How to make a bowl with fall leaves

When it comes to fall crafts, life without Modge Podge seems rather boring. For those unfamiliar with Modge Podge, this glue and sealer combination assists with all sorts of decoupage projects. For this particular craft, use an ordinary mixing bowl, some Modge Podge, plastic wrap and a pile of faux leaves to create a soft, pliable leaf bowl.
When selecting artificial leaves for this project, consider the size of the leaves. The bowl will require fewer large leaves to cover it; an extra package of smaller leaves may be required to cover the entire bowl. Choose brighter colors to kick off the season, or use darker-colored leaves to blend in with home decor.

Instructions
1. Turn the mixing bowl upside-down.
2. Wrap the mixing bowl in clear plastic wrap; tuck any excess plastic wrap inside the bowl.
3. Dip the paintbrush into Modge Podge, then brush the glue on the back of a leaf. Stick the leaf on the bowl.
4. Continue to glue and set leaves on the bowl, swiping the paintbrush across the top of leaves to seal them together. Go heavy on the Modge Podge to secure leaves -- especially on the bottom of the bowl.
5. Tilt and turn leaves to make a natural display; leaves should not look uniform in appearance. Allow the Modge Podge to dry.
6. Peel the plastic from the mixing bowl, then peel the plastic wrap away from the leaves.
7. Choose a location for the fall leaf bowl, then store lightweight items in it.
