It’s time for another fabulous repurpose! Today I am sharing a a project that I love. This was one of the first upcycled projects I ever shared on the blog. Since at the time I only had about five readers and had very limited photography skills, I figured it was time for an update!
This little necklace was so incredibly easy to make. It all started with an old brass keyhole I got from a yard sale. (Technically, these little embellished keyholes used on vintage furniture are called escutcheons. Which is totally one of those words that makes you sound incredibly smart and scholarly anytime you use it. Or like a know it all. Take your pick.)
*Update – I’m currently giving away one of these necklaces along with a few other fun goodies. Head here to enter!*

chain (Choose jump rings and a chain that match the color of your keyhole)
Upcycled Keyhole Necklace
This is really so incredibly simple. Most keyholes come with a tiny hole on each side to nail it to a drawer front.
Put a small jump ring through each hole.
Attach one end of the chain to each jump ring. Use the pliers or your fingers to close the jump rings.
And that is it – so stinkin easy!
And now you have got to see my fellow repurposers’ projects – as always they have some fabulous ideas this month.
