Hey guys! So glad you found your way here. Today I share with you a super simple DIY fall project. I am sharing with you a DIY leaf bowl.
For this project you will need:
1 medium size brush
1 medium size bowl/container
1 Mod Podge glue
1-2 packs of leaves (I got mine at Dollar Tree)
Inflate balloon to the desired size of the bowl you are making. Place balloon in container to keep it stable. You can also use a bowl to make this instead of the balloon. The cut a piece a Saran Wrap and place it on the balloon. I also taped the Saran Wrap to the balloon so that it would not move around while I did step 2.
Take your brush and dip into your Mod Podge and apply to the balloon. I tried not to make my coat of glue too thick.
Place leaves on glue and press. Guys to be honest, even though the supplies for this diy were simple it was a bit challenging to keep these leaves on the plastic. The leaves didn’t adhere immediately to the glue. For a short while I didn’t think that the project was going to be successful. If this happens to you just continue to cover the balloon with glue and add leaves. I made sure to add a variety of colors. After the first layer of leaves I added a second coat of glue and leaves to make the bowl somewhat sturdy.
**I did have to let this dry for at least 24 hours before I removed it from the balloon and plastic. I first deflated the balloon and then VERY carefully I removed the bowl from the Saran Wrap**
The bowl does look super cute but to be honest I don’t know if I would make this again. Getting the leaves to stick was really hard! When I looked up this project on Pinterest I found no info on how hard it was to make! But I will keep it real for you guys. For more Fall DIY projects check out my Pinterest board.
