Hang these festi-fall decorations on your mantle or from railings, cabinets, doorways, or windows. The leaves also look great scattered on around your Thanksgiving table.
If you're reading a crafty blog post (and you are), you probably already have the supplies you need for this project. I did, so this eco-friendly, super easy Thanksgiving decoration cost me a grand total of $0.00. Enough chatter, let's make some fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la foliage!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Leaf template (click here to download)
- Hole punch
- Painter's tape
- Pen/ Sharpie
- Spray adhesive
- Glitter (extra fine glitter is best)
*Why magazines? The glossy pages don't absorb the spray adhesive so the leaves won't curl. Plus, if you have an address, you have some magazines laying around that you can immediately recycle.
WHAT TO DO:
1. Print the leaf template and cut out.
2. Place leaf stencil onto magazine page, trace, and cut out. Make about 16.
3. Punch a hole in each of your leaves.
4. Cut 16 pieces of thread between 3-6" long. Tie thread through the holes.
5. Spread glitter out on plate. Hold the thread and spray adhesive one side of leaf. Put the leaf sticky-side-down into the glitter, then repeat for back side.
6. Hang leaves with painter's tape. To keep the leaves fresh for next year, put wax paper between the leaves when storing.
