Create this stunning Glitter Dipped Leaf Garland by adding some sparkle to some dollar store garland!
I love leaf garland but sometimes it can look inexpensive and crappy. And I do not want to spend $15 on an 8 feet piece of decor that I can buy at our local dollar store. This is a cheap way to add some personality to your fall decor. I’m going to warn you though, it can be a bit messy but the end result is totally worth it.
Materials needed for Glitter Dipped Leaf Garland
- Leaf garland
- Mod podge
- Gold glitter
- Painters tape
I prefer the sparkle mod podge when working with glitter. Depending on your garland will depend on how you tape this off. My garland had removal leaves. I removed the leaves and then taped them to the back of some old wrapping paper. You will add the tape down the middle of the leaf horizontally. Apply the mod podge to the top part of the leaf.
Add the gold glitter to the area with the mod podge and allow to dry for one hour.
After one hour, carefully remove the tape and shake off any excess glitter. (There will be a lot of excess glitter but that’s because you were meant to sparkle!!)
After the tape has been removed, re-attach the leaves to the garland. If your garland does not have removable leaves, just tape the whole thing down on the wrapping paper.
I love the pop of glam it adds to my decor! It’s so pretty and vibrant! You could wrap it around a wreath form and make a beautiful fall wreath for your front door!
How gorgeous is that?! I love the warm gold tones of fall and the gold glitter really makes the leaves pop! Rose gold would be pretty on this too. This would look amazing on your Thanksgiving tablescape. Consider adding these Gold Leaf Placecards too!
