Father’s Day will be here before you know it. I have the perfect craft to make, because we love to whip up a handmade gift, right?! I love this Father’s Day Craft idea because every dad needs a new keychain. So let’s make a DIY Custom Photo Keychain!!
This Photo Tile Keychain is a great Father’s Day gift idea – I have given this time and time again, and it’s always a hit. And only costs a couple of dollars to make – yes, that’s right. A Custom Photo Pendant!! If you love pinning, here’s some images you can pin to save this idea for later:
I’m sure you’ve seen it around. But I’m putting an awesome twist on it for Father’s Day – – use the photo pendant on a keychain – yes!! This post may contain affiliate links.

Photo Tile Craft Tutorial
For a step-by-step detailed photo tutorial, check out my previous post, How to Make a Photo Pendant
Here’s a brief how-to outline:
–Cut out your photo image (size to 1 inch by 1 inch) and slightly round the corners
–Cover the back of the tile with a layer of Diamond Glaze
–Place the photo face-down into the diamond glaze. Press into place, making sure there are no air pockets or bubbles between the glass and the photo.
–Cover the back of the photo with a layer of Diamond Glaze to seal in the photo.
–Let dry. When it’s dry, use the super glue to attach the bail to the back of the pendant. Thread onto a keychain ring.
They are really easy to make – it just takes a few minutes. If you don’t want to go with the photo route, you could always make one with his favorite car or whatever he might like. I’ve written tutorials in the past:
