Don’t those golden leaves look great?
A dear friend made them from (admittedly mustard ;-)) tubes and allowed me to show here how to make them.
Many thanks again!
That’s what you do:
You need a (clean and empty! ;-)) tube with golden internal coating, scissors and a wooden stick, e.g. a kebab skewer.
I folded up the tube which was cut open on three sides and cut out two equal leaves.
First I flattened the leaves slightly and then I put the kebab skewer in and pressed them lightly until the midrib of the leaf begun to show.
Then I scratched the leaf ribs with the back of my kebab skewer from the backside of every leaf.
Afterwards I reduced one leaf by cutting away an edge of about 3 mm.
I put both leaves on top of one another and scratched the outline of the smaller leaf slightly with the tip of my kebab skewer into the larger leaf.
Then I cut the edge of the larger leaf from the rim to the scratched line of the smaller leaf about every 5 mm.
I put both leaves on top of one another with the golden sites outwards and folded back the sections.
At the end I stuck the kebab skewer between the leaves.
You can stuck it in also before folding back the sections, just as you like it.
My friend additionally glued on the kebab skewer but we both don’t know if this is necessary ;-))
Have much fun decorating your flower boxes and garden flower beds :)
