Home Key Hook | Home Is Where You Hang Your Keys

In this post: A Home Key Hook because Home Is Where You Hang Your Keys

A few months ago, my husband asked if I would make a key hook.  That was a very reasonable request since he hangs his keys with the measuring spoons and I go on a goose chase to find where I put mine.

I was in the midst of my 15 Days of Chalking projects, so I didn’t have time to do it just then.  But then I received the Home &  Wreath transfer in the mail.  I waited until all my kids had gone home from visiting over Christmas to make his key hook.

Here’s the inspiration sign from Chalk Couture.  I love that they give examples so you can just make one like it if desired.

Chalk Couture Home & Wreath Chalkboard Sign I found another sign to use as my inspiration though from the dollar store of all places.

I have it inside the wreath in my remodeled bathroom.  It looks like it has blueberries on it, so I went with that idea for my key hooks.

Here’s how I did it. First I stained the wood plaque and added “home”.

I forgot to take a photo of doing “HOME” on the plaque.  The black paste bled a bit under the transfer because of the wood grain.  It wasn’t bad, so I didn’t mind.  The wreath comes with registration marks so you can easily line up the three parts of the design.

I put washi tape under the first layer so I could chalk over them for the next layer.

For the first layer I used Garden Herb chalk paste.  It’s not too bright of a green.  I dried between each layer.


For the second layer I used Storm chalk paste to keep it from looking like a Christmas wreath.

For the last layer I used Midnight Sky chalk paste for the berries.

I’m really happy with how it turned out.  Now we finally have a real spot for our keys.

His keys are hanging on the hooks, but I forgot to hang mine!  I have them on a carabiner clip and they were on my belt loop when I took these photos.

I can’t wait to use this transfer again for other seasons.
