DI-WednesdaY | Mini Animal Keychains

Hello Everyone!

The idea for these key chains was, “Let’s upcycle some of those plastic animal figurines everyone has lying around”. Little did we know it was going to a journey. Five stores later, we finally found them at Michael's. So if you’re at a loss of where to find these, try your local craft store. These DIY animal key chains are easy and creative!
