I’ve got keys all over, for the house, the car, my in-law’s house, padlocks keys…and some I don’t even remember whereof. So having some extra keychain, was a necessity! What better than make it fun and add a little color to the daily routine.

To make a fruit keychain, you will need:

  • polimer clay
  • Key ring
  • small chain
  • small rings
  • pliers

Start with two balls, squeeze the light green one and pinch the top part to make the pear shape. Make the leaf and don’t forget to punch a little hole on both.

Place all your fruits and leaves on a oven safe container and bake. Follow the instruction on your clay packaging for details about temperature and cooking time. As example, I bake mine 30 minutes at a very low temperature. But it may vary, so better to follow the user manual.
