Best Dad Ever Keychain
Designed by Amanda Formaro
This craft is so easy for kids to make, even toddlers get into the fun. Give this gift to Dad and he will absolutely love it. A great gift for Father's Day or his birthday, he'll cherish it and carry it around proudly. Better than a tie any day!
You will need
4 football beads
hemp or jewelry cord, about 12 inches round keychain
What you do
Begin by tying a double or triple knot at one end of the jewelry cord to keep beads from falling off.
Alphabet letters often come with additional beads with hearts. Begin stringing on the beads starting with a heart, then a football, then the word "EVER" starting with the "R" first. Next string on another football, then the word "DAD", another football, next the word "BEST", and lastly the fourth football.
Tie a knot after the last football, as close to the football as you can to keep the beads close together. Double the knot.
Next, tie the long end (closest to the word "BEST") of the jewelry cord to the keychain. Knot this several times to ensure security, then trim off the excess cord.
