Picking sparkling maple leafs this weekend led to a crafternoon where mom and I made a bouqette of maple roses each. It was a quick and fun little project just before dinner. We got the tutorial third hand when in a craft class but the information came from a swedish tutorial showing (in lots of pictures) how to make maple leaf roses!
And some more photos…
Smilla says: They don’t smell all that great, but they’re very pretty. Here is mom’s bouquette on the dinner table:
What a colour infusion, much needed since it’s been raining for three days since this sunshine. Sometimes an unexpected craft oportunity, captured in the moment, will give you lots of joy.
Haha oh my gosh I like this a lot
Mycket snyggt! Jag har gjort ytterligare två buketter sedan jag bloggade om dem, en som gåbortspresent till en kompis och en som jag satte i personalrummet på jobbet. Det är ett så bra pyssel, gratis material, snabbt, enkelt och blir så oerhört fint. Tacksamt jobb liksom. :)
What an awesome idea, Hanna. These are so beautiful, too! Sometimes a great idea doesn’t really look great at the end, but I would love to make some of these and give them away, so everyone has leaf roses.
So beautiful! I can’t wait to try this.
PS – I found these instructions in English – in case anyone needs them! http://www.designsponge.com/2011/10/diy-project-autumn-leaf-bouquet.html
they’re so bright and beautiful!!
It is amazing, I will try it. The leaves shouldn´t be too dry I think.
Thank you for sharing! :)
Wow, these are so neat! I can’t believe you made these out of maple leaves. Very clever!
What an awesome and stunning idea. Beautiful!
Fantastic. For some reason I missed you for a while, now I have corrected my feed and you are back! Yeah….xox
Oh soooo precious!
Such a delightful craft… perfect for Fall. :]
Oh Hannah these are absolutely beautiful. So clever!
