Ok, so my grandma gave me a bunch of house keys today. I have little to no idea of what to do with them. There are 11 of them and I wanted to make jewlery or something, but that wold be complicated i think. Anything would help, Thanks.

zipper pulls (esp on cute purses) and jewelry would both be cute, alltho all the keys I have are a bit big for jewelry

i say if you have a large collection of them you should make a very cool tear drop chandelier.

I took all the best looking ones and put them in a shadow box.

like so -


You can lead a fool to knowledge, but you can't make him think.
It shone, pale as bone
As I stood there alone
And I thought to myself how the moon
That night, cast its light
On my heart's true delight
And the reef where her body was strewn

Drill a hole in the end without one and thread together with fishing line. Tie to a dowel and make a beaded curtain. It sounds nice every time you enter or exit a room. D

If only closed minds came with closed mouths!

If the world is getting smaller, why do postage rates keep going up?


Personal swap anyone?

I used to work at a nursing home that ended up going out of business.  I had 4 small filing-cabinet sized keys & I didn't want to toss them for memories' sake (I loved working there & was there forever).  Anyways, I strung them on yarn & crocheted a scrunchie, using the keys as beads so to speak.  It's a tad heavier than a plain scrunchie but not any heavier than a scrunchie with beads!  I wouldn't want much more than 3 or 4 keys on it though as they get in the way when putting in your hair...
