Our patriotic ribbon keychain is for St David's Day but obviously can be adapted for any patriotic holiday by changing the colours! Use it to decorate a backpack or pencil case, or even to hold some keys!
You will need:
Keyring fixing (optional: you could make this tied directly to a bag or pencil case zipper)
Beads in red, green and white
Red, green and white thin ribbon
Group your ribbons together and then tie them to your keyring fitting.
Plait your ribbons, threading on a bead occasionally.
Tie a knot near the end of the ribbons, leaving the last inch or so of ribbon hanging loose.
