Mix the plaster (according to the directions on the box) in the disposable container. Using the stem on the leaf as a handle, coat both sides of the leaf with the paint brush. You have to work pretty quick, this stuff starts setting pretty fast. Use the wax paper to lay the wet leaf on. The wax paper makes it super simple to get up too, when they are dry. After they are dry, measure out 2 yards of jute twine. Find the center and tie a leaf on, work your way out from there...I used 9 all together. I put a little spot of glue on the knots, just so they won't slip off.
I've been plastering so many leafs, I created 2 additional garlands that are for sale in my Etsy Shop. They really are beautiful in real life, the pictures don't so them justice!
I'll be seeing what else I can plaster too!!
