Here's what you need to create Dollar Tree Flying Keys:
- Laser Cut Wooden Keys – Dollar Tree
- Dazzling Metallics by DecoArt Acrylic Craft Paint – Splendid Gold
- Vellum Paper
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks – Dollar Tree
- Paintbrush, Small Flat
- Scissors – I love my Fiskars!
- Tombow MONO Twin Permanent Marker
- FLYING KEYS WING PATTERNS – download below ⇓
How to make Dollar Tree Harry Potter Flying Keys:
To begin the Harry Potter Crafts DIY Flying Keys, gather all supplies. Remove supplies from their packaging. This package of six laser-cut wooden keys was found with the stickers and the stamps in the craft section of Dollar Tree.
Topcoat the laser-cut wooden keys with Dazzling Metallics Splendid Gold acrylic craft paint in a random fashion, allowing some of the wooden base to peek through in certain areas. Use a dabbing motion with a flat paintbrush. Let paint dry completely. The Dazzling Metallics from DecoArt have the sparkle and shine of gold leaf without the price!
Download the HARRY POTTER FLYING KEYS WINGS PATTERN below ⇓ onto your computer and then print onto vellum paper with black ink. Vellum paper is transparent like tracing paper, but heavier like cardstock. The perfect paper for these wings. I love this package from Amazon because you get double the amount for half the price of the big box craft stores. Carefully cut the wing patterns out of the vellum paper with scissors.
Attach the vellum paper wings to the gold-painted laser-cut wooden keys with a glue gun and glue sticks just under the handle of the key. Mix and match the wing and key patterns for added interest. NOTE: You could use liquid craft glue for this project, but you would have to wait for it to dry.
I specifically hand drew these wings with my favorite MONO Twin Permanent Marker from Tombow to be the correct size for the Dollar Tree Wooden Keys. If you can't find these keys then look around thrift stores for old keys or this set of 40 reproduction vintage skeleton keys would be perfect.
