I guess the reason I was so excited to make these is because not only are they rustic and fun, but they have a spiritual thought on them. My friend Britt chose a scripture reference to put on hers. But I have had this verse of "How Firm a Foundation" in my mind for weeks as I have thought about the trek. Fear not, I am with thee. I plan on using it as a teaching moment tonight (our FIRST NIGHT!!!) I really want these kids to remember that God is with us in our trials! This will be hard, but with his help, all is possible.
To make, we used some leather scraps. The thicker one is 6 inches by 3/4 inch. The thin piece is 10 inches long, and really thin. We also used a couple of wooden beads.
Punch 2 holes, one on each side of the thicker piece of leather. Poke the skinny piece through, add bead and tie knot. We used a hammer and nail to punch the hole.
These would be awesome to make for girls camp or a family reunion, too.
