It's time, depending on where you live, to collect and press leaves.
Stick them in a magazine or old book. Then paint with Modge Podge & cover with glitter. I do both sides, letting them dry overnight. You can also use thinned white glue. I put each glitter in a separate aluminum pan (99 cent store) , lay the leaf in the pan, & spoon the glitter on top. This will keep the kids busy for hours! Display around a mirror, on gifts, from a chandelier, in wreaths, you know... We have put ours on the Christmas tree. Collect leaves as you travel. I have them from the 3 colleges my kids attended & my sister's yard. Enjoy!No, you do not need a tutorial!You can figure this out!

I use cheap craft glitter

Those are very unique and pretty. I was at a woodworking show recently with my DH and there was someone painting scenes and landscapes etc on dried leaves, I wish I had this kind of talent.
