Glittery Fallen Autumn Leaves

As you all know, we are big fans of glittery pumpkins. We love the autumny-ness of pumpkins to begin with, but then add glitter and it’s downright an obsession. While nothing will separate us from glittering up our favorite gourds every October, we wanted to see how other glitter crafters were approaching the alternative symbol of autumn – the fallen leaf.

A quick search on Etsy reveals that a favorite way to display a glittery autumn leaf is via pendant banner. Here are some of our favorites by Etsy crafters LittlePumpkinPapers and WhateversHandmades:

Glittery autumn leaf pendant banners are a great way to add some seasonal décor to your Thanksgiving or holiday decorations. To create your own, start with a fine grit of real German glass glitter in orange, red, goldcopper and brown. Be sure to coat your leaf cut-outs with a tacky craft glue that dries clear and then get glittering!

How to Throw a Glittery Halloween Party

Not all Halloween decorations need to be ghoulish. Incorporating a pop of glittery sparkle on your Halloween décor adds a touch of sophistication that all your party guests will appreciate.

Irresistible Glitter Pumpkins

diy-glitter-pumpkins-mainEvery fall-themed party must start with a wide selection of glittered pumpkins, gourds, or squash. Make them the center of your holiday table, tuck them to the side of your doorstep, or arrange them on the hearth. A be-glittered real pumpkin will last through both Halloween and Thanksgiving, while a fake one will last for many seasons.


Surprises at Every Turnglitter bats

The best part of Halloween is the unexpected. To give your guests a surprise at every turn, consider hanging flying bats or even displaying these spooky witch legs crafted by fabsspiritcentral.

A coating of light reflecting black glitter brings your bats to life as they bob and fly in the breeze and stripes of red glitter give your witch’s stockings their characteristic evil look but with a touch of class.

Boo-tiful Decorations

Take the “boo” factor up a notch with scary décor for your table and walls. Black cats, ghost cupcake toppers, and even a witch’s caldron look all that more festive when accented with a touch of glitter.
