Keys are my nemesis. I have tried having a bowl for them by the door, that didn’t end up being very convenient. So then we moved on to hanging them on the coat hooks. Not so convenient either. So I finally got around to creating a cut key holder to hang by the door and keep everything from house and car keys to mower and shed keys handy.

Turns out everything I needed to make a key holder was right at my fingertips. With a little scrap wood and the help of my Silhouette Cameo 3, our keys have somewhere to live.
1 Piece 1/2″ Plywood cut to 12″x15″
3/4″ Trim cut as follows
- 2 pieces @ 15″
- 2 pieces @ 13.5″
- Use ones like this that screw in easily
Wood Stain of your choice
Silhouette Cameo 3
1. Attach the trim pieces to the plywood using wood glue and 1 1/4″ nails.
2. Drill pilot holes for your hooks.
3. Stain your wood.
4. Add hooks.
I left 3 inches at the top and then spaced the hooks two inches apart from top to bottom. Staggering the hooks allows you to have the maxim1um amount of key storage without the keys being too crowded.
I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 to make a self adhesive “welcome home” to add to my key storage. I think it is the perfect message to see when hanging my keys up at the end of the day.
I created the image using PicMonkey, saved it to my computer and then sent it to my Cameo 3 to be cut out.
Now every key has a place to live!
