Really easy, wooden beads, dye, and leather string and you have a really cool keychain.

You will need:

wooden beads in different sizes, make sure that they are untreated

fabric dye, I only use Rit Dye

leather string


  1. Start by mixing the colors as directed on the bottles. I used two different colors.
  2. Dip the beads in the dye, the longer they are in there the darker they become.
  3. Rinse them and let them dry.
  4. Thread the beads on the string, tie and and leave the two end a little longer.
  5. Tie a small knot on each end.
