DIY key and sunglasses holder

Hi everyone!  a lot of my Diy project start out of necessity, and this is another one of those.

We have a lot of keys in our household, years ago I made this little heart key holder, although it’s adorable, it’s way too small.

My husband has been telling me for months, every time his keys fall down” we need a bigger key holder”

so this last weekend I decided to make a bigger one that would hold all of our keys and maybe sunglasses too.

items I found in my garage and craft room

The challenge I gave myself was “to make it free , with whatever I could find around the house”.  so this is what I found and how it turned out.

what I used for this key holder

-a small piece of wood from another project

a cork tile

some left over cabinet door handles

hot glue

a plastic picture holder

-push pins (from my kitchen cork board)

some leftover stain ( the same one I used on the outdoor table)

some little hooks.

I have to say my camera shows a bit TOO much detail, either that or I need some hand cream.

as you can see the door handles work great to hold the sunglasses. I put a picture of my cat Maxi. The picture can be changed easily when ever I want.

And my other half was very happy when he came home and his keys didn’t hit the floor.
