Key Holding

Hello DIYers!!

Are you one of those people who spends a few maddening minutes every morning looking for keys?

Well, the solution is very easy really, just have one designated place in the house where the keys are kept. I prefer to have a  place to hang keys right by the door. That way, the first thing you do when you walk into the house is hang the keys. It will take some time to get the hang of it but once you do, it becomes habit.

I know of a home where frantic search for keys is routine anytime someone wants to leave the house. I decided to make them a place to hang their keys and hopefully leaving the house will be a smooth affair.

I used an old photo frame i got from House of Leather a while back and never got to use.


For this project i used gold hooks i got from the hardware at Yaya Centre, a hammer and some left over wrapping paper i got from Game Stores.

*note to self, i do need another trip there to stack on some DIY goodies.

I traced the wrapping paper with the picture frame cut outs. I cut the paper and stuck it with glue and placed it back in the frame with the wrapping paper facing up.

I measured and marked where to put the screws. Put them in with the hammer and some wrist grease (screwing them into the frame)  and viola!

I am yet to present it to the new owners….i hope they will appreciate it and use it to make leaving the house a smooth affair.

You can use many materials to make a key holder, however, the screws are a constant ingredient since they help hold the keys.

Where do you keep your keys?

Keep it DIY!!
