What settings should be adjusted in order to make an photo blur using a Canon EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR camera?

I am using a 18 - 55 MM lens. I want to make a certain object (leaf object) blur rather than the background. What must I adjust on my camera to accomplish this?

joukiejouk  set your focus (aperture)  depth of field,
this determines  the the subject clarity and the objects in front, the distance from the camera and the subject in the back.
Deactivating your camera's autofocus system is one method to give you full control, zoom in and out to see the front blur.

I am using Photoshop CC 2015 for editing photos. How would I create these glowing effects in the app? What is this effect called? I'd like to see if there is a video about it in youtube.
