DIY Key Holder Hooks for Entryway: Farmhouse Style

This cute farmhouse style entryway key holder with repurposed hooks is the perfect way to adding a welcoming touch to your front door. Plus, it keeps your keys organized!

If you’ve seen my original entryway makeover, you know that adding a few simple pieces to your front door area can make a big difference.

While these DIY key holder hooks look like they cost a lot from a high-end retail store, this Cricut craft is actually inexpensive and easy to make! Find some items in your junk drawer – such as old keys or clothespins – to make the hooks.

Then, using some paint and a frame, you can make this stylish entryway sign.

How to Make a Farmhouse Style Key Holder with Hooks



  1. Remove the aluminum from the frame and setting it aside. 
  1. Apply a coat of gray primer to the frame and let dry. Then add a second coat.
  1. Once dried, paint your frame with two coats of white paint. Let dry completely! 
  1. Using sand paper, lightly sand the surface of your frame to create a distressed look. 
  1. Next use your ruler and pencil to mark where your key hooks will go. Make sure they are evenly spaced. 
  1. Create the Hello vinyl decal in Cricut, using black vinyl. (This step is very similar to creating the decal for my Hello Sign. Be sure to look at that tutorial if you’re new to using a Cricut machine.)
  1. Next, transfer your decal onto your aluminum using Cricut transfer tape. I used a credit card to remove any air pockets while applying the decal.
  1. Place your aluminum back into the frame.
  1. If you are using keys or clothes pins glue them in place using a generous amount of glue.  If you are using hooks screw them in place.
