Painted dollar store leaves

We love using fake floral items from the dollar store, but sometimes they look so, well…. fake. But that doesn’t have to be the case! Michelle at The Painted Hinge took some dollar store leaves to the next level with a clever paint treatment that makes them look so much more real. Use these on their own as table scatter, or work them into your other fall decor projects! [how to make realistic painted dollar store leaves]

Project estimate:

  • Fake leaves, $1
  • White glue, on hand or $1
  • Chalk paint, on hand or about $2 and up
  • Antiquing wax, about $3 and up
  • Wax paper, on hand

Total: about $4 and up
