SANTA'S MAGIC KEY DIY, FOR THE LITTLE ONES IN THE FAMILY!

   This diy comes from www.pearls-handcuffs-happyhour.blogspot.com.  This was too precious to pass up.  Just think of what your little boy or girl would do if they found one of these on their door or in their stocking on Christmas morning.  Almost reminds me of the famous bell from the "Polar Express".

Santa’s Magic Key

Have y’all seen these?! I was at the cutest little shop about a month ago and they were selling “Santa’s Magic Key”. The price tag? $20!!!! {Yeah. Ummm…just incase you don’t know me well, I’m not a “pay full price” kind of person. Like, not at all. And if it’s something I think I can duplicate on my own, well then I’m all about it. }
So I headed to Hobby Lobby & picked up some vintage style skeleton keys. I found a set of 6 on a ring and they.were. PRESH. AND, they were half off so I paid $6. {That’s like $1 a key!!!} I googled “Santa’s Magic Key Poems” and there were about a gajillion that popped up, but this is the one I liked the best…
It’s the night before Christmas & we’re excited as can be.
We’re leaving this out for you…it’s a very special key.
You can shimmy down the chimney, or tiptoe through the door.
Just use this key we left for you to find cookies, milk, & more!
I created a tag, found a fun font, & typed the poem onto the tag along with a picture of the cutest little vintage Santa. I printed out the tag, cut it, and backed it onto a thick piece of textured cardstock. Then I used my mod podge to seal it together {I really like the finish better than using a glue stick :)} & used my distress ink pad to give it a vintage-y feel.

I punched a hole in the tag & strung a little ribbon through it & attached the key. SO super easy and TOO cute {if you ask me ;)}. The boys will EAT.THIS.UP!!!!!!!

Santa’s Magic Key is all ready for him & we can’t wait for him to visit!!!
Total cost of this fun little project?! A whopping $1!!!!! The keys were about $1 a piece…I had the cardstock, ink pad, & ribbon on hand, so there was no cost there! I saved $19!!
Wanna make a magic key for Santa?! Head to the nearest Hobby Lobby…pick up a set of keys…and download the tag HERE. {Leave me a comment if the link doesn’t work…I’ll be happy to send you the template!!!} Enjoy!!!!!
