Rainbow Keychain Materials

This hama bead rainbow keychain DIY gift idea is wonderful!! We love making our own gifts, something that grandparents and friends can ACTUALLY use!!

Ready to get started?

Using the round pegboard follow the pictures below and make your rainbow.

You can make a classic rainbow – with bright colors, or go the pastel route… the choice is yours!

Once you have completed your rainbow remove one of the beads to create a little hole – this is to add the key chain!

Up to you to decide where you want to add the chain. We went for the side – between the rainbow and the cloud.

TIP: make sure you add the hole in the middle – or at least 2 beads in for strength!

Give it an iron – as per your own plastic bead instructions.

TIP: Iron it well!! Keychains end up in the bottom of Mom’s bag so make sure you completely fuse the beads together!!

Then add your keychain!

This Hama bead rainbow keychain DIY gift idea is wonderfully easy and they make super cute gifts!

Child-made presents are always more special than any store-bought option, here are some other ideas to make yourself:
