Never misplace the keys in your home again with a cute Diorama Key Hook in your entryway or garage. This shadow box may remind you of a dollhouse with its perfectly petite front door piece and modern white brick background but it’s fit for any home space. See how to create this stylish key rack using a white shadow box that goes with any décor style. Our Wentworth frame has a 2-inch deep molding allowing for quite the arrangement of details inside, including your full dollhouse style scene.

Diorama Key Hook Supplies

  • Shadow box: Wentworth 11x 10
  • Cup Hooks
  • Acrylic paint

Diorama Key Hook Step 1

Paint your dollhouse front door with acrylic paint colors, as desired. We choose a teal door and white trim for a modern look.

Diorama Key Hook Step 2

Remove the backer from your shadowbox. Cover with patterned paper in the print desired. We chose a modern white brick design.

Diorama Key Hook Step 3

Reinsert backing into the shadow box.

Drill a hole in the door and insert a metal brad to create a doorknob.

If desired, dress up your door front with a vinyl number to mimic your address.

Use a drill bit to create three small holes in the bottom front of the shadow box. Screw your cup hooks into the holes and tighten.

Diorama Key Hook Step 4

Adhere door in place, lining up the bottom of the door frame with the bottom of the shadow box.

Adhere two dolls on each side to make this diorama a little homier.

Diorama Key Hook Final

Add D-Rings and wire to the back and hang it on the wall near your front door or garage space.
