Glittered Fall Leaf Wreath

 

Don’t tell the hubs, but I am in LOVE…

 with Art Glitter!  

Bonnie and I have teamed up with the fabulous glitter supplier, Art Glitter, for some gorgeous holiday projects!  Today we are showing off our… 

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!
