Monogram Charms, Keychains and More!

We’ve turned our resin monograms into fun, decorative charms by attaching some jewelry fasteners like chains, rings and eyelets to the tops of each letter. But they can just as easily be used as a monogram keychains if you’d prefer. Instead of a lobster clip, I would use these stainless steel key rings to hold all the chains at the top. Whatever your preference, we’ll show you ow to make your own resin letters.

We used the same ETI’s EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy to make these resin feather pendants as well as these pressed flower fridge magnets. We love how the same product can be used to make so many different projects, all with beautiful, lasting results.
