diy paper leaves






 first take the wire and cut 1 long piece for the centre of the leaf, then cut another piece and bend in a v shape.
take the brown packing paper and cut a rectangle piece, then place the wire on to it and brush glue on to it and fold it over and rub the paper down,
then cut out in to a
leaf shape.

 you could use them as a leave bunting, or as napkin rings, i made both
for the napkin rings i used twine, and tied it around the napkin, then slid the leaves in and added gold spray painted feathers, and guinea fowl feathers. great for a fall table setting
