Usually, it’s best to start with the end in mind, but that doesn’t apply to freeform crochet. In freeform, you never really know what you’re going to end up with. I admit, a cleaner spaced twisted stitch would improve the result, but it’s still a leaf 😉
I think you could keep going with this. Build a stem of leaves, pierce them with wire and create a bouquet that doesn’t require watering.
