Pins with Elysabethe: Canvas Key Holder


Elysabethe Brown, Editor-in-Chief

Trying to get a jump start on spring cleaning this year? Try creating a fun and decorative key holder to help you organize the clutter.

I originally pinned this key holder from You could use this for a variety of things such as jewelry or scarves. I choose to hang up my keys so I could find them easily while running out the door. You could also decorate the canvas in different ways using fabric, scrap book paper, or even wrapping paper.

 I choose to use two different colors of paint to create different designs along with letters so I could write one of my favorite quotes on one of the canvases.


  • Canvas (The size depends on your preference. I got mine at Michael’s craft store.)
  • Brass Cup Hooks (I also got these at Michael’s.)
  • Adhesive Vinyl Letters (I choose these as opposed to stencils because they are easy to remove if you make a mistake or just want to change your quote.)
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Pencil

Once you have gathered all of your supplies together, it’s time to get started.

Step 1: Paint your canvas whatever color you choose. If you want to leave it white then skip to step 2.

Step 2: Decide what quote or design you would like on your canvas. I sketched out where my letters would go lightly with a pencil first.

Step 3: If you painted your canvas, wait until it is completely dry. Then attach the letters on to the canvas.

Step 4: Screw your cup hooks into the bottom of the canvas.

Step 5: Hang up your key holder.
