Jacob, Winston and I have lived in our new house for a little less than a year now, and I have to admit I’ve learned a lot about myself in this short amount of time. I never imagined in a million years that I’d love to paint walls or envision the décor of a newly renovated room. One thing I’ve discovered is how adamantly I love DIY projects. Who needs fancy or expensive things when you can simply create original pieces on your own. I guess I’m not entirely surprised considering I used to love scrapbooking (and still do if I ever put aside the time). Whenever I want a little DIY project to work on, I browse Pinterest in the hopes of finding a new idea. And that’s where I got the vision to make leaf bowls. I pinned this long before I moved out of my parent’s house, when the thought of living in my own place with Jacob was merely a possibility. Since I still have some time before the winter season is upon us, I thought this would be a fun, fall DIY project to accomplish. There was definitely some trial and error since the directions aren’t that in-depth but in the end I can share the dos and don’ts I learned for all you little do-it-yourselfers out there.
