Updated Sparkly Leaves! (You can revisit the original sparkly fall leaf post here)

Mos Podge and Stupendous Crystal Snow make a perfect6 team for creating frosty fall leaves

I love this particular Crystal Snow glitter by Stampendous. Two things I think make it perfect for creating frosty fall leaves - 1) it is somewhat transparent allowing the gorgeous fall leaf colors to show through the sparkly glitter (as you can see above) and 2) It is absolutely colorless - none of that blue/green or pink shimmer found in so many "snow glitter" products.

Lately, we have had trouble finding it in the big box craft shops but it can be ordered here. Also on Amazon.  Just be sure to purchase "Fine" rather than "ultra fine".

Sparkly Fall leaves

1) Apply a coat of Mod Podge to dried/pressed leaves; 2) liberally sprinkle on a layer of Crystal Snow; 3) let sit a couple minutes and then gently shake off the unattached crystal glitter and move the leaf to a fresh sheet of wax paper to dry completely.

4) Repeat with the other side of the leaf.

These are great scattered about on table tops, in arrangements, glued onto branches. A ornament hook can be gently inserted and the leaves can be hung from tree branches or as a garland. Or let them spin freely hung in front of windows! If you do elect to place a hook into your leaf, be sure to seal with a tiny drop of Mod Podge, once the hook is inserted.

Note:  If you have never dried and pressed fresh leaves before you can find a tutorial here.  

Have fun playing Jack Frost!
