When my mom showed up with tons of fall leaf garlands from the craft store I was not necessarily very excited about what I was going to do with all of these leaves. She had gotten them for 70% off and she figured I could come up with a unique craft. Well, here was my take on something unique...a couple of styrofoam cones and pearl pins and I got a couple of great fall leaves topiaries. These turned out so pretty in person but I am not convinced that they photographed as well so please take my word for it.
A funny tidbit to share....my eight year old son was watching me make these and he said "Mom, you seriously have a crafting problem!" That made me chuckle because he is so right...it's an addiction!
You will need
Fall Leaves (these were artificial leaves)
• Gather your supplies
• Start pinning the leaves into the styrofoam--there was no pattern here it was just to make it look good
• Continue covering the entire cone with leaves. I found that I liked my smaller one better because it was wider at the bottom. I think that happened because I stuffed so many extra leaves at the bottom
Pretty fall colors!
