Gold acrylic paint
Round picture frame
Dry bay leaves of increasing size (I used 16 in total--8 pairs of similarly sized leaves. Obviously the bigger the frame, the more leaves you will need)
Step 1: Paint the bay leaves gold. I did two coats per side.
Step 2: If your frame is varnished you may need to sand it a bit first. Then give it a couple coats of gold acrylic.
Step 3: Starting with the largest size, glue the pairs of leaves with a slight overlap on opposite sides of the frame to create the laurel crown shape.
Step 4: Continue gluing the leaves all the way around the frame.
