Glitter Leaf DIY Ornament
I actually made these leaves before Thanksgiving to decorate for Fall, then added red bows to them, to use as Christmas ornaments. Double duty decor' is always a time and money saver. Here is what you will need:
Aluminum Screening Material (found at hardware store)
Gold Spray Paint (or what ever color you prefer)
Gold Glitter (or what ever color you prefer)
Using a real leaf or plastic leaf as a pattern, cut out your flexible thin aluminum screening. Spray paint both sides, allowing time to dry in between. Outline and add veining designs to leaf with glue, then sprinkle with glitter, and let dry. You can either buy bows from the craft department, or holiday section of Walmart, or make your own with ribbon. I had some on hand I had bought, so I used those. I attached them to the leaves with fishing line in the back. Then I added a loop with fishing line to hang them on our tree.
