    Step 2:

    A)    Cut 11" lengths of wire for as many leaves as you’d like to make.

    B)    Deco podge one side of a leaf. Tip: Work on a non-stick mat to more easily remove leaves after coating with deco podge.

    C)   Sandwich a wire between the deco-podged leaf and a matching leaf. Rub to secure the wire between the two paper leaves. Let dry.

    D)   Repeat this process to make as many leaves as you’d like.
