Gone are the days of getting out of the house without your things when you make this DIY keyholder! The barn wood is stunning and is perfect for rustic or farmhouse style decor.
How many times do you make it to your vehicle and realize you forgot your keys? Or they ended up placed somewhere on the counter, and your toddler ran off with them.
Now you hang easily hang them on this DIY keyholder and never lose them again.
How To Make A DIY Keyholder
Once again, Cricut swooped in and gave me an amazing craft idea. You can customize this DIY keyholder organizer with any wording you like.
My goal was to do something that is both playful and useful at the same time.
I added the other important things you never want to leave the house with like your phone and wallet too.
Just like most of my other crafts, this DIY keyholder would make an awesome gift for friends or family.
Not to mention, if you like to make things to sell, this key hanger is inexpensive to make so you should be able to make a decent profit too.
To start, you will need to gather these supplies, and then you will be ready to make your own keyholder.

Can I Use Any Kind Of Wood To Make A Keyholder?
Yes, you can use and kind of wood that you want for your DIY keyholder. If you have something on hand, that’s completely fine.
But, make sure that the wood is cleaned and treated properly, so there are no pests or chemicals.
I like to be able to buy the pieces I want, and I don’t have to use a saw or other tools.
Pre-cut wood that is intended for projects if you don’t have a saw or a place to store the wood.
Even better, you never have to leave the house because it can be delivered right to your door. That is a WIN in my book!
What Size Of Barn Wood Do I Need?
One thing that is awesome about this DIY keyholder project is you can choose how big you want the wooden plank to be.
I went with a 12-inch piece because it fits perfectly in my space.
Is This DIY Keyholder A Beginner Craft?
Yep, making this DIY keyholder is an amazing craft for a beginner.
You don’t have to be a professional DIY’er to whip one of these babies together.
And even if you are still super experienced, you will enjoy putting together the key hanger and the results.
Do I Have To Make A Stencil?
No, you don’t have to make a stencil for this DIY keyholder.
I used my Cricut to make the stencil because I just love it, and it’s so easy for me to use.
I can come up with all sorts of designs, and I don’t even have to leave the house. You can easily purchase a stencil (or as many as you want) for this project.
Whether you shop online or hit the stores, you are going to find that there is a lot of variety out there. Don’t be afraid to try all sorts of designs and wording.

You could add them to a wall, or you could do what a reader, Krystina, did and add them to the side of your kitchen cabinet for example. Her photo is above, and she explained, “We have hooks on the side of our kitchen cabinets. When you walk in, it’s behind the door.”
First things first, it’s time to organize those keys into a meaningful order. Lay all your keys (and anything else on your keychains) out on a table. Pick through and get rid of anything you don’t want and keys you don’t use anymore. Then, group your keys together by function.
