DIY: Key Decorations

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
Hey guys,
So today it's Friday and Friday's DIY day. I am going to show you a really cute way of decorating your boring keys. I did not come up with this, I saw it on Trusper Tips app and I really liked it so I recreated it and decided to show you today.

Things You'll Need:
A Key
Nail Polish (Whatever colours you want your key to be)
Clear Coat Nail Polish
Small, thing paintbrush

I'm going to show you how to make the blue key above but it is pretty simple on how to change the pattern to make it how you want.

1. Clean your key. This is not a vital step (I have to be honest and say I didn't do this) but it is best to clean it.

2. Paint your key with a base colour. For me, this was bikini so teeny by Essie. Make sure the paint on the part of the key with grooves is not as thick to ensure that the key still works.

3. No paint your pattern on. I started by taking a white polish and painting messy white circles all over the key.

4. Then I took a pale pink colour and put it lightly on top of the white blobs.

5. Next I used the small paint brush to paint thin bright pink lines all over the blobs making it look like a rose.

6. Then I took a dark blue/green colour and drew leaves on the flowers. This doesn't have to be too neat, it actually tends to look better a little scruffy.

7. Now paint a sheer clear coat over the key once it's dry. I left one side to dry at a time but you can loop a grip through the hole and tape it to a desk to dry both sides. Just make sure the key is fully dry before painting the top coat otherwise the polish will smudge and the pattern will be messed up.

I hope you enjoyed this DIY tutorial and comment below if you have any DIY projects or posts you'd like to see. Thank you!
