And timely too. I was looking for leaf crafts just this week. Coincidentally, 'leafed' (har har) thru a book of ModPodge crafts at the library a well. It looks like excellent stuff.
Thanks for the detailed instructions and pics. I know that is labor intensive right there!

It wasn't that bad...it took about an hour to cover both globes. I didn't wear gloves so I was peeling Mod Podge off my fingers the rest of the day though!

OK Here we go...I found some silk leaves in a bowl of little gourds I had painted...pulled the "veins" off, washed the leaves to make them more pliable, took a "tourist candle" that I found, and I'm ready.

If I don't have enough leaves I think I have some more in the shed.

(Mel...aren't you proud of me? all this in one day! LOL) Jo
