This glitter leaf DIY project has been making the rounds on Pinterest, and it was just too sparkly not to give it a try. This tutorial uses fake leaves from the Dollar Tree, but that just didn’t feel right to my roommate and me, so we made our own version using real leaves.
How to make glitter leaves:
Step 1: Gather leaves. Try to get leaves that aren’t too crispy or too fresh. A leaf that has just fallen to the ground works best.
Step 2: Microwave your leaves. The problem with using real leaves instead of fake ones, is that as leaves dry up they also curl. To prevent this, we dried our leaves out in the microwave. To do so, you’ll need a flat, microwave-safe surface that you can place on top of your leaves when you microwave them so they come out flat. Before you microwave your leaf, wrap it in a paper towel, then place the flat heavy object on top of it and cook the leaf in 30 second intervals until it feels dry.
Step 3: Coat the leaves in Mod Podge.
Step 4: Pour glitter over the leaf.
Step 5: Shake off excess glitter, and let your creation dry.
Step 6: Punch holes in your leaves, and hang them for display.
