I love when a project forces me to go outside my comfort zone and try out a new material or technique. For my latest 12 Months of Martha project, I got to try my hand at metalworking! I had fun turning sheets of thin metal into these pretty monstera leaf magnets with just a template and a simple tool.
I am currently digging the tropical leaf trend, anything metallic, and of course a pop of color, so I combined the three into this project!
I'm not one for complicated DIYs and this was as easy as tracing around a leaf template, cutting it out, and having some fun "drawing" on a few leaf details.
I used a pack of Martha Stewart metal sheets that comes in gold, copper, and black and left some leaves plain while "dipping" others in a bit of color.
It was fun crafting with a new-to-me material! Read on to see how you can make these pretty metal monstera leaves and turn them into magnets.
