Glitter Leaf Sun Catcher

Lately, we’ve been doing activities with leaves. I was inspired by this post from, On Your Own, But Never Alone. I thought why not use the glitter leaves as sun catchers?

What you need:

  • Leaves that are dry, but not crunchy,
  • Glitter glue,
  • Paint brushes,
  • Mod podge,
  • Contact paper or clear sheet protectors,
  • String.

What you do:

1. Lay leaves on a flat surface and paint them with the glitter glue. You can paint just parts of the leaf or the entire thing. We used three different colors of glitter glue.

3. Paint leaves with mod podge.

6. Find a nice place to hang your creation. Some leaves will catch the sun and others will not depending on the color. Either way, you have a nice glittery fall decoration.
