Free Pressed Leaf Pendant Project

While it’s still a tad early for thoughts of Christmas (you wouldn’t know it from the Christmas tree displays in retail stores though), chances are that once you see how easy it is to make this pendant, you’ll want to whip out a few extras for holiday gifts—maybe even make some nice matching earrings, too. I tell you this now so that you can gather up a nice supply of leaves (or press some petite flowers) while the getting is still good. Time it right and you can opt for fall foliage in yellows, reds, or oranges. For you crafters in the warmer climes, you can even cash in on the last of the late blooms.

This pretty little pendant is one of the 40+ super-duper easy projects featured in Mod Podge Rocks! by Amy Anderson. This piece was designed by one of the book’s guest contributors, Candie Cooper (author of Metalworking 101 for Beaders, Necklaceology, and Felted Jewelry). To make it you’ll use the amazing Dimensional Magic Mod Podge which protects embellishments while adding a nifty three-dimensional effect. After you experience DMMP once, you’ll want to squeeze it onto any flat surface. Yeah, really, it’s that cool.
