What is Santa's Magic Key?
For children who live in homes without a chimney the subject of Santa can cause great distress. Santa's key is the solution to this architectural dilemma by providing magic means for Santa to open your door on Christmas Eve.
Children in apartments, condos, townhouses, trailers, and tents can breathe a sigh of relief knowing they won't be passed up by the Man in Red.

How to Make Santa's Key
But Christmas is a time of magic, so let's create a beautiful tassel keychain worthy of Santa!
Magic Key Tassel Keychain
Step 1. Wrap String Around Book
First, wrap your yarn around a hard cover book 20-30 times. Choose a book the finished length you are looking for. This book is 5″ wide for a 6-1/2″ long tassel
Step 2. Add Ribbon Twine and Tie
Next, add different ribbons and textured yarn to add dimension and interest to your tassel. I wrapped my ribbons 2-4 times depending on their thickness and pattern.
The more pattern the less you need. However, you can increase the number of loops for the eyelash yarn and silver baker's twine because they are subtle.
Then, use the side opposite the book binding, where the cut ends of the pages are. The edges of the cover creates a small gap large enough to thread a length of yarn under and through. Now tie it off tightly in the center. Leave these tails as they will tie onto your key.
Step 3. Trim Bottom
Next, slide the yarn off the book and cut the bottom loops. Now trim the bottom of each ribbon into a nice angle so they all look finished.
Step 4. Tie Tassel Top
Finally, comb the yarn and ribbon with your fingers to straighten and tie with baker's twine 1-1/2″ from the top to create the tassel knob.
Congrats! Your magic tassel keychain is complete.

Once your tassel is finished, add a ribbon if desired to the base of the knob and tie your pretty key to the ends. Print and cut Santa's Magic Key Poem and attach to key using additional twine.
