LOL! When I said that I glued the wire to the leaves, I meant that I did it with Royal icing...not real glue. ha ha
Sorry. So, I did the same way as you, but the royal icing wouldn't hold it at first, so it seemed like I had to "gop" it on in order for it to be strong enought to stick to the leaves. I guess my leaves were too thick. But that was the first time I had ever done anything like that, so, each time, I learn what NOT to do(thick leaves). I was happy with the royal glue method, just not the amount I had to use. LOL THANK YOU gilpnh!!!
Thanks peg! I will have to try that way too! I think we all find ways to work for us....isn't that weird? How there are so many different ways to achieve the same effect? LOL
Thank you both for your tips!
