The best holiday gifts are the ones you make yourself. Levi’s® Tailor Masayuki Den from Japan shares a crafty way to create cool keychains out of old denim. They’re cute and easy enough for kids to pull off.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
- Old Denim
- Key ring
- Marking chalk
Lay old denim flat and draw thin lines using the ruler and chalk. Mark off 8-10 ribbons ½” wide and 12-14” long.
Cut the bandana the same way you cut the denim, making an additional 3-4 ribbon pieces.
Stack all ribbon pieces together and feed them through the hole of the key ring, making sure they are all the same length.
Using string, tie the ribbons together tightly near the key ring. Cut off excess string.
Once tied, twist and work the denim pieces together, causing them to fray slightly.
To complete the look, twist each ribbon tightly, one by one to create a curl effect.
Wrap it and give it to someone with a key to your heart.
