How to Make Decorative Key Tops

Glam up your keys with a little nail polish.
Materials List

Solid metal keys - not car keys

Other small decor, like glitter, plastic confetti, permanent markers, etc. (optional)

How to
Step 1

Your keys should be solid metal. Clean your keys with alcohol and let dry completely before you begin.

Step 2

Paint the tops of the keys with your nailpolish, near where the hole for a keyring is. Do not get any on the "carved" part of the key, as this can get stuck in your lock and cause it to jam! Paint it with multiple, thin coats, allowing it to dry in between.

Step 3

You can also add a bit of glitter, or small, plastic-based confetti, and seal it in with clear nail polish.
