Step 1: 

Use markers to decorate your corks as much as you would like. I used earth tone colors such as orange, brown, and black, and drew "totem pole" faces, but you may choose whatever feels right!

Step 2: 

Take the eye bolts and screw them in on both the top and bottom of each of the corks, EXCEPT for the last cork on the key chain. The last cork only needs a eye bolt on the top.

Step 3: 

Using the needle-nose pliers (adults, little hands might need assistance with this), hook a jump ring to the top eye bolt of the first cork.

Step 4: 

While holding that in place (with fingers or the pliers), also hook the last ring on the keychain into the same jump ring.

Step 5: 

With both parts in the same jump ring, use the pliers to pinch the jump ring closed. Close the space of the jump ring as much as possible to assure the keychain and first cork remain connected. This process of hooking two parts into one jump ring should be repeated to attach any remaining corks on the key chain.

Step 6: 

Alo-HA! Your very own tiki keychain!
