Glittery suncatchers appeal to everyone - except perhaps the person who has to clean up the glitter! Before you make these glittery autumn leaves, put down a tablecloth or plenty of newspaper. Wait for the glue to dry for the magic to happen!
You will need:
- Wool/yarn in an autumnal colour
- Clear acetate
- PVA glue
- Glitter colouring in red, gold and green.
- Our autumn leaf templates
Lay a sheet of clear acetate over the leaf templates.
Paint around the edge of the leaves with glue and stick on a length of wool tracing the outline of the leaf.
Outlining the leaves with wool
