Autumn is my favorite season, so I decided to make these cute heart-leaf vines that I previously posted here.
The original tutorial didn’t include thorough instructions, just pictures. My version is a little different and requires some extra steps, so hopefully these tips will help anybody else who wants to DIY these adorable vines as well.
I collected the prettiest fallen leaves and used a heart punch to cut out the shapes. To preserve the colors, I painted some Mod Podge onto each side of every heart. This should prevent the leaves from deteriorating.
At my schools art co-op, I found some wires covered with green thread that were perfect for this project!
I bent the wires into the desired curved shape and hot-glued the leaves along the wire, alternating the position of each one.
I also glued another leaf to the other side of the wire so they can be seen from the outside of the window as well.
Using a standard paper heart punch and some twine, finally put those fallen leaves to good use. I wonder if there is some sort of coating or preservative that can be used on the hearts to keep them from deteriorating?
