Autumn Leaves Centerpiece Decoration

This craft was very fun to make and it didn't take that long either! I started thinking about what my base was going to be for this decoration. At the time I didn't think about a centerpiece craft until I saw my unfinished paper mache bowl that just made me very excited to use it since it has been taking up space in my craft area for a long time. Also, Click Here to see my Youtube video on this project. So here is what the finished product looks like:

 The picture below shows the materials that I used in the project, I will list them below that picture.
The materials I used are the following:
Paper Mache bowl (you don't have to use paper mache you can just buy a bowl if you want)
Liquitex Basics Acrylic Paint (color: Titanium White)
Scotch Quick - Drying Tacky Glue
Martha Stewart Glitters colors:
Smokey Quartz
Fire Opal
Sponge tool (for sponging the paint on the bowl)
Gold Acrylic Paint
Brown Acrylic Paint
Fake Autumn Leaves
Rectangular Foam piece to fit in your bowl
The rectangular foam piece that fits in your bowl is the base for poking your fake leaves into so that they stay securely in the bowl without using any glue. The glitter I used on the outside of the bowl and on some of the leaves. The glue that I used for the glitters is Scotch Quick - Drying Tacky Glue.

I hope you enjoyed this craft and I will post more of my creations soon!
