Second, when I saw it, it was originally done with fall-colored yarns which was very pretty and probably more sturdy than mine. All I had was an orange colored ball of crochet thread. I still think they look cool.
|I wanted to make sure it worked, so there's a lot of dried glue left on the leaves!|
We learned our lesson, however, and I didn't water the glue down as much and we used longer pieces of thread.
You'll need glue, leaf printout, waked paper and yarn/thread.
You place waxed paper over your leave printout. I got my leave printout HERE.
Thoroughly soak your thread/yarn in the slightly watered down glue and then place on the waxed paper in the leave shapes anyway you want.
Now, I will admit that because of the failure we had previously with the planets, I made sure there was plenty of glue. That became a failure somewhat just because of dried glue left between the strands of the thread after they dried.
We waited until the next day and gently peeled them off the waxed paper.
|Don't you love my yellow nail polish?|
I think the leaves look pretty cool. You could use this method to make many different items. I'm thinking of trying a turkey! Keep your eyes open!
