First, make sure your necklace pendant is bigger than the bow of your key. The bow of your key is the part that the keychain will fit through. This will make your finished DIY Key Necklace a whole lot cuter!

Use a small dab of E6000 to attach the bow of the key to the back of the necklace pendant. You can take off any excess glue with a small bit of scrap paper.

It takes a few minutes for the E6000 to start to set. So for around 10 minutes, you may want to hold the key in place. Otherwise, you could keep your key perfectly flat by propping the key up on a sugar packet or small crumpled piece of paper. Be sure to let your E6000 dry for a full 24 hours before wearing it.

E6000 is a super strong glue, but you can test the hold before wearing your key. Just try to move the key around and see if you can gently pull it off. Most of the time, you DIY Key Necklace will have a firm hold. But every now and again you may get a bubble in the glue, making the necklace loose. If this happens, just repeat your glue step and wait for another full 24 hours for it to dry!
