As the kids have gotten older, I’ve realized that living within walking distance to our neighborhood school is kind of the best thing ever. Being able to walk them, to and from school, means a little bit of fresh air each day and some quality time to chat with the kids. I don’t bring a purse with me because I don’t need it but there are a few things that, of course, I always need to have with me. And this Make Your Own Keychain bracelet is the perfect accessory!

I always have my phone with me and except for just a few outfits, I usually can stash it in a pocket (even though I usually just hold it in my hand). And I always have my keys. Yes, those can go in a pocket, but my hip and behind area don’t need any bulking up from outside objects.
If you aren’t into the idea of a DIY, scroll down! I’ve got a bunch of super cute options from Amazon!
Then I saw a key bracelet in a magazine.
What is a Keychain Bracelet?
It’s basically a bracelet to hold keys. No need for physically holding on to it, you literally just wear your keys. I had all the pieces to make my own keychain bracelet. So I did. And then I had to make sure you thought of this too so you can wear your keys.
It couldn’t be easier to make a bracelet key holder!
Why You Need a Wearable Keychain
I mentioned before that I like to wear my DIY bracelet keychain while I pick up the kids from school. But I also like to use it when I go to the store. I like that I know exactly where my keys are and don’t have to go searching for them in the bottom of my big old bag.
These are also great on bike rides. I haven’t picked up any leggings with pockets yet and any of the pockets on my jeans make it super uncomfortable to ride with keys in them.
These are also great for ball games when you don’t want to bring a bag with you but need to have a place for your car keys. There really isn’t a time when this key chain idea would be a bad idea!
Make Your Own Keychain Bracelet
A bracelet keyholder is genius, really. And I can’t believe I didn’t come up with this myself. I grabbed a simple bangle that I already had and took apart a keychain that had too many long things dangling from it. And put them together. Boom. Done.
How easy is that?! And now I have my hands free. Which you know you need when you are at school pick up. Or am I the only one whose kid lobs their backpack at them?? So simple! It’s a DIY keychain that takes just a few minutes to make from the time you roam around your home and find the pieces to actually being able to wear it out the door. That’s my favorite kind!
