Start by making a puddle of hot glue- about the size of a dime. Do this on the pot holder! The glue won't stick to it so you can peel it off later.

Step 3: Placing the Leaf

Is hot glue feviqik? That glue which dries in record time?

Please just say yes or no?

Hi I'm from India and I have never heard of hot glue so can you do it another way ?

I'm always looking out for ideas for making my tree and plant ID markers for use outside. Am I crazy to think I could make these on a much larger scale, such as fist-sized? Yours came out beautifully.

That sounds like a great idea! But instead of hot glue, I would use epoxy. and maybe use some type of mold.
