And this is how it's done:
Fix sheets with napkin glue
After you've collected colorful autumn leaves for your autumn cup, you're ready for the crafting fun. I used fresh leaves for this autumn DIY. Dried leaves are less suitable because they break quickly. The best are flat leaves. If the leaves are too vaulted, you can squeeze them between heavy books for a few hours. Thus, the leaves are beautifully smooth and can then stick better. Depending on how big your leaf cup should be, you need a correspondingly large bowl. This can be made of glass, plastic or porcelain. First, you dress the bowl with cling film. Now you give with a brush napkin glue on the bottom of the sheet. Then you stick the sheet on the dish lined with cling film. Then you apply again napkin glue on the glued sheet. Then smooth the sheet with the brush from the inside out.
Begins by sticking the leaves to the bottom of the shell. Here I have used rather larger leaves. Then you stick the remaining leaves around the bowl. Make sure that the leaves overlap well. If you discover individual gaps, they can be covered with more leaves at the end. Once you've glued all the leaves, put your autumn peel on the side to dry.
Then after about 48 hours, you can peel the leaves from the bowl and then remove the cling film. To do this, carefully remove the foil from the leaves piece by piece with your fingers. This step requires a little patience and tact, so that the leaves do not break. Once you have removed the foil, the autumn peel must dry again for about 12 hours. After the shell is completely dry, you seal it with a clear coat. The clearcoat protects against moisture and dirt. It also gives the leaves more stability. Incidentally, you can use ordinary hair spray instead of clear coat. After more than an hour of drying, our autumn cup is ready to be filled.
Decorate autumn cup
Depending on your wishes, you can now fill your autumn bowl with a variety of accessories. Since I had collected so many autumn leaves, two shells were created. The slightly smaller bowl I lined with bright orange oak leaves. The larger bowl with the golden mushroom looks almost noble and elegant. A magical deco accessory that adds a golden autumn vibe to our home.
