If you're a frequent DIYer, chances are you accumulate bits and pieces of craft materials each time you work on a project. And although you don't want to waste them, it's sometimes hard to figure out what to do with all those scraps. Fortunately, today's homemade gift idea from Craftiness is not Optional shows us a way to recycle these tidbits into a great little gift. Check it out:

To personalize these keychains, add some special finishing touches, such as a felt monogram. You can also take it a step further and embellish them with buttons or sequins. We think this is a great diy gift idea for secret Santa parties or for stocking stuffers. Or, it's a nice alternative to a bow (think: a present on top of another present!) on a gift for Mom. For the full tutorial, head over to Craftiness is not Optional.
