Santa's Key

Santa's Key

Updated: Dec 1, 2019


Earlier this summer, I purchased a flat of large skeleton keys in the box lots section at an auction. I had planned on just pricing them and putting them in a bowl in one of my booths.


As I was getting my booths ready for the holidays, I had an idea. Why not make them "Santa Keys". Keys for Santa when you do not have a chimney or a fireplace in your home. I went to Pinterest and found several examples.

I just needed to create an instruction tag. I had these gift tags in my gift wrap stash.

I created an instruction tag with my Adobe InDesign Software and printed it out on parchment paper.


I used rubber cement to attach the instructions to the tag.


I used braided cord to attach the tag to the key and then tied a bow with a flannel red and cream plaid ribbon.



This is the finished piece. It was really simple and took less than an hour to do all ten keys.

Whether my junk is from a garage sale, estate or farm auction, flea market or the side of the road, I love to find it, fix it, clean it, sell it or keep it.
