Place one leaf down on your work surface and add a blob of glue. Spread the glue out to the edges with your fingers or the side of a craft stick. Place the second leaf on top of the glue. Press the layers together. The glue may ooze out the edges. Just wipe it off with a damp paper towel. Now, wrinkle up the layered leaf. This will give it some texture.
Curve the edges of the leaf upward to create a bowl in the middle of the leaf. You may have to do this more than once to get the edges to stay in place. You'll be able to play with the shape for awhile as the glue dries. To help, you can lay the leaf over a bowl.
Now let the leaf bowl dry. Once it is dry, you can paint it in colors of your choice using a brush or small piece of sponge. Then, you can use it to hold some fall items like nuts or other small items.
