So ever since I spotted the monster fur keychain in the Fendi Collection I’ve wanted one! Then Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Jasmine Saunders and countless other celebrities and fashionistas have been photographed all over rocking theirs and my desire for one continually increased.
I searched the internet for something similar and came across great ones from Michael Kors, Mischa Lampert and many others but price point became the issue. I mean come on, its a KEYCHAIN! lol I refuse to pay a grip for something so trivial.
So then I turned to amazon and other trendy sites and while they had some for a great price the quality was questionable. They looked more like pom poms from my childhood art and craft days then the lovely, lush long “fox fur” versions the designers were offering. So per usual I revved up my DIY juices and set out to make my own!
All the items you can purchase right from Michaels, Jo-Anns or Hobby Lobby. The most important item is the boa! The brand of mine is Zucker Feathers. Be sure the boa you buy has long thin wispy feathers not the big feathers. It makes all the difference in the style of your finished keychain!
So I saw these cute bunny ear Bobby pins once and haven’t been able to find them since! To be honest I’m really not a big fan of the whole animal ear trend. Even though I find it super cute I guess I find I already look young enough without the help of any accessories. Lol Yet these Bobby pins have been on my mindddd so I finally decided to DIY them. Maybe I’ll figure out how to rock them that doesn’t make me look 12 *fingers crossed* 🙂
Bobby pins (silver or gold ones would be preferable)
Silver or gold wire (20 gauge or thicker)
Silver or gold wire (24 gauge or thinner)
Hot glue gun
Let’s get started!
1. Cut a piece of wire (it should be in a circle from how it’s been wrapped)
2. A quarter of the way around the circle make a bend to create your first ear. Repeat.
3. Wrap the thinner wire to secure the ears.
4. Do any final shaping or adjustments
5. Hot glue gun your ears to the Bobby pin.
6. Take the thinner wire and secure further (and conceal the glue) by wrapping it around the ears and Bobby pins.
7. Optional. If your Bobby pins are black, spray paint them to match the color of your wire.
I’m back with another DIY 🙂
I recently got this cute iPhone case…
It’s definitely been so handy and being a girl that likes to wear skirts and dresses I just don’t always have pockets. lol which makes the question of where to stick my cell phone a constant conversation with myself.
I wanted an alternative for those times where I decide to change my case or don’t plan on rocking a case at all! So I came up with this super easy and super functional DIY that you can customize anyyy way you want! 🙂
