Instructions

Step 1

Outlining_Leaf_Pattern

Download our leaf patterns and cut out the leaf shape. Trace the outline of a leaf onto vinyl flashing using a permanent marker.

Step 2

Marker_Leaf_Pattern

Draw vein lines on the flashing. To create a crease down the middle of the leaf, place a ruler along the center vein and bend the flashing upward.

Step 3

Spray_Paint_Leaf_Pattern

Add more dimension and realism by using the short end of the ruler to crease the remaining vein lines and curl the edges. Spray paint a base color and let dry.

Step 4

Spray_Paint_Leaf

Spray a second color over portions of the leaf to mimic natural shade variations. Let dry. Add a third color, if desired. While the leaf dries, assemble the frame.

Step 5

Frame_Drill

Cut the sides of the frame to desired length from 1"x3" pine, miter corners, and paint. Join pieces with glues and braces. Cut back panel to size from OSB and glue to frame.

Step 6

Leaf_Glue_Gun

Mount leaf in the frame. Cut a 2" length of poplar dowel, and use a glue gun to attach one end to the back of the leaf. Glue the other end of the dowel to the back panel.

Step 7

DESCRIPTION
