Fall Foliage – glitter style

We can’t stop the falling leaves and we can’t stop creating fun leave decor using our glitter papers. This leaf banner uses three popular colors that are a great choice for decorating this time of year.

Supplies:

  • Bronze glitter non-shed cardstock
  • Orange glitter non-shed cardstock
  • Copper glitter non-shed cardstock
  • Metal hanger (accessory available from Tim Holtz)
  • Hemp twine

We had fun finding a place to hang this banner. After much deliberation we landed on the wreath outside our front door.
