The other day we took a walk through our local ravine, where the leaves were changing and falling to the ground. Such a beautiful oasis in the city.
We also had a stupendous trip to the pumpkin patch. Where the kids ran around hunting for the perfect little pumpkin. Both of these outings inspired our latest crafty project. We decided to try creating our very own pumpkin and leaf charm necklaces. Here is how we did it.
5. Again, follow the instructions for your particular shrink film. Place the shapes on a parchment lined baking sheet. Place in a 325F oven for about 2 minutes.
6. The shapes will curl and shrink. If they start to curl onto themselves, use a spatula to straighten the shape out.
My daughter was very excited about her necklace.
To be honest I had a lot of fun making my necklace too! The finished products are fabulous. It is so amazing to see how a simple walk in a ravine can inspire such a creative keepsake!
