Can You Make Acrylic Keychains With Cricut?

Cricut is a cutting machine that can be used for a variety of craft projects. It can be used to cut paper, vinyl, fabric, and even thin sheets of metal and wood.

One popular use of the Cricut is to make custom acrylic keychains. With a few simple tools and supplies, you can easily make your own personalized keychains using your Cricut.

To begin making your keychains, you will need some basic supplies. You will need acrylic sheets in the size and thickness that you want for your keychain.

You will also need some adhesive or double-sided tape to attach the acrylic to the Cricut cutting mat. You will also need an adhesive such as E6000 glue or hot glue gun to attach the jump rings and other findings.

Once you have all the necessary supplies, it’s time to start designing your keychains. Using the Cricut Design Space software, you can create a variety of designs for your keychains.

You can use pre-made designs or create custom designs using shapes, text, and images. Once you have created your design, you can then cut it out using the Cricut machine.

When cutting out your design with the Cricut machine, make sure you use the correct settings for cutting acrylic sheets. It is important to set the pressure at a low setting so that it does not crack or break the acrylic sheet during cutting. Once cut out, remove any excess plastic from around the edges with an X-Acto knife or sandpaper.

After removing any excess plastic from around the edges of your design, it’s time to add some color! Acrylic paint works great for this project as it adheres well to acrylic surfaces and dries quickly. After applying two coats of paint (or however many coats you prefer) let it dry completely before moving on to attaching any findings such as jump rings or charms.


Making custom acrylic keychains with a Cricut is easy and fun! With just a few supplies and some creativity, you can create beautiful personalized keychains that are sure to stand out!
