How to Make a Key Fob Wristlet

I made this Key Fob Wristlet for today's post, which is sponsored by Habitat for Humanity. I am THRILLED to partner with them all of the month to share how we can all make a difference!

This cute Key Fob Wristlet project is the perfect scrap buster for your fabric stash. It makes a great housewarming gift to a new homeowner, too! See how to make your own cute key fob below.

As I mentioned, I'm creating this post for the Key Fob Wristlet in partnership with my friends at Habitat for Humanity. From now through the end of the month, you have a great way to support their fantastic mission. Go here to learn more and donate to this cause. See this key fob tutorial and get even more information below.

Habitat Key Fob
I feel like a key is the perfect symbol of home. It unlocks the door to your life, comfort, family, and so much more. This Key Fob Wristlet tutorial is the perfect way to share this fantastic campaign for Habitat for Humanity with you. I have a complete video tutorial for you at the end of the post on creating your own Key Fob Wristlet, but first, I want to tell you why HOME IS THE KEY!

Key Fob Gift

Habitat for Humanity has asked us to share one key area of our own homes. This, as you may be aware, is our family room (I shared it HERE in more detail). While it's a somewhat hidden space, tucked between the kitchen and garage...it's still the key area for our home because it's where I can most often find my entire family. We are most happy when we're sharing this space together...watching television, reading books, playing games together. But, so many families not only don't have a key area to their home...they don't have a home. And many can't afford other essentials in order to pay for the homes they do have. 


One in four households in the U.S. pays more than 30 percent of income for housing and may have difficulty affording necessities such as food or clothing. Virtually nowhere in the U.S. can a full-time employee earning minimum wage afford a one-bedroom apartment. Even two such jobs won’t rent a two-bedroom apartment in 29 states and the District of Columbia.


Home is the Key is Habitat for Humanity’s national cause campaign to address the nation’s rising affordable housing crisis. Visit habitat.org/homeisthekey to make a donation to this incredible cause. 

Key Area of Home

You can support the Habitat for Humanity cause three simple ways this month: VISIT, SHOP, and SHARE!
