideas, please, I would love to hear them. Once I made a windchime using steel rings and fishing line, everyone liked it, it was ok. I took it apart after awhile though.

Oh, windchime was my first thought...

When I was a kid, my mom made a neat thing where she arranged some old keys to hang on the wall.  If you didn' t want to hang them directly on the wall, you could get a rectangular piece of wood and paint it and then arrange the keys on it.  My mom laid them out so that they were either sideways or up-and-down, rather than all different directions, and she just used tiny nails for them to just hang from and be supported by, once they are upright on the wall.  It looked really cool.

You can glue them to a lampshade, but it takes a good sturdy lampshade, and it will cut down on some of the lamp light.  You can also use them to fill a glass lamp base.

LOL my first two thoughts were a mobile or some sort of abstract art peice. then the jewelry aspect of course. like a charm bracelet:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21095.0
(there are keys on that actually..just cant see at the angle i took the pictures.)
so to think of more ideas..
you could always decorate things such as mirrors or frames
make a curtain..could hurt if you hit it though... Undecided
hehe make a purse! connect them with jump rings or something and place some sort of bag or something on the inside to hold everything.  Lips sealed ehh i don't know thats all i can really think of for now. if anything else I will let you know!   Wink

you could solder (sauder, soder... can't spell tonite) them together to liven up a picture frame or hang them with monofillament from a lamp shade, or glue 'em around your computer screen, put magnets on the back for fridge magnets....
