Hey gang! Here’s another fun use for your gold leaf supplies. We still have a few blank spots on our walls and I wanted to DIY something simple but cool, so this is what we came up with. We had all of the supplies, so it didn’t cost a cent! If you’ve got your gold leaf materials and some old frames laying around, you can do it too.
Make Time: 5 Minutes per Frame
Step 1: Use a paintbrush to splatter or drip gold leaf adhesive on a piece of cardstock.
Step 2: Allow the adhesive to dry for a minute or so, until the adhesive is tacky but not wet. If you have lots of adhesive pooling, gently dab it with a tissue to soak up a little excess. Be careful not to smudge the glue. Place gold leaf over all of the adhesive and smooth it down with a soft, dry paintbrush to be sure it adheres.
Step 3: Use a stiff paintbrush to buff off the excess gold leaf.
Step 4: Place the finished product in a frame and hang it up!
Love how these look all hung up together. I feel like this technique would be SUPER cool on a large-scale canvas, hanging over a mantle or something. Would you try it? xoxo
