Oh, how we love keychains! Not only are they easy to make, but they’re a simple way to let your style and personality shine through. Our designer Meagan recently made these super pretty macrame key chains. And today she’s switching it up with these leather loop keychains.

Since all you need is a simple strip of leather, there’s no template for this project. Just follow our photo tutorial and instructions below to craft as many keychains as you’d like!

Locking Good

Leather is a great material for keychains because it looks good and it’s durable. To add a little bit of style to these leather loop keychains, we wrapped embroidery floss around the part where we glued the leather together. You can find the colors we used linked below in the materials list. Or browse the DMC site to choose your favorite colors.

If you like the simple, minimalistic look, these leather loop keychains will be perfect for you. But if you want something you can personalize a bit more, make sure to check out our stamped leather keychains.

How to  Make Leather Loop Keychains

  1. Gather your craft tools and materials. Then, download the photo tutorial below for a step-by-step visual.
  2. With a ruler and rotary blade, cut a strip of leather that measures 16 inches long and 1/8-inch wide.
  3. Using E6000 glue, fold about 1 inch of your leather strip through the keyring and glue to itself; glue the opposite end so it lines up with the glued end.
  4. Attach a small binder clipped over the glued leather to hold it in place while allowing it to dry.
