DIY Faux Leaf Bowl and Placemat

Posted by

When I started making the placemats I didn’t think it would really work and I totally guessed through the entire process, but much to my surprise it did work and I loved the result. When I was successful at making a flat placemat, I tried my hand at a faux leaf bowl. I used an oval bowl as a mold and though touch and go, it worked. I think when you are making something and it all comes together there is a moment when you go to a happy place and give yourself a pat on the back because you are happy with the result.

Leaf Bowl

Supplies:

  • One bowl with the shape you want;
  • Medium or Heavy Gel Gloss artist grade (This can be found at any craft store. I use Golden or Liquidtex. You can also use Mod Podge);
  • Flat Fall craft leaves (I found mine at the dollar store) It is important they aren’t from a garland and they are flat;
  • Soft medium size artist brush (see picture);
  • Butter knife which you will use to carefully separate the leaf bowl from the mold bowl. It helps if when you are applying the mod podge or Medium gel gloss that you only apply it on the top of the leaves.
