Fall Leaf Arrangement Tutorial

This Fall Leaf Arrangement Tutorial just maybe what you need to get you geared up for cooler weather!

CLICK "READ MORE" BELOW TO SEE ALL OF THE PICTURES



What you will need:
1 vase
2-4 Silk Leaf bushes (Depends on how big 
of an arrangement you want to make)
floral wire cutter
little berries for the bottom of vase
hand full of sticks
(I got my sticks from the backyard)
glue gun and glue sticks
(optional-fuzzies from Pampas Grass)
Pull the leaves off of the leaf bushes.

Cut the wires on the berries but leave all of them in tact.  There is no need to cut each of them individually.

Put berries in the bottom of the vase.

You should have a pile of leaves to work with.

Begin by hot gluing one leaf at a time on the sticks

Here's a couple of leaves that have been glued on a stick

To make it easier, I laid the sticks on the table while I finished gluing all the leaves.

I also went in my back yard and cut some of those long fuzzies from my Pampas Grass to use as a filler.  You may want to pick up some other type of filler when you purchase the silk leaf bushes.

Here's a couple of shots of the finished arrangement.
