If you’ve found yourself stuck and looking for an exciting project to try out, then there is no better place to turn to for inspiration than mother nature. The cannabis plant is one of the few plant species to produce such long delicate leaves with precisely 7 points, which is the reason why it is so often used as an icon on stoner memorabilia. Here we will show you how to make 5 different pot leaf crafts that you can wear or place on display, and all of them are ideal for beginner crafters.

1. Tie-dye pot leaf shirts

If you are a fan of cannabis and want to proudly display your passion, then turning a plain t-shirt or shorts, or any other piece of clothing to a tie-dye will be suitable enough. This craft brightly shows off the marijuana leaf shape for all to see:

You will need

  • String
  • Several large marijuana leaves
  • Tie-dye colors
  • Piece of clothing
  • Large container
  • Stirring tool


  1. Start by laying the piece of clothes flat over a clean working surface and scattering the pot leaves across it.

  2. Next start from one side and tightly roll up the shirt to contain the leaves, and once finished, use the string to tightly fasten the roll into place.

  3. Fill your container with 50% water and then add in your tie-dye colors before dropping the wound-up clothing into the mixture.

  4. Use a stirring tool to move the material around until all of the dye has been absorbed or when you are satisfied with the level of coverage.

  5. Remove the clothing from the bin and set it out to dry. In approximately 24 hours your brand-new tie-dye clothing will be ready to use

2. Nail art

Most stereotypical stoner apparel doesn’t take into account the elegance that many female consumers would love to boast, but that can be solved with a quick and simple nail art that doesn’t take a professional or even any experience to pull off.

You will need

  • Your favorite colored nail polish
  • Several small pot leaf pieces
  • Clear topcoat


  1. Apply a coat of any color of nail polish and allow it to dry completely before moving on.

  2. Place tiny marijuana leaves onto one nail at a time and fasten them in place with a small amount of topcoat like glue.

  3. Finish the job by sealing in the gorgeous pot leaf pieces with one final layer of clear coat for protection.

3. Marijuana leaf collage

Whether you enjoy projects like scrapbooking or are merely seeking a unique way to create a piece of art or border, this marijuana leaf collage is perfect. You can make a beautiful collage using multiple different techniques, so feel free to experiment while you go along, but the simplest way to use a pot leaf in this manner is as a stamp.

You will need

  • Paint
  • Background
  • Different sizes of marijuana leaf
  • Clearcoat (optional)
  • Palette


  1. Choose one of several leaves to use as stamps and prepare the paint by adding a small amount to a plate or palette.

  2. Dip the pot leaf into your color of choice and press it to whatever surface you would like to decorate.

  3. A thick layer of some type of sealant is recommended for display pieces that will be located in high traffic areas.

4. Weed leaf crown

For the stoner chick that loves nature-based décor, a pot leaf crown is something that can be worn to make a statement that no one will match.

You will need

  • 10-20 large pot leaves
  • Hemp string (or another binding material)
  • Hole punch


  1. Measure the circumference of your head with the string and leave 3-4 inches extra before making a cut.

  2. Use a small hole punch to pierce 2 small circles into either side of the leaves so that you can feed the hemp string through them.

  3. It may be a good idea to get assistance for this part as it is best to tie the knot while the crown is placed on your head and be sure to tie it tight enough that it won’t slide around with your movements.

  4. Cut away any excess string and proudly display your homemade crown.

5. Pot leaf blunt

Typically consumers will smoke weed through papers that add an unnecessary element that can impact the taste and health benefits of marijuana. The pot leaf blunt offers an all-natural wrap that can complement the flavors of the cannabis plant.

You will need

  • Dry cannabis
  • Large weed leaf
  • Grinder
  • Blunt glue (optional)


  1. Get the biggest marijuana leaf that you can find and roll it between your fingers to make it more moldable.

  2. Grind up your buds and fill the middle of the pot leaf just like you would with any other marijuana roll.

  3. Use your fingertips to roll the grind down into the weed leaf and roll it up using a small amount of moisture or blunt glue to stick the edges of the paper.
