Load up the glue and let dry. Its important that the leaves are completely dry before popping the balloon. If you pop before the leaves are dry, then the bowl will collapse.

Got a question about this project?

    I did this leaf bowl last year and it is not as easy as it looks make sure that you apply enough glue and the bottom of the bowl just happens

    When complete add a few pine cones for display

    I made one a couple years ago.....use enough of decoupage or a glue-water mix. It looks so pretty sitting out at Thanksgiving with a glass bowl with water and a floating candle and pinecone around the bowl.

      What a great idea. Do you think you would get a better bowl fit if you covered bottom of desired bowl with plastic wrap and used THAT as the bowl form??

    worth a try Sharon, but not sure though if leaves would stick too much to the plastic.
