Peach State says: Crafty Little Leaf!


So I was looking through a magazine the other day I saw this cute idea…

Crafty Little Leaf!

Here is the concept…

Collect some wonderful and colorful leaves ( or buy a bag of silk Fall leaves)


And a balloon ( blown up)


And some Modge Podge or a water glue mixture.

Apply the glue product to the leaves and place on the the large top of the balloon. Hint place the balloon in a large dish to hold the balloon stable.!


Arrange and place the leaves in an overlapping pattern around the balloon and when finished let dry,
Once dry, pop the balloon and remove it from the the Leaf Bowl.

The balloon will look similar to this…and the Leaf Bowl will look like this…

It was fun and I think I will do this again…I may even try the same type of project with some snowflakes foe Christmas.

Time for some NFL football!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.

  1. Well, this is a fun idea – good way to use all those leaves clogging my driveway. ๐Ÿ˜†
    I hope my glue isn’t dried up, though. I forgot I had it, and haven’t had it out for MONTHS!
