If you answered yes to either of those questions you are going to love this simple idea to bring some trendy gold into your home for fall! I created this gold glitter leaf garland in just a few minutes (plus drying time) and strung it up on the bookshelves in my living room and hung individual ones from the mirror in my dining room.
You can get all of the supplies you will need at the craft store or even Walmart.

You will need: some foam leaves in these not so cool colors, gold spray paint (not pictured) and some of this really fun glitter spray. This is the first time I’ve used this stuff and I love it! It is like instant glitter!
Ok. Let’s get started!
Lay your leaf cutouts out and give them a coat of gold spray paint. Let them dry and do the other side too. (I did this while playing with my kids in the backyard so that they kept me entertained during drying time 🙂 )
Oh and be sure to spray at a little bit of an angle so that you get the tiny edges. You don’t want any of the yellow or orange or whatever color your cut outs are to show.
Once they are gold give them a good blast of the gold glitter spray and let that dry. I used a brand with no alcohol because I didn’t want it to shrivel my foam, so it was a little bit runny, but it dried just fine.
Tie them onto a string by their stems and hang them up to add some modern gold leaf garland to your fall decor! And that’s it!
Pretty cool huh? I’ve always wondered what I can do with those kid craft foam cutouts and now I know!
Spray paint is always the answer right?
