Snowy Leaves Tabletopper

Winter Christmas crafts don't have to feature Santa, reindeer or even elves. Make a refined and elegant Snowy Leaves Tabletopper from Lisa Fulmer to decorate your space all seasonal long. This project will brighten up your space and add a touch of class.


  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
  • Autumn leaves – fresh from your garden leaf pile
  • Decoupage medium – gloss
  • Paint brush – 1-1/2″ wide
  • Glitter – crystal and silver
  • Craft wire – green floral and gold decorative
  • Round nose pliers
  • Icy holiday craft branch
  • Non-stick crafting surface
  • Scissors


  1. Select leaves from your yard in various autumn colors in all sizes.
  2. Lay leaves on non-stick crafting surface. Brush decoupage medium onto both side of leaves. Set aside to dry on non-stick surface.
  3. Once dry, apply second coat to half of each leaf. Sprinkle with glitter mixture. Shake off excess. Set aside to dry.
  4. To create tabletopper, start arranging the largest leaves first by overlapping the edges. If you have thick stems on the leaves, you will probably want to cut them off so that your tabletopper will lay flatter. (Leave one stem on large leaf so that you can wire on the holiday branch.)
  5. Apply Aleene’s Tacky Glue to leaves to hold them in place. Alternate your colors and shapes working from the larger leaves to the middle leaves to the smaller leaves. Leave undisturbed overnight to dry. You will note that the leaves will continue to turn color and slightly lift at edges over the next days which adds a nice dimension to your piece.
  6. Attach craft branch to leaf stem with green floral wire.
  7. Wrap gold wire around pencil to create coiled wire. Use pliers to create swirl at end. Slip over branch and leaf stem for a decorative touch.
  8. Display with votive lights.
