Hey guys!!! I’m over here still LOVING all of the fun things I am creating with my Wild Rose Cricut Bundle. You may remember my last project HERE but today I am sharing a really fun way to make a DIY Vinyl Keychain with the Cricut shimmer vinyl using myJOANN exclusive Wild Rose Cricut Explore Air 2. I love the fact that this Cricut cuts 2x faster than my other Cricut AND it came with a ton of vinyl options…remember…over $100 of included materials so I am having so much fun playing around with different colors and finishes!

Best part!??? JOANN is running an incredible deal on the bundle so the savings is totally worth it!!! A total MUST!!!

This project is for sure beginner level and can be kid friendly too! I think these keychains make a great gift, party favor or rainy day DIY project…you pick! Here is what you will need to make your own keychain.

Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine Bundle – Wild Rose

Wood Tags

Embroidery Floss

Split Key Rings


Colored wood beads

Pom Pom Maker

I started by creating this graphic and uploading it into Cricut Design Space.

I adjusted the image size based on the wood tags. My wood tags are approximately 1.5″h x 4″ w. Once I had the file set up in Design Space, I adjusted my Cricut to the desired setting for vinyl and cut the image out.

Once the image is cut, you need to weed the vinyl you do not want to keep and then transfer the image you want on the surface using Cricut Transfer Tape.

Once you have the vinyl transferred onto the transfer tape, it’s now time to apply the cut image to the surface you want to apply it to.

For this step, I used 6 links from the gold chain and attached it to the tag with a larger jump ring and then onto a key ring.

Once I had the cut vinyl images placed on the wooden tags, I made various tassels and yarn pom pom with my Pom Pom Maker to embellish the keychain. Oh I even added on some colored wood beads! This is the part you can get creative and add whatever decorative items you want to personalize it! So easy, so fun and over-the-top adorable!
