Plaster of Paris Fall Leaves Nature Wreath

Today is a beautiful, unexpected gift of sunshine kind of day here in New York and has inspired me to create my Plaster of Paris Leaves Nature Wreath.    
Plaster of Paris leaves start with silk leaves and Plaster of Paris mixed to a loose pudding consistency. I did a 2 to 1 ratio with a smidge more than one on the water.
Dip the leaf and set it to dry on a sheet of wax paper.  You may need to repeat the dipping process to coat evenly.  Allow to completely dry.  Mine set up for 48 hours.
Next I glued the Plaster of Paris leaves and some small pine cones to a rustic vine wreath.

Added some dried baby's breath and cattails.
My Plaster of Paris Fall Leaves Nature Wreath is ready to greet.

Happy Fall.
