Key Hanger

After losing my car key for 45 minutes one day, I decided it was finally time to make this key hanger that I've been meaning to make for almost a year!

Supplies
Picture Frame
Hooks
Measuring Tape
Drill
Pencil


When choosing a frame, make sure it's durable enough to drill into. For the picture I'm using an awesome caricature of my house that my cousin gave to us for our wedding.
 

Remover backing and glass. Measure frame, making marks where you want to drill and insert the hooks.
 

Drill holes using a drill bit slightly smaller than the threaded end of your hooks.
 
 Twist in hooks.


Replace glass, insert picture and hang. It's just that easy! I hung mine with a few command adhesive strips.



*Bonus Tip*
My car key no longer has a hook to hang it so this is what I did:


Using an old travel size soap bottle,  trace a line where you want to cut the bottle. I found kitchen scissors work well.


 Cut out the shape (low in the front, high in the back). Punch a hole in the top.


Tada!

  1. I love this idea. Especially the phone holder. So clever! And the picture frame key holder is as cute as can be.
