Tutorial: Yarn Flower Keychain

Yarn Flower Keychain Tutorial by Underground Crafter #DIY #crafts #yarnRecently, I’ve been having a lot of fun making yarn flowers with a Flower Loom. This quick and easy project is a great way to use up yarn scraps while making a cute accessory.

Shop for the Boye Flower Loom at your favorite retailer!

This is also a very “kid-friendly” project, though you may want to step in when the flower is being removed from the loom and while the glue is in use (depending on your child’s age).

Yarn Flower Keychain Tutorial by Underground Crafter #DIY #crafts #yarnProject Instructions

  • Make a yarn flower with your Flower Loom. (You can find my tutorial, How to Make a Yarn Flower with a Flower Loom, here, along with links to more Flower Loom tutorials) I used CA for the petals and CB for the center. (photo 1)
  • Remove the key ring from the key chain clip. (photo 2-3) Set the key ring aside, because you’ll need it again later!
  • Insert the yarn tails from the back of the yarn flower into the small loop on the key chain clip. (photo 4) Tie a knot with the yarn tails to hold the yarn flower in position on the clip. (photo 5)

  • Use several drops of Fabri-Tac to glue the yarn to the key chain clip. (photo 6) Tip: Keep things neat by working over a surface you can discard after the glue dries, like used newspaper, or a paper or plastic bag.
  • Tie another knot, making sure it covers the fabric glue. (photo 7)
  • Allow the glue to dry.
  • Cut the yarn tails above the knot. (photo 8)
  • Return the key ring to the key chain clip, being careful not to snag the yarn.
  • Enjoy your Yarn Flower Keychain! (photo 9)
