Step 2: Fold the Leaves in Half
Take each leaf you've cut out and fold it in half. This will give your garland a more realistic and three-dimensional look. Plus, it adds a touch of elegance and realism to the leaves!
Step 3: Glue the Leaves
Now it's time to bring those leaves to life! Apply some hot glue at the base of each leaf and press it together to hold the folded position as shown below on the leaves on the left. This also adds another layer of depth to the leaves.
Step 4: Attach the Leaves to the Grapevine Wire
Grab your grapevine wire and start attaching the leaves! Apply some hot glue to the back of each leaf's stem and wrap it around the grapevine wire. This will secure the leaves and create a beautiful garland that you can hang anywhere!
The silicone finger protectors came in super handy for this step to prevent finger burns with the hot glue!
Step 5: Add Dimension
To add fullness and depth to your garland, alternate between folded leaves and flat leaves. This will give your garland a sense of depth and dimension. It's like creating a mini forest that's ready to be displayed!
Step 6: Hang and Enjoy
Now that your book page leaf garland is complete, it's time to find the perfect spot to hang it. Whether it's in your living room, bedroom, or even outdoors, this garland will add a touch of whimsy and creativity to any space. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty of your handmade masterpiece!
