Make a Fall Fun Bowl

By Kiahni Christmas

 

Fall time is here and this DIY is a fun way to get into the fall spirit. This fall bowl is an easy way to bring color into your dining room. It can be used as a centerpiece, and as a storage tray. It is an easy way to get into the fall season. Here are the basic things you need to know about how to make this fall craft.

 

Materials:

  • Leaf garland (can get at local craft store)
  • Mod Podge (preferably the matte finish)
  • Foam brushes
  • Assorted balloons (red, orange, and yellow)
  • Scissors
  • A medium to large-sized mixing bowl

Steps:

  • Begin by snipping the leaves off the strand of garland, and cutting the entire steam (with veins) off the faux leaves; this will help the leaves mold the shape of a balloon. (Leave about 1/8” at the base)
  • Following up, fill the balloon up to size.
  • Once you finish gathering the leaves, and filing up the balloon; use the mod podge and gently apply a thin layer the top of the balloon – starting from the middle and working your way outwards.
  • After the balloon is covered in the glue, lay leafs throughput the balloon and soothe with your fingers or a foam brush, when it’s all stuck in place – put a thin layer over all of the leaves.
  • Repeat previous step, covering any empty spaces with smaller leaves
  • When you reach about a quarter of the way down the balloon, add one or two leaves to the bottom of the bowl for extra weight and support. Allow to dry at least an hour
  • After it is all finished, carefully pop the balloon with a pin towards the tied end and slowly let the air out.
