Patina Key Necklace for Travelers | Travel Like a Prince Blog

While I’m traveling, I love picking up a little something here and there that I can turn into a souvenir. Often antique stores and vintage shops will have keys readily available, which I think would make a fun, wearable keepsake. Here is how to make your own patina key necklace to enjoy!

patina key necklace supplies

  • vinegar
  • hydrogen peroxide
  • salt
  • vintage metal key
  • necklace chain
  • glass or plastic bowl

DIY instructions

  • Pour just enough vinegar into the bowl to cover the key. Let key sit in the vinegar for 10 minutes.
  • Add in the same amount of hydrogen peroxide as you did the vinegar (equal parts) to the key in the bowl.
  • Sprinkle salt over the key.
  • Let this mixture sit for an hour or even more. This all depends on how much of a patina you would like on your key.
  • Dry, seal (optional with a spray sealer), and hang on a necklace chain.
  • Enjoy!
