To make large wreath, glue leaves in rotation onto grapevine form.
For mini wreaths, glue leaves in rotation onto metal hoop.
For painted leaves, brush shades of paint onto paper. Let dry before shaping and folding. Tip: For our painted leaves, we cut shapes from craft paper and added the color with paint. Gold or other metallic colors add a beautiful sheen and texture to the finished look.
