Tennis ball key holder tutorial #DIY #cute #supereasy

So I saw this on pinterest but there was no tutorial anywhere so I thought I would make one for you guys…. Plus these are so easy and adorable,  everyone you know will want one!

You will need:
Tennis ball
Serrated knife or box cutter
Eye ball brads
Scissors
Screw/tape/stand depending on how you want to mount it

You want to cut the face on the side that does not have writing or a symbol.
Start by holding your ball in one hand and knife in the other and making a few small lines where you would like the mouth to be.

As the hole gets a little deeper,  turn the knife down into the ball and stab it through; this will allow the mouth to open completely.

image

Then make 2 small holes where you would like the eyes by stabbing gently into the ball just enough to go all the way through.    Sorry for the blurry pictures this time…. I had to hold the camera for myself and cut at the same time.

Then turn it over and immediately in the backside poke another larger hole.   This serves as the hanger…. You can put a command hook in it or a screw or a magnet on top… Whatever your needs.

Turn find some eyes.   Mine happened to be Brad Google eyes so they worked out perfect.

image

Stick them in the eye hole and then push the back of the Brad down by reaching in the mouth,  like so.

image

Then grab your  screw or hook and stick it into the hole in the back.

And you are done!   I’ve done small eyes and big eyes and both are equally fun and super easy…. Which is good because now everyone wants one.
