Fall Leaf Bowl

Fall Leaf Bowl

A few week ago, I posted a tutorial for my friends at Made From Pinterest. I took on a project I had seen many times over on Pinterest–a fall leaf bowl held together by hardened glue. Sounded challenging.


Turns out, it was. Every single pin had a different method for getting great results. And then I’d read through the comments of people who had actually made the projects and —WHOA! Lots of Pinterest fails going on. So while I’d like to say this project was the result of one pin in particular, in this case, it took a village. But then my bowl came out a-ok. Hands in the air for crowd-sourcing!


Leaf-Bowl-DIY-step-2The abridged version of the tutorial:

  • Wrap a large bowl in plastic wrap and turn it upside down on your work surface
  • Iron fabric leaves from the Dollar Store so they’ll stay flat
  • Coat the bowl and the leaves in fabric stiffener and apply to the bowl in layers until the bowl is completely covered
  • Let dry, then peel off bowl / plastic wrap.

The bowl is very lightweight. It will be able to hold a few pumpkins or candy as long as it’s not being carried around. For more details on how to make a fall leaf bowl of your own, click over to Made From Pinterest!
