Tutorial Tuesday – Autumn Glitter Leaf Garland

Tutorial Tuesdays at www.elistonbutton.com - Eliston Button - That Crafty Kid

Hello there lovely Buttoneers! If you caught last weeks ‘Workspace Wednesday – Hello Autumn‘ you will know that I fall in love with autumn every year. I love the rich colours and glittering leaves which inspired me to create this autumn glitter leaf garland. I wanted to bring some of the autumn goodness indoors to the warmth of my home.

Now I can snuggle up under a chunky knit blanket with a hot mug of tea and feel all cosy whilst I admire the beauty that autumn brings. 

I wanted to share with you the simple steps and creative ideas that make up this glittering leaf garland so you can make one too!

I just love how each leaf glitters as they hang and twirl just like autumn falling leaves glittering in the golden light.

 Did you fall in love with autumn again this year? What is your favourite thing about this beautiful season? 

I am a huge fan of glitter but definitely had a love/hate relationship with it the day I made this tutorial! I genuinely think people think glitter must come out of my pores! Vacuum cleaner at the ready!

If you had a go at making the Autumn Glitter Leaf Garland, I would love to see it so please send me a photo and tell me all about it.
