How to make a Keychain with Beads and Butterflies

DIY Beads and Butterflies Keychain

I made this one and I love it, so I wanted to share it with you =D Hope you like it!


What you need:

  • Ribbon / Cintas
    Beads and separators / cuentas y separadores
    Ornaments / Adornos
    Needles (jewelry)/ agujas (de bisutería)
    Keychain Hook  / gancho de llavero

I used a white organza ribbon.

First thing, cut 2 long strips of ribbon, it doesn’t have to be the same size, just keep it longer than the length you want it to be.

Fold them in half (or leave one side longer than the other =D) and insert the folded end of both strips through the hook hole.

When it’s out, leave a few centimeters, insert the other end (both ends) through the folded end and pull all the cord down and tighten!

You should have something like this:

Insert all 4 strips into a decorative bead

Make a tight knot


With a lighter burn a bit the ends to avoid fraying.

Now in one strip insert a bead and make a knot

Repeat the process in different distance in every strip

For the butterflies ends, insert a needle into the spacer and then the butterfly

With a needle nosed pliers (is what I’ve got lol) make a swirl with the wire left

Insert a jump ring in that swirl. Repeat the process with the rest.

Insert the end of a strip in the jump ring

Make a Knot very tight

Repeat the process with all the strips. Since I had only 3 butterflies and 4 strips, I added a decorative bead to the 4th end!

So this is it, I LOOOOVE it!!!

What do you think?, Cute or what???
