DIY Key Holder Plus Free SVG

Sharing is caring!

I was sick of losing my keys in my own house, so, I decided to make a key holder for my wall. This DIY wooden key holder was so simple to make.

And even though I used my Cricut Machine for the singles, it would be really easy to do this using traditional stencils. This was 1 of the easiest DIY projects I have done in a while.

This key holder idea is a great way to hold your keys, whether it’s a key leash, lanyard, or even a regular ole key ring. It’s even good for hanging the dog leash. Just hang it by the front door, I used command strips that I got from Home Depot.

The best part is that this key storage is a brilliant idea for keeping up with your key rings or other little things.

How To Make A Key Holder For The Wall

The only thing I would have done differently is that I would have added a mail shelf or some type of mail organizer. You could make it even more interesting and hang this easy DIY key holder for the wall above a coat rack.

My goal was to do something that is both playful and useful at the same time. And the Cricut and I delivered another masterpiece. And I used command strips for an easy-to-install wall decorative DIY key holder.

I added the other important things you never want to leave the house with like your phone and wallet too when I typed out the text for the design.

To start, you will need to gather these supplies, and then you will be ready to make your own key holder. 

Supplies:

Can I Use Any Kind Of Wood To Make A Key holder?

Yes, you can use and kind of wood that you want for your wall key holder. 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!

    How Do You Make A Keyholder?

    The easy way is to grab a wooden board from some place like Walmart or Home Depot. The best part of grabbing the wood or wooden frame from there is not having to deal with wood glue. After you have your board you can use wood stain or paint it, I like white paint or whitewash. Or you can leave it as it is when you bought it.

    Add some words or other little details and finish with small hooks. Now you have a wooden key holder to hold all of your key rings and key chains.

    How Do You Attach A Key Holder To The Wall?

    I use command strips in my house for everything. There are strips that work for big and little things. So the final step in this project would be to add some strips to the back and then find a special place to hang the finished product.

    You need to find an ideal place with a flat surface if you are going to use command strips to hang it. This key storage is a brilliant DIY idea for a gift, or even for your own home.

    It’s such a small project that takes very little effort to complete. Just follow the easy tutorial to learn how to make a diy key holder.
