This sweet little DIY fall leaf bowl will be perfect to add to your fall décor this season. It’s super easy to make (I know I say that about all of my crafts, but I promise it’s true), and I love that you can customize it to create it in any size that you want. I started out by making a small leaf bowl, but I have plans on making a larger one for my coffee table.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own fall leaf bowl: A bowl to use as your mold (any size you want), cooking spray, plastic wrap, silk fall leaves, Mod Podge, and a sponge brush.
Start by spraying the bottom of your bowl with cooking spray. Then, fully wrap the bottom of the bowl with the plastic wrap.
Apply Mod Podge to the bottom of the bowl and begin adding your leaves, brushing on the Mod Podge as you go. Continue until your bowl is covered with leaves, and add a layer of Mod Podge to the top of all of the leaves. Let sit to dry overnight, or use a hair dryer to speed up the drying process.
I wanted my bowl to be a shallow candy dish, so I didn’t go all the way up with my leaves. Cover more or less of the bowl depending on the look you want.
Once the Mod Podge has dried completely, remove the plastic wrap from the bowl, and then remove the leaves from the plastic wrap.
That’s it! Now you have a cute leaf bowl perfect for fall candy, acorns, or adding to your Thanksgiving table.
Happy fall crafting, DIY’ers!
