You’ll need a bag of artificial leaves, which we bought from the
Dollar Tree, but any craft store should carry them. Next use a
paintbrush to apply Elmer’s glue to each leaf and then sprinkle glitter
over the leaf. Let the glue set and then shake off the excess glitter.
Next punch a hole at the top of each leaf and attach a ribbon that you can tie to a large ribbon strand.
leaves are so shimmery and will add a little sparkle to your home for
the upcoming months. It would also be a great project to do with kiddos,
a little glitter ending up on their faces is always a good thing 🙂
