From Autumn Leaf to Rose

From Leaf to Rose.

I made this Rose from some Maple leaves I picked up the other day. 

The middle leaf was folded inward and wound around itself to form the centre bud.  I then added extra leaves getting larger and larger as I added them around the centre bud. They were stuck down with a Glue Gun and edged with Starlight Paint from Imagination Crafts.

Eventually they will perish but I cannot wait for all the Autumn colours to arrive to make more. 

They would look lovely on a wreath for Christmas so I may spray them with Acrylic varnish to seal them in the hope that they last longer.
