Use a novel armature to make decorative skeleton keys with metallic crepe chains and tassels. You’ll start by making two different basic key shapes 6 inches long, covering one with Castle in the Air’s assortment of crepe paper, Dresden trim, and “jewels.” The chains can be draped as garlands, hung from doorknobs, or wrapped around gifts. After learning the basic techniques, you’ll be encouraged to make another key incorporating your personal favorite crafting materials, with the goal of having a collection of keys covered with paper, fabric, natural materials, and found objects.
