Let’s face it – we’ve all been there. We’ve all lost and or misplaced a key or two in our lives. Trying to find our keys is probably among the things on which we’re wasting the majority of our time because we never seem to put them back in our purses. And when we do find them, we find them in the most unusual of places, under the sofa, in the bottom drawer of the bedroom cabinet, and even in the freezer (hey, it could happen). That’s why we all need something that will hold our keys in one place and make sure we never forget or misplace them again. Well, hopefully.
To tackle this issue, we’ve compiled a list of eye-catching key holders you can custom-make for yourself or your other forgetful loved ones. We say eye-catching because they’re so hard to ignore and it’s almost impossible for you to not break your habit of forgetting to put the keys back where they belong.
But let’s get to the point. Read our list of Top 10 Decorative DIY Key Holders and pick your favorite to make. Hopefully, this will change your life as much as it has changed ours.
