Make Lacy Skeleton Leaves

Have you ever seen the paper skeletal leaves that are used for scrapbooking and other such projects?  They are gorgeous but also quite fragile.  Wanting to make a more durable version that could be used for jewelry making or other crafts, Kris at How Did You Make This? came up with a version made out of embroidery floss!  They have all of the beauty and charm of their paper counterparts but can be used in lots of different ways.  Turn them into earrings or necklaces, stitch them onto clothing, or work them into your fall decor projects – there are so many possibilities with these!  [how to make lacy skeleton leaves]
