Fall Leaf Art Project Tutorial
DIY Fall Leaf Art Project Materials:
- semi-dry leaves
- tree twigs
- Mod Podge
- glitter glue
- glue gun
- glue stick
- foam board of your color choice (or canvas or poster board)
How To Make A DIY Fall Decor Leaf Art Project For Your Wall:
1- Arrange your materials according to your desired design. Re-arrange until you get your final look.
2- Cut twigs off that are in the way of you being able to glue your twig down flat onto your foam board.
3- Use the glue gun to glue down the tree branch and leaves. Cut off unwanted stems.
4- Seal each leaf with the regular mod podge glue. You can use a watercolor brush to apply the glue. The sealer will preserve the leaves and will make it lasts longer.
5- After you’re done with the leaves, continue to brush the mod podge on with the entire branch.
6- Add a little oomph to your leaves by applying mod podge glitter.
7- Let your project dry. Normally it takes 15- 20 mins but it depends on how thick you applied your sealer.
8- You can stencil the date on the side or a fun saying if you like.
9- Once dry, you can hang your homemade leaf wall art wherever you like!
