Hot Glue Glitter Leaves

2 Materials
20 Minutes

A hot glue gun and glitter is all you need to make these beautiful fall leaves! You can use foil to put them on but if you have Teflon sheets those work wonderfully well too. ( LOTS MORE PHOTOS AND INFO HERE)

SUPPLIES Glue gun (high heat) Glitter Foil & spray oil (regular oil can also be used) Teflon sheet (no foil or oil is needed if you use this) Dry erase marker (optional) Clear spray sealer (optional)

If your using foil you need to spread a thin layer of cooking oil over it before drizzling your hot glue. I used a Teflon sheet to make mine. Carefully make a leaf outline with the hot glue. Then drizzle inside the shape as shown. You do not have to be perfect on this. You may need to practice a little to get the method down.

Quickly sprinkle your glitter of the still hot glue.

All the glue to cool and peel off your leaf.

These can be used in a variety of ways for Fall. Spray them with a coat of clear sealer if desired to help keep the glitter from falling off.

    These are great but what do you do with them after they are made?
