Glittered Fall LeafWreath!



  Do you remember these fancy pumpkins that Martha Stewart made years ago?

These pumpkins were my first glimpse into what beauty ultrafine glitter can bring to a project and these were made from Art Glitter’s ultrafine glitter!  Their glitter is also used on TLC’s Craft Wars.  How cool!

Glittered Fall Leaf Wreath

I really needed a new Fall wreath and when I saw all of their glitter colors, I knew I wanted to glitter some leaves!  The hardest part about this wreath was picking the colors…. I ended up choosing Country Red, White Gold, Twig, and Copper Harbor.

I picked up an inexpensive artificial leaf garland and simply cut the leaves off of the stem.  I used a garland instead of a bag of leaves, because they were varied in size.  To apply the glitter, I brushed on the Art Glitter glue to the top of the leaf and then gently shook the glitter with a spoon until the entire front was covered.

I was blown away by the beauty of the colors and how much they sparkled!  I have never used glitter that was this nice before.  The pictures truly do not do it justice!!

To put together the wreath I covered a straw wreath form in burlap ribbon and wired it to a wispy grapevine wreath.  I actually used the brown wired branch that held the garland together! Way to repurpose, right?

To attach the leaves to the straw wreath, I simply pinned them on with small silver straight pins.  By using the pins instead of the glue I can use the leaves for something else if I want to!  Finally, I attached a chocolate brown burlap bow and she was done!  So pretty!
