Dollar Tree has started stocking decorative pieces for fall, and it’s pretty easy to “take them up a notch” so they look more high end.  I liked the color and shape of these leaf bowls, so I glammed them up with glitter paint to make a pretty serving tray!


  • Leaf bowl
  • Glamour Dust Paint
  • Acorns
  • Paint

Step one:  Paint the back of the bowl with the Glamour Dust paint.

Step two:  After the paint dries, repeat as needed.  I applied three applications to get the finish I wanted.

Step three:  Paint the acorns gold.  (I had read to bake the acorns before you use the for crafting.  I wondered if this was necessary.  It is.  Trust me.  Unless you like finding little grubs crawling on your craft desk. YIKES!)

I like how the gold acorns look next to the glittery orange bowl.  It makes a pretty decorative accent that doesn’t leave you broke!  The leaf bowls come in different colors and shapes, so you have other options if you’re trying to match your decor.  Have fun crafting and creating!
