Picture of Turn Your Kid's Doodles Into Personalised Ombre Jewelry

Hey Instructables, here's how I turned some random doodles by my 2 year old toddler into some fun ombre costume jewelry for all the ladies in my family.

These were a last minute gift idea for Christmas, and I got about a dozen pairs of earrings done over just a few hours. Turns out, this is a sure-fire way to please the mother, grandmothers and aunties in your child's life! Brownie points for me, and warm fuzzies all round.

Step 1: Have a Kid

Beg, borrow, or steal a kid. (or not)

Assuming you already have a kid, give the kid some paper and a pen under the guise of 'child development'. My toddler went a little wild here. You might need to reign them in a little! Treats or threats can help.

Scan in the doodle, and increase the contrast to get a nice clear black and white image.
