Glittered Leaves Door Hanger

I found this glittery idea in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. It involved two of my favorite things: leaves and glitter. I know a lot of you out there hate glitter. It is messy and takes forever to clean up, but it’s the holidays, and what is a holiday without sparkly glitter?

This project is very easy to complete. I finished it in a couple of hours. The longest thing you will have to do is wait for the glitter and glue to dry.

Supplies used:

  • Artificial leaves
  • Mod Podge (matte)
  • Sponge Brush
  • Glitter (multiple colors)
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Jute Rope
  • Burlap Ribbon (optional)

Begin by applying a layer of Mod Podge on each leaf with a foam brush. Then, sprinkle glitter on the leaves until they are completely covered.

Let the leaves dry for a couple of hours, then seal them with another layer of Mod Podge.

Cut wire-edge ribbon of your choice into various lengths, and glue the leaves to the end of each cut piece. (I used jute rope instead of wire ribbon.)

Gather the ribbon ends, tie them into a knot at the top, and trim the ends.

Here is the finished hanger:

I love seeing all the beautiful colors together. I added a burlap bow to the top of the hanger to finish the look. I can’t wait to use this hanger for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
