• Oh wow,these are beautiful, totally inspiring, thanks for sharing :)

  • Very cool. You always have the BEST finds!

  • Do you have any idea what kind of leaves these are?

  • I noticed that someone asked her if they were oleander leaves. I didn’t see a comment back though. Thanks for your reply!

    • Oleander leaves are poisonous, can cause a skin break out. So I don’t think they are oleander leaves, which are generally shorter than these. These are eucalyptus leaves. Different species are different sizes.

  • i simply adore these…how amazingly beautiful

  • The leaves are eucalyptus leaves. No, not the round ones you buy that have a fragrance. These are from a desert eucalyptus, commonly found in dry areas of Australia, South America and the Sonoran and Mojave desert in Arizona and California.

  • Thanks so much QuinnCreative! They are beautiful!

  • I just love your painted leaves! What did you do with them? I am also wondering how they have held up over time. I have some ideas perking in my brain….but I don’t know if the painted leaves will be ok over time, or if I should perhaps dip them in resin. Thanks.

  • Hey there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Reading this post reminds me of my previous
    room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to
    him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

  • I tried this and just loved the results in a fall centerpiece. I found some dried thick long oak leaves and cut along the center spine in the shape of a feather. The results are varying thicknesses and curves. I just love this craft.
