Pretty and reminiscent of fall, the maple seeds(keys) off the deciduous forests are beautiful and long lasting. Make that into a necklace, and enjoy the elegant outdoors aesthetic of the maple key.
Step 1: Sourcing
You'll have no trouble finding these. Either outdoors or if that's too far online you can find some. I like taking reddening ones that retain their green color as well, just for the view while working with it.
Step 2: Hole
While a drill may be the cleanest and best option, an awl or sharp objects that could be used for poking will do. Bring some into class and work on them with a pencil.
Step 3: Sealing
This is a seasonal thing, so you don't need to seal it. However, looking at the longevity of the necklace indicates you should use wood sealer or a finish of sorts.
Step 4: Enjoy!
Throw on a jump ring and chain, and enjoy the necklace! It's unique and will turn heads!
