Jenga Keychains {{by Sarah}}

It’s Sarah again. Thanks to my sis Ellen for allowing me to guest post again!   I still love to create new things from old things, so when I saw this cute keychain tutorial here, I knew that I had to make some. While browsing  a local thrift shop, I ran across these blocks for $1. They were screaming “pick me, pick me!” Funny how that happens when you have a project in mind, and the supplies you need just seem to talk to you. :c) Gotta love those thrift shops for inspiring creativity!

Maps, vintage music, dictionary pages, scrapbook paper, fabric…        Oh, the possibilities are endless!
Thanks, Ellen, for letting me visit your blog again. Love ya!

Here is the keychain Sarah gave to me!

So cool! Ha, my girls just got a set of Jenga's for Christmas. I'll be waiting for them to get sick of theirs, but until then I'll keep my eyes peeled at the thrift store!
Happy 2012!

What a brilliant idea! I can never find a key chain that seems right for me, but this would be so easy to personalize. Yours look great!

Great gift idea! Think I'll be on the lookout for some little blocks like that. I knew this blog was meant for me to look at as soon as I saw yours and your sister's names. My name is Ellen and my daughter's name is Sarah. LOL And look what happened; a super idea to make up soon!

How cool! What a great way to use the Jenga pieces!

Etcetorize said...

What a smart idea! I even just like the look of the wooden pieces with paper on them. You could still use them to play Jenga ... if you don't mind loud messy games~ Thanks for linking up at Etcetorize!

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

We just got jenga for Christmas! Love this idea!

Terrie said...

Hi Sarah, you're as creative as Ellen. Such a cool idea to do with jenga. Will have a go.

Steph @ Crafting in the Rain said...

So Cute! My 3 year old loves to play jenga with me, but really we just build towers and knock them down :)

This is so cute, especially if your jenga game is missing pieces already! Genius

Mary said...

Really cute idea!

Coupon Clippin' Mommy said...

I found Jenga in my MIL game closet a few months back and I'm not a fan so I might just have to make a LOT of keychains! I'm guessing the eye screws are available at craft stores?

Jill said...

These are A-MAZ-ZING! love it!
