We spent a good deal of time outside this afternoon, and a small pocket of that time was spent making these super-quick leaf necklaces! To make your own, you will need a small cutting board, clear contact paper, a hole punch, string/yarn, and some metal cookie cutters.
Gather up some leaves! Emily thought these small green leaves would make perfect necklaces, so she picked plenty of them from our backyard. Press down firmly on the leaf using a metal cookie cutter on a cutting board. It may be easier to use a dishtowel on top of the cookie cutter, and then press down on top of that to keep your fingers from getting sore.
The set of cookie cutters we used can be found at Amazon, click here. They are also available at AC Moore. It is a complete set with numbers and letters, and they are SO much fun!!!
Sandwich the leaf between two sheets of clear contact paper, and use a hole punch to thread some string for your personalized necklace.
Admire your fantastic leaf necklace!!!
Emily made a couple more of these to give away to friends too!
