This is a DIY craft for at home decoration.

To create your own decorative DIY leaf bowl all you will need is:

  • 1 balloon
  • Your choice of leaves
  • A bowl to hold your balloon in place
  • Paint brush or foam brush
  • Mod Podge (matte finish)
  • Scissors

Step 1: Cut the Stems of Your Leaves

The first thing that you need to do is cut the stems off your leaves. Using scissors cut to the edge of the leaves and throw the stems away.

<p>do u think you could use other glue instead of this one </p>
How do you ensure the balloon comes out completely? As it is glued is it difficult to peel off the inside or do you coat it with something first like WD50?
<p>These are beautiful! I think it would be neat to use a fruit bowl. </p>
<p>I used to do this with newspapers and make it into a paper latern</p>
<p>I've done that too! There are so many different materials you can do this with.</p>
way cool! +1 on the autumn leaves
<p>Thank you!</p>
They look great. About how many leaves did you use for one bowl? I love the one with the autumn leaves.
<p>Thanks! To answer your question, it all depends on the size of the leaves you chose to use and <br>also how deep you make the bowl. Its really up to you. Also it depends on how <br>much you chose to layer the leaves.</p>
<p>good idea!</p>
<p>Thank you!</p>
<p>Awesome !! This has come out real nice, I use make some thing similar with my Granny when I was little..thanks for jogging my memory.</p>
<p>I'm glad you enjoyed my project!</p>
This is awesome! You could probably add in a few small flowers if you take the hard plastic off it
<p>Thank you! I am sure you could use any kind of material <br>as long as it can bend to the balloon.</p>
Awesome! Though don't the leaves turn brown and brittle after a while? And how strong is the bowl, can you put something in it, or does it break at first touch?
<p>Thank you for the feedback. To answer your question they aren't real leaves. I chose to use fake <br>ones for the same reason of not knowing whether they would brown and become <br>fragile. The bowl is flimsy but strong. You can put things in it and it will <br>sit straight and maintain its form.</p>
<p>The leaves are fake.</p>
Ah, that explains =)
