monogram keychain

Monograms are a great way to personalize gifts! This project is fun as a simple keychain but how cute would they be clipped to a purse or backpack?
Step 1

Mix equal parts resin and resin hardener. Stir slowly with a silicone tool until completely mixed. Divide resin into three small plastic cups.

Step 2

Add white translucent dye to one portion of resin. Add red changing powder to a second and blue changing powder to the third. Stir to incorporate into resin.

Step 3

Add white resin to the top portion of each monogram letter. Add blue and red resin to the bottom half of each monogram letter.

Step 4

Add Gold foil flakes to each monogram using a silicone tool. Apply heat with a heat gun to help any bubbles raise to the surface. Set aside.

Step 5

Allow resin to cure in the molds for 12-24 hours until set. Remove letters from molds.

Step 6

Use jewelry pliers to shorten a headpin. Glue shortened headpin into the top of each resin monogram. Attach monograms to keychains.
