Funky Fimo Keyrings

Create your own key rings and bag tags with a bold circle pattern. The designs are easy to make using a combination of bright Fimo colours!

Skill Level


Time to Make

1 hour, including 30 minutes for baking Fimo.

How to Make

  1. Use 2 strips cut from a Fimo block for the background colour. Shape the clay into a ball then roll to 5mm thick on a baking tray (covered with baking paper) or tile.
  2. Break off some small Fimo pieces in several different colours, then roll into pea-sized (7-8mm) balls. Flatten the balls with your finger and press onto the background to make a circle pattern.
  3. Press some tiny Fimo balls into the middle of the circles, then carefully flatten with a rolling pin until the surface is even.
  4. Use a small cutter to cut the Fimo into a simple shape, try a circle, square or heart. Make a hole near the edge with a cocktail stick.
  5. Bake at 100ºC for 30 minutes. When the Fimo is completely cooled, use a piece of fine sandpaper to smooth down any rough edges and on the back of the design.
  6. Open a jump ring and push it through the hole then close the ring with pliers. Attach to a split ring.

Top Tip

Use wet wipes to keep your fingers clean, so darker Fimo colours don’t transfer onto the light ones.
