Metallic Leaf Garland and Decorations

How stunning are this Metallic Leaf Garland and Decorations designed for us by Jane from Snapdragon online. I have been a long time admirer of Jane and love her style and was delighted when she agreed to collaborate with me on a fabulous craft project that is perfect for children and adults alike. 

So let me tell you a little bit more about Jane –  Firstly she runs a small business, creating homewares and creative kits based in rural Scotland, season by season.  I met Jane online, Instagram I think, but what I can tell you is she has always been there, in the background being supportive in her gentle and understanding way. We connected through a mutual love of crafts, simple living, family, creativity and thriving with a health condition. I delight in receiving my quarterly studio box with everything I need in to be creative and slow down with intentional projects.

I originally did a version of this project as it was included in Jane’s Studio Box which I subscribe too and I love how she has adapted it to be a rainy day store cupboard project.

A brilliant simple seasonal DIY craft for all ages. Make stunning metallic leaf decorations, perfect for hanging on your tree or making a stunning garland.

How to make a Metallic Leaf Garland and Decorations

Step 1 – put foil on top of the paper, put a leaf on foil. You can either use one from the templates or one found on a walk.
Step 2 – draw round leaf.  Make a much longer stem than is there.
Step 3 – draw veins on leaf.
Step 4 – cut around the leaf.
Step 5 – scrunch stem to make it long and thin
