How To Make A Monogram Keychain


Cricut Maker 3 or other cutting machine (or scissors)
Faux Leather
Strong permanent adhesive
Key ring

Optional: tassel

Step 1: Choose/create your design in the Cricut Design Space app.

The specific images I used were “Keychain monogram letter ___” designed by Cat Madeira. There are also numbers and simple shapes available in this style too.

Step 2: Cut the design from Faux Leather.

Send the design to your machine. Make sure to choose the correct material, Faux Leather, then follow the prompts to load the material into your Cricut on a cutting mat, and start the cut. Let the Cricut work its magic!

Once the cut is complete, remove the shape from the cutting mat. If you’re making more than one keychain, I recommend cutting them all out at this point.

Step 3: Apply adhesive to the back sides of each letter and thread a key ring onto the center area.

I used a Tombow Permanent Adhesive. You can also use craft glue, fabric glue, or super glue.

Step 4: Press the sides together.

Put the sticky sides together and press to seal. Now, your keychain is ready to use!

These are so quick and easy to create; I made them for my dad, my father-in-law, my husband, my boys, and some friends, too. It’s fun experimenting with different colors for each person.

For extra decoration, you can add a tassel, too. You can find these online or in a craft store, usually in the jewelry section. To add it, just slide the tassel’s ring onto the key ring; no special tools required.
