Continue until you’ve glued all the leaves inside the bowl. If they don’t stick down straight away, don’t worry, just place them where you’d like them to go.

To help the leaves stick and take the shape of the bowl, use a balloon blown up to the size of the bowl and tape down. Leave for an hour, then remove the balloon so your leaf bowl can air dry. Leave over night. If there are bits of glue that still need to dry, use a hair dryer.

Step 5:

Once the bowl is completely dry, carefully peel away the leaves from the bowl using a knife.
