I’m just not ready to let go of the beautiful leaves! A couple weeks ago we posted about Nicole Duke’s Easy and Free DIY Fall Leaf Roses. And this weekend I found another EASY and inexpensive DIY project for those leaves all over the ground that can accent your home and make a great fall or Thanksgiving decoration. I picture them shimmering around a room during a late evening party.
Extremely easy, cheap to make, and a way to preserve the leaves…
Here’s what we did:
You will need:
Leaves (artificial or real)
Paint leaves with glue.
Sprinkle glitter over the leaf.
Let completely dry.
Use a hole punch to make a hole in the leaf.
String ribbon through hole.
Take a long piece of ribbon and tie ribbons with leaves to ends of the longer piece to create garland.
OR tie individual strings of leaves (without the garland piece of ribbon) anywhere in the house.
This was a lot of fun to make and they will last for months! Use a variety of glitter colors, even the non traditional colors to make it extra jazzy.
