A puzzle keyring is made from a puzzle piece. Making one provides a neat way to distinguish your keys and help you to find them. Some puzzle keyrings can be made from children's jigsaw puzzle pieces, nature jigsaw puzzle pieces or rubic's puzzle pieces. Regardless of the type of puzzle piece you choose to add to your keyring, it will provide flair and colour to your ring of keys.

  1. 1

    Locate one or two pieces of a jigsaw puzzle you'd like to use on your keyring. Puzzle pieces that contain bright colours or partial pictures look best. These are also the pieces that will entertain children the most. Make sure you choose a puzzle piece you will be comfortable putting into your pocket.

  2. 2

    Punch a hole in the jigsaw puzzle piece with your hole punch device. Ideally a handheld hole puncher that creates holes one-quarter inch to one-third inch in diameter works best. Make sure you make the hole in a sturdy part of the puzzle piece. The keyring could pull loose by tearing the puzzle piece if the hole is too close to the edge.

  3. 3

    Slide the puzzle piece onto the keyring. Hold the ring in your hand and feel the piece. Verify that the combination doesn't feel bulky in your pocket.

  4. 4

    Add your keys to the keyring. Put it in your pocket. Make sure that your new puzzle keyring fits comfortably in your pocket.

Tips and warnings

  • Choose puzzle pieces that are sturdy.
  • Select puzzle pieces that are entertaining and interesting.
  • Never punch holes close to the edge in puzzle pieces.
