How to Make Plastic Animal Key Chains

Create a colorful key chain using a child's favorite animal figurine! With a little spray paint and a grab and stab tool, you can turn that dino, farm or jungle animal into something to carry every day, no matter how old you are.
  • 1 Spray paint white

    Working on any disposable surface, lay the plastic animals on their sides and lightly coat each one with white spray paint. Let each animal dry for approximately 10-15 minutes.

  • 2 Flip animals

    Flip the animals over and repeat Step 1.

  • 3 Repeat

    Repeat Steps 1 and 2 again with a slightly heavier coat of white. Make sure to cover the entire surface of the animal.

  • 4 Spray with color

    With the desired color of spray paint, repeat Step 3. Make sure to cover all white areas.

  • 5 Make a small hole

    Determine the center of the animal's back. While firmly holding the animal, make a small hole in the center using the grab and stab tool.

  • 6 Attach key ring

    Twist the screw eye into the hole and attach the key ring.
