DIY Fall Leaves Bowl
We have told you of pretty autumn leaf lamp and here’s one more idea of the same type. You’ll need craft store leaf garland, Mod Podge, a foam brush, a balloon, scissors, a mixing bowl. Begin by snipping the leaves off the strand of garland. Leave about 1/8″ at the base. Carefully rip the plastic stem off of the faux leaves. Fill up your balloon to size. With your Mod Podge in a cup nearby, gently apply a thin layer on top of your balloon, starting in the middle and working your way out. Lay a leaf on top of the wet Mod Podge and apply another layer on top of the leaf. Repeat covering any empty spaces with smaller leaves. When you reach about a quarter of the way down the balloon, add one or two leaves to the bottom of the bowl for extra weight and support. Allow to dry at least an hour. When the Mod Podge is dry, carefully pop your balloon with a pin at the tied end, slowly letting the air out. Use your bowl to hold potpourri, sweets or candies and enjoy your work!
