Metal Leaf Wreath

CREATING THE ATMOSPHER OF CHRISTMAS

What you will need:

  • X-Press It Metal Leaf

  • X-Press It Gold Size

  • X-Press It Paint Brush

  • X-Press It Clear Glue Gel

  • Fabric Leaves

  • Card Stock

  • Scissors

Step 1: Using a clean paint brush, apply a thin layer of X-Press It Gold Size on the areas you want to cover with the Metal Leaf. Allow the Gold Size to dry for 15 minutes or until it becomes tacky.

Step 2: Delicately place X-Press It Metal Leaf onto the area where you have applied the Gold Size. (You can use tweezers or your fingers to do this). Once covered with Metal Leaf, use a clean, soft brush to dust off the excess leaf very delicately. 

Step 3: On your card stock, draw a large circle with a smaller circle inside. Cut out around the large circle. Next cut out the inner smaller circle. 

Step 4: Using your X-Press It Clear Gel Glue, apply glue the centre of your circle.

Step 5: Apply your leaves to the circle. Continue applying leaves until you completely have covered up all the card. 

Step 6: Your metal leaf wreath is now complete. This can be used as a table decoration or you can hang it to a wall or door.
