For The Person Who Loses Everything
As a busy and easily distracted person I often find myself searching my purse for my keys, phone, sunglasses, or planner. Pretty much, I spend a lot of time searching for things every day. I used to have a big leather keychain on my car keys and I loved it because it was bright and easier to find in my giant bag. Sadly it wore out and I have yet to replace it. For this months challenge for 12 months of DIY the material is ribbon and while digging through my ribbon stash I decided to make a ribbon tassel keychain for my keys.
This ribbon tassel keychain is a great scrap buster for anyone who crafts. I used lace, sequins, embroidery thread, gold thread, and various widths and types of ribbons. This ribbon tassel is pretty easy to make, but I will share how I made mine, just in case you need it.
To make this ribbon tassel keychain you only need a few simple things:
- a keyring
- ribbon, lace, sequins, whatever combination you like
Gather your ribbons and fold over a keychain. Tie another ribbon around the top to keep them secure. Voila! You are done!
I immediatley added mine to my planner (its from The Happy Planner and its amazing) just for fun. Once I get a new phone case I will make another tassel keychain to attach to the case. Hello, easy to find keys.

This is a very cute project! Those little tassels can also make great gifts or toppers on gifts. I hope you’ll stop by to share it at The Crafty Corner link party this week 🙂
This is absolutely brilliant Brooke for a number of reasons! What a great way to use up bits and pieces of ribbon so nothing goes to waste. They would be so much fun to make. The creative possibilities are endless. They are so easy and inexpensive to make. I would love a key chain like this because it would be easy to find, lightweight to carry and very pretty when driving the car. Thank you for the inspiration!

I often think how much time I waste digging into the depths of my purse looking for my keys! And this reminded my of a stuffed bear key chain I had up until it broke just a few years a go. I never had this problem with that keychain! So thank you for the inspiration…this ribbon tassle keychain is just what I need!
Great idea! And you won’t lose anything this way ever again! Pretty ribbons too 🙂

I needed this back during my diaper bag carrying days! I can’t count the number of times I lost my keys at the bottom and this is so pretty!
