Hazel & Ruby: Elegant Key Holder

Here is a simple project using Hazel & Ruby’s versatile DIY Décor Tape, Tissue paper, Stencil-Mask and the awesome Chalk Art Tool Kit. If your household is anything like mine, keys are kept in different places and often spend time looking for them! So this key holder cupboard is perfect to store everyone’s keys and the same time remind my family that they hold the key to my heart.

STEP 1: Paint the inside of the wooden box with white acrylic paint and set aside to dry. Paint the inset panel with black chalkboard paint and set aside to dry. Paint the edges of the door with Ranger Black Tie Paint Dabber. Allow the paint to dry completely.

STEP 2: Measure the height of the box. Place a piece of 8” Damask DIY Décor Tape onto a craft mat. Measure the required length for the sides of the box and cut with a craft knife. As the DIY Décor Tape is easy to use and does not easily lose its ability to adhere after it has been placed on a craft mat, you can place the respective pieces onto the sides of the box.  Using the same method, measure, cut, place and adhere the Damask DIY Décor Tape to the inside panels of the box. Cover the wooden strips with cup hooks (only add the hooks after covering the wood with the tape) using the same method. Add decorative keys and metal keyholes to the wooden strip.

STEP 3: Once the black chalkboard paint is dry on the inset panel, paint the reverse side with Ranger Pearl Metallic Paint Dabber. While the paint is wet, spritz with Ranger Biscotti and Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearl Mists. Allow the spray to run slightly and set aside to dry. Once dry, adhere the black vinyl quote and gold Shine and Sparkle sequins.

STEP 4: Cover the front of the door with Pass the Tissue, Quote Collage tissue paper. Optional: cover the front with a second piece of the same tissue paper to create a subtle shadow effect. Paint the exposed bevel edges with Ranger Gold Metallic Paint Dabber. Cover the inside of the door with Pass the Tissue, Mod Gray/White Polka Dot tissue paper. Decorate the front with flowers and a shabby chic resin. Adhere a door knob with strong adhesive and attach two metal keys and inked seam binding ribbon to the door knob. Add a metal number painted with Ranger Gold Metallic Paint Dabber.

STEP 5: On the black chalkboard, use the on-trend first-of-its-kind  Chalk Art Tool Kit. ‘Season’ the chalkboard by taking a piece of chalk and rubbing it vertically and horizontally across the entire board. Gently clean the board with the felt cloth. If would like your board to look cleaner and more black, spray of the cleaner onto a paper towel and wipe the board.

STEP 6: Place the Brooklyn Alpha Stencil-Mask ‘NOTES’ letters onto the chalkboard. Using the chalk pencil from Chalk Art tool kit, trace around the letters. Remove the stencil-mask letters and fill in the letters with the chalk marker.
