- Wood key (I used a 12-inch key)
- White craft paint
- Large chunky glitter
- EnviroTex Lite Pour-on High Gloss Finish
- Glitter letters
- Stir sticks
- Measuring cups
- Mixing cups
Start by painting the key white. You will want to paint all surfaces. Paint one side, allow to dry, then flip and paint the other side. Allow the entire key to dry completely before continuing.
Then add decoupage to the front and liberally sprinkle with glitter. Shake off any excess and allow to dry completely.
Then add on glitter sticker letters spelling out Santa’s key. You may have to use glue to get these to stick to the glitter depending on how strong the adhesive is on the stickers.
Then measure and mix your resin according to the package directions. The mixing is the most important part. You will also want to be sure to follow all safety precautions when working with this product.
Then I used a couple of extra measuring cups to lift it up off of my work surface. Please note that my work surface is covered in disposable paper as well. Then just pour on the finish until the entire front of the key is covered but it is not spilling over the sides.
Allow curing for approximately 24 hours in a level position. Then you will have a cute Santa’s key to hang on your front door this year for the holidays! Just add on a ribbon.
Santa will not miss your house as he can use this magic key to enter on Christmas Eve.
Your little ones will love hanging Santa’s key on the outside of the door year after year.
And you will love how durable this finish is and how it lasts for a really long time!
So, be sure to grab your supplies and make Santa’s magic key today!
