I love old antique skeleton keys. I had this one laying around and some extra lace fabric so I decided to make a bookmark out of it. This is for sure the easiest diy project I've ever done and I think it's so cute. Plus I love how it looks with this old art book from the 1800s my aunt gave me. It makes reading even more fun when you have a pretty little bookmark to save your place. All you need is a long thin piece of fabric and an old key. You can usually find skeleton keys at antique stores or even swamp meets. As far as the fabric, use any kind you like. I really like diy projects where I'm using things I have around the house, sort of like recycling.
I'm currently using the bookmark for my book of the month, The Glass Castle, which by the way has turned out to be a great book. I just have one more chapter to go! It's a really amazing and true story of how the author grew up and her eccentric family. The things she had to go through makes me thankful for what I have. Even though the book can be sad at times, the author, Jeannette Walls, has a great way for finding humor in situations. I highly recommend this book.
I hope you all are having a great Halloween!
