Visions of gold magnolia leaf wreaths throughout my home as well as additional workshops were twirling in my mind. My backyard included foraged magnolia branches. Having evaluated lots of “how-to” as well as additionally “do it on your own” I picked the standards utilizing mod podge.

The guidelines requested for utilizing mod podge on both sides of the magnolia leaf, permit one side entirely dry as well as later on do the different other. After doing a zillion leaves, as well as additionally acquiring the magnolia leaves stuck on the paper that was covering my dining-room table, I comprehended that possibly this was other than me. Oh… as well as additionally clearly my fingers were

glued with each various other as well as additionally Beau ( my rescue animal) as well as additionally I were a little ditzy maintaining that much adhesive in your house.

After the spray paint as well as the additional glue tool melted, I sprinkled throughout with a lacquer surface area that I had in the closet.

Not instead particular what to do with them yet I make particular I will absolutely find a location.
