While the final metallic layer is still wet, sprinkle your chosen glitter over the surface of the leaf. Use glitter that matches the Metallic Paint color or that complements it nicely. Add some variety by glittering only a few leaves, not every one.

When the leaves are dry, use the punch hole to add a hole to the top of each leaf. Cut the ribbon into various lengths and string through the leaves, leaving a space between each leaf. Hang each strand onto the branch.
