Creative at home. Who doesn't know them? The toy cars from Matchbox and others. They make children's eyes shine and conjure up a big grin on the faces of grown-up children too.

But it's best to make several: one for yourself and some to give away. Have fun and a good success!

DIY Instruction in 5 Steps
Step 1: Get the right toy car
First you need a suitable car. Maybe you will find one in the toy box of your kids. If not, then you're sure to find the right toy car for your key ring on ebay .
Step 2: Some preparation
These include: Sure, the bunch of keys and the car. In addition, you will need a flip-up key ring and a drill with a metal bit. I used the diameter 2.5 millimeter here.
Step 3: More preparation
Now you have to get the drill ready. Make sure that the drill bit is sitting nice and straight when you clamp it. Especially the thin drills get crooked quickly when tightened.
Step 4: Here we go!
Now it is all about finding a suitable place at the car. For example, if it hangs out of the ignition as a key (yes, there are still cars with real keys), I like it when the hood is up. And then: put a pad underneath, hold the car and let's go.
Step 5: Done!
Blow away drilling dust, thread the key ring into the toy car and the key ring is ready!
Have fun with it! Or enjoy giving it as a gift to somebody!
