Im back with another fun little craft for you to try out! autumn leaf suncatchers!
- Tissue paper in red, orange, yellow and light yellow colours
- PVA or Mod Podge glue mixed with water
- Grease-proof or parchment paper
- pen and scissors
This one is going to be a little messy!! draw out a basic leaf shape onto the greaseproof paper, any shape will do and cover with glue, rip up some of the tissue paper and start sticking in whatever pattern you wish let to dry and cut out.
Hang up how you want, we stuck ours to our windows but you could make a mobile with some string.
and hopefully will look something like this.
Until next time
Jewellery making –
I love crafting, I don’t have much time or patience for it these days but before R was born I would sit and make jewellery, I started out with simple earrings, they’re pretty easy to make…
Beads, head pins, tools and the part that goes into the ear, but I wanted more, and I developed a little addiction to beads!
From then on I learnt how to knot a piece of elastic properly to prevent a bracelet from breaking to box knotting a shamballa bracelet which was all the rage a while back.
Around 2015 I got into metal stamping, I LOVE metal stamping, it’s the expensive end of the jewellery making but I love it! I have a little collection of blanks, fonts etc.. I got myself a metal polishing machine and had so much fun making things for my family and for myself.
I never sold any of it, never thought I was good enough but I loved doing it.
And honestly I have considered going back and doing it again, I just wish I had the time and the motivation to do so.
Until next time
