Fused Beads Key Design

Got a special birthday coming up that you need to make something for? This fun large key design made from fused beads is an ideal craft for an 18th or 21st birthday in particular where keys are motifs and gifts often presented.

This makes a large beaded key which is about the size of my palm when worked with regular sized Hama or Perler beads. If you want to make it as a smaller charm for a necklace then use mini sized beads.

It's also a great make for a New Home card or gift. You can make the key and then attach it onto the front of a card or a wrapped gift for a special look.
