How To Make Simple Halloween Resin Keyring’s

I have be dying to have a go at making resin keyring’s for so long, you know one of those crafts you keep thinking you will get round to having a go at. So when Jack bought me a resin kit for my birthday I was thrilled. Teens are great aren’t they? Thus, after having a play and getting it wrong first time round, I have now mastered how to make pretty but simple resin keyring with an inlaid Mickey Halloween Cut File.

Now, I have made Halloween key rings as I was dying to try out this cute Halloween template I had made. Which I thought long and hard about, ok a lovely decision to ponder over. But I was torn between do I inlay the resin with vinyl or overlay the project?

I decided to inlay it, which did work well as it makes your keyring double sided. However overlaying on heavily glittered resin keyring’s would also work well.

What You Will Need To Make Resin Keyring’s

How To Make Your Mickey Resin Keyring

Make Vinyl Inlays

Start by preparing your inlays. To ensure the keying looks great from all angles mirror your images so you have two back to back images.

Mirror your Mickey Halloween  Cut File template to ensure it fits back to back

Now size and cut your images on your chosen vinyl before carefully attaching back to back. This is super fiddly, however worth the time to get it right.

Prepare The Resin For Your Keyring’s

Wearing gloves, mix your resin in equal parts, it’s so important that the measurements are precise of the resin will not set. ( I wore the free gloves for this project, however they are over baggy, get in the way and make doing anything intricate almost impossible)

Slowly mix the resin together, mixing too fast can cause bubbles. At this stage you have 2 options, you can add glitter to the resin mix now, or alternatively sprinkle the glitter into the resin in the moulds. I have done both and both options work equally well.

You can mix the glitter into your resin or sprinkle it in the encapsulate

If You Get Resin On Your Hands?

You really don’t want to get the resin on your hands, apart from the risk of allergies, its almost impossible to get off. The resin leaves an odd squeaky film on your hands, I cant even describe it but its horrible.

When I work with resin I always have a pack of wet wipes handy. Thus if I do get it on my hands I am able to wipe them immediately before washing and applying moisturiser to get rid of the squeaky feeling.

Pour The Resin Into The Moulds To Make Your Resin Keyring’s

Now carefully pour the resin into your moulds filling halfway. Now with tweezers place your Mickey Halloween Cut File and any other letters or images you choose to add into the middle.

mix the glitter in with the resin

Allow the resin and image to settle before pouring in the rest of the resin to the top of the mould and leave for 24- 48 hours. When 48 hours is up gently peel the mould off your keyring and pop them out off the mould.

leave the resin for 24-48 hours

You can now add your key ring and tassels, the kit comes with small open loop which allows you to connect the keyring chain to the keyring, simple tighten the loop with a pair or pliers and voila you have a super cute Mickey Halloween or monogram keyring.
