How to make your leaf bowl:
Step 1: Blow up your balloon.
Inflate the balloon and tie it closed. Place the balloon into a bowl, then gather a handful of artificial leaves in mixed fall colors.
Step 2: Glue on the leaves.
Use your paint brush to cover a leaf-sized spot on the balloon with Mod Podge and press a fabric leaf onto the spot. Cover the leaf with more Mod Podge and repeat with the remaining leaves. Continue until you've made a bowl shape out of your leaves.
Step 3: Cover the leaves with Mod Podge.
Paint a thick coat of Mod Podge over the leaves.
Step 4: Let it dry.
When the leaf bowl is the size you like, let it dry overnight.
Step 5: Pop the balloon!
When fully dry, pop the balloon and carefully peel it out of the bowl. Enjoy your brand new leaf bowl!
