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 LittlePumpkinPapersand 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, gold, copper and brown. Be sure to coat your leaf cut-outs with a tacky craft glue that dries clear and then get glittering!
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
Every 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 Turn
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.
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.
This sparkly pumpkin and bat welcome sign by 302WoodWorks lets your guests know they are in for a good time!
Get your Halloween party started with any of these great glittery ideas or design your own glitter creation with real German glass glitter in orange, black, white or try our orange glitter and beads sampler set that gives you a selection of 6 colors and materials.
Grab your scarves and leather boots and snuggle up with everyone’s favorite fall combination – pumpkin spice – now available in glitter! Just like the seasonal Starbucks beverage, our pumpkin spice glitter blend is warm, toasty, and perfect for autumn.
A Meyer Imports’ exclusive, our pumpkin spice glitter medley is made from finely ground real German glass glitter that is silver coated for extra sparkle. This glitter blend incorporates the lovely hues of orange, light brown, and copper for a mix that is uniquely fall. Over time, a beautiful patina ages the colors, giving it an authentic vintage glass glitter look.
Add a little pumpkin spice love to all your autumn crafts from seasonal décor to tablescapes, greeting cards, candles and more. Like all our real German glass glitters, pumpkin spice glitter is available in a 1-ounce “pinch pot”, as well as 4 or 8-ounce bags. Kilo or pound quantities are also available for those who can’t get enough pumpkin spice glitter. Unlike Starbucks’ offering, pumpkin spice glitter is always in season at Meyer Imports and we keep our shelves well stocked. Give it a try this season!
This is a video we did a while back to show off the difference in the grits (or grain size) of our German Glass Glitters It is kind of long, (8 minutes) but does do a great job in showing the differences in the very fine to very coarse glitters. This was shot before we launched our Super Shard line, I will have to do an update for that 40 Grit glitter. And thanks to Carlos for doing the demo!
Our Rosengold Glitters create a wonderful texture of time and space that transports you to a location of long ago where only the best was good enough for the kings of state.
This is a new line for Meyer Imports, developed in concert with our factories in Germany. We wanted to invoke the regal palaces of turn of the century Germany and bring to our customers a glitter that only we could produce.
Named for some of the most storied cities in Europe, our famous Gold glitters, uniquely blended with our wonderfully decadent Rose glitters create our Rosengold line.
And our Rosengold Essen blend takes it a step farther with touch of golden beads to complete the symphony of color.
Additional RosenGold Glitters will be added to the store, but if you can’t wait, try our 6 bottle set to preview all six Rosengold colors.
