Beaded Snowflake Key Chain Craft Kit
Really, really pretty
I really liked these, they are very pretty. They require pliers to twist the wires, which I didn't realize when I bought them. I ended up setting them up myself by doing keyring part, letting my girls string the beads, and then doing the finishing twisting myself, since they didn't have the dexterity or patience to do that. But the kids didn't seem to mind, and we all got to work on them together. They are going out as Christmas gifts next year. I would recommend using the pliers to give the snowflake attachement ring a squeeze; some of them weren't completely closed and could fall off if you don't.

Cute but more work than expected
These are really cute, but you need needle-nose pliers to twist the wire into loops on both ends to secure the key ring and the ends of the beads.

We ordered 12 packages of these to make for a special occasion and they are very pretty when made. The problem we ran into is that when they are packaged at least one to two are missing pieces or the bigger beads are broken. We actually had to order more because in the end we did not have enough because of this.

I have bought many sets like this from oriental trading and usually I can at least make the amount of items the product says it will. But this time there were so many missing or broken pieces in each kit that I could only make 7 complete key chains out of 12. The kids were very disappointed.

Easy and impressive
We made these as a gift to parents this year, and did it in less than 15 minutes! Have a needlenose pliers handy though to finish off the wire to ensure it is curled tightly. We wrapped them in little organza bags and it was a no-brainer gift the kids felt proud to make and give.

Nice but cheap materials
The key loop is very small and not made of good metal. The silver looking beads are plastic. He has glass blue beads but the "metal" looking ones are actually a cheap plastic and the silver paint came off while I assembled them.

Beaded snowflake keyring
I bought this for a senior craft and it is very simple but does require a needlenose plier to crimp the wire. It was a fast project and our seniors did it quickly.
We were missing a bead in one of our packets of 8.

Very Unique Item
This was a great product and for the price you can't beat it. Could'nt find this anywhere else. Would highly recommend.
Easy to assemble.

Cute keychain. Parent needs to help a bit.
I bought this for my 8 yr old to try and to give to a few of her friends. The key chains were pretty. However, a parent needs to help with pliers for the beginning and the end of the craft. Some of the wires were too short, and the beads often fell of the wire. As a result, we had to start over and re-do the bracelet.
