"Colors Of Faith" Cross Key Chain Craft Kit
Inexpensive Christian gift
My SS class made these one year for Easter, now we make for our Pastor to hand out to new visitors to our church. They go together rather easy, but many of the beads need cleaned. I continue to buy them!

I really like these. You almost have to have a round toothpick or something to clean out the holes or the cording frays and/or doesn't go through easily. I added a smaller ring to connect to the key ring to keep the beads/knotted cord from getting tangled, maybe adding that would help make this a better product. Other than that, this is a simple project to make. and makes a great gift. I would not recommend this for young childern (under age 7) as the holes are small and it takes some finesse to string the cording and tie the knots.

Easy to make and actually is better than the photo!
I purchased this to make as small gifts to give to adults. I copied the meaning of each bead and attached it to the key chain so the recipient would know the significance of the beads. Everyone who received it remarked how much they enjoyed the attached card! The instructions were very easy to follow.

Cute, a few missing pieces
I bought these for a Rally Day Church event. The key chains are a great idea and the kids loved them. I had to deal with broken crosses, beads without holes and missing pieces in certain packs.

Love anything with salvation colors. This was bought for our 6th grade and up and I feel it will be a good witnessing tool for them.

Worst purchase ever
Beads had closed off holes in them or holes were way too small. Several beads were even smaller than others! The cross hole had the same issues, partially closed or too small. Used this project with kids from grade 4 thru 10....was very very frustrating to most of them. Also, several kits were missing beads (all purple missing from several kits).

great price but.....
We purchased these for our church vbs. The cost is GREAT but we had to spend way too much time working with the holes on the wooden cross. They are not big enough to get the string thru. Lortunatley we had a volunteer who had some bead making tools - otherwise I'm not sure we could have used them. We are generally pretty happy with our purchase from ot :)

Had some issues, but still worth the cost
Great product, reasonable cost, good quality EXCEPT we found that the pre-drilled holes in the wooden cross and beads often required additional effort to open up the holes for threading. A bit of an inconvenience especially when working with large groups of children, but in the end the product was still a great value and fun for the kids!

Difficult to put together
I purchased this product for vacation bible school. The price range was perfect but we struggled to thread the string through the hole in the cross. We literally had to work to make the hole bigger or in some instances use sharp objects to poke the holes all the way through from one side of the cross to the other.

Fun for Sunday School. Some beads holes needed cleaning out but not bad. The kit states 12 keychains to a lot. I recieved 2 packages both with only 10 keychain kits, which could have been a problem since I didn't check ahead of time they were all there. Luckily I had enough for all the children.
