9 weeks until Christmas - DIY Presents

How fast the year rolls by…with Christmas around the corner we only have 9 weeks to finalise our festive preparations. Every year I have the intention of completing my Christmas present list by the end of November. However, I love to make gifts for friends and family and I’m usually found gluing or sticking something together in the late hours of Christmas Eve.

I’ve decided to be more organized this year and I’m already looking for DIY present inspiration.

The first project I’m working on is the following faux Hermes key ring. The original key ring costs $AU 285.00 however thanks to Desiree Haigh Photography blog I’ve found the instructions to make it for $12!

To make the key ring you need to buy some leather (I found good leather via etsy http://tinyurl.com/yk77wd8), metal key ring and a hot glue gun.

The instructions on http://desireehaigh.blogspot.com/2009/01/diy-hermes-key-ring.html
are easy to follow -
Hey, presto! a beautiful leather key ring!
