Hey there. Here is a fun project that I did for my Fall tablescape. It was a lot of fun and I created a lot of plaster leaves for very little cost.

DO NOT do what I did. I come from a "more is better" world - so to save time, I mixed up a double batch. Terrible idea...the plaster dries very quickly and in no time flat this mixture was no longer usable. This is what it looked like.
