I was sick of losing my keys in my own house, so, I decided to make a key holder for my wall. This DIY wall mounted 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, wether its a key leash, lanyard or even a regular ole key ring. Its even good for hanging the dog leash.
And it did wonders for my interior design. All you need to make this key rack, was a piece of wood and some hooks. Now you have a cool place to put your keys, that also double as home decor.
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.

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!
What Size Of Barn Wood Do I Need?
One thing that is awesome about this DIY key holder project is you can choose how big you want the wooden plank to be. I went with a 12-inch pre-cut, pre-treated rustic wood piece because it fits perfectly in my space.
Is This DIY Key Holder For Walls A Beginner Craft?
Yep, making this DIY key holder 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 key holder. I used my Cricut to make the stencil because I just love it, and it’s so easy for me to use. You can also purchase some.
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.
These cute little key organizers are great to hang your keys. If you are anything like me you leave the keys everywhere in the house and can never find them.
