One, of my favorite spots to visit when in Hot Springs, AR is the Central Station Marketplace. On one such trip, I ran across a box of small keys. I wanted a ring of them, but he wanted $5 a piece, so I only bought one. Then, a couple of rows over...Jackpot, a whole ring of Large keys for $10. Now, I had the keys, I needed a frame.
So...the keys sat....
Then, Southern Junkers (https://www.facebook.com/groups/southernjunkers/) had a Fall Market with a ton of vendors. I found the FRAME and just my color....RED with a bit of Turquoise, but no back. Not a problem!
Off to the Hardware store to purchase a thin piece of wood (pictured) for a back and Burlap to cover it with.
Tools needed: Circular Saw, Square, Pencil... I am not real comfortable with Saws, but I was determined to do this by myself.
I measured out the size needed to fit into the back of frame and cut.....
Then, I used the Spray Adhesive to attach the burlap and the Quick Grip to glue the keys to Burlap/Backing. On Pinterest, I did not see instructions on How they attached the keys.....So, I am hoping this Holds!

I LOVE IT!
Have you done any key projects? And, I still have that One small key to do something with....
