Fall is here and the leaves are falling right into this fun pendant tutorial

I absolutely love this time of year especially here in northern Florida where we get a break from the 90+ degree temps. I live in the country surrounded by trees so that was definitely the inspiration for this pendant tutorial. I wanted to find a way to combine a bunch of leaf molds to make something whimsical and fun. Create a long with me while I show you how I made this fun polymer clay leaf pendant.



Find all the molds I used in the shop:

Design Team Roundup- Halloween Ideas in polymer clay

Check out these fun ideas for Autumn and Halloween from the design team!

Let's start with a really interesting interpretation of the Fleur Fancy mold. Chris's mind really took this one for a spin! Remember we've talked in the past about seeing and using your molds in new ways and this little owl really shows how you can do that.



When I was young, my mom did a Holiday tree that we left up all year long. She would decorate it for every little holiday and birthday, graduations and events, you name it. Pat's SpookyTree reminds me of that. She used the Happy Fall plunger cutters to make easy cute ornaments.



For those of you who are more interested in the darkly romantic Gothic side of the season, check out Klavdija's jewelry, created with Wing & flower molds and Fleur Fancy.



And for some more Halloween fun, here's another use of the Shrine kit and cutters to create decor and jewelry from Suzanne!

Art Jewelry Adventure has lots of projects to expand your jewelry making skills!

There are classes in soldering, torch fired enameling, resin, metal clay, quilling, sutache, wire work, molding, mixed media (painting, stamping, etc) shrink plastic, and epoxy and polymer clay. We have tried to keep it down to materials you can easily get and nothing requires a kiln- so maybe you might need to pick up some things you don't have if you want to try something new, but the most "exotic" thing you might need is a butane torch.
