I like walking on the Internet, I learned there useful things, such as: how to grow vegetables, how to knit a hat, how to make compost, which fertilizers are useful, how to make fast the dough and so on. Once I learned how to make flowers using dry maple leaves and I especially loved the maple leaf roses for an autumn wreath.
Last weeks colored maple leaves were falling down the ground, all the paths in my garden are covered with them. I picked the most beautiful red green yellow leaves, and began to make a rose.
I want to tell you how I did it. I folded in half and tightly rolled first maple leaf. The second leaf also has to be folded in half and rolled around the first leaf. So I continued to fold and roll more leaves.
I did 10 maple leaves to have a big enough rose. I forgot to say that each rolled leaf should be secured with a thread and then you need to cut shorter the leaf stems.
I've put the first rose in a cup and started to make the second one because it was a lot of maple leaves on the table. The second rose got a bit redder than the first one. I decided that I would have a big autumn wreath and I needed more roses therefore I've made the third rose.
Then I took a brush and a bit of vegetable oil and painted my maple leaf roses to longer store them. I think to use some dry leaves, dried rowan berries, sedum and my roses making a wreath.
Have you ever made autumn wreath with dry leaves, berries and maple leaf roses? What more could be added to a wreath?
I'm sure one can try similar leaves if there are no maple leaves.
