Gold Painted Leaves

I recently shared these leaves on Honey Bear Lane as one of my contributor posts.  If you read Heidi's blog, then you already saw these over there.  If you don't, then you can see my wall art transformation here. (Then you should go see what Heidi's been up to and her shop full of gorgeous puff quilts)

This is what my Ikea mirrors looked like before.

I snipped a few fake leaves off of a garland and painted them each with gold paint.  

Next I cut a square of cream colored cardstock to fit in each mirror and attached a leaf with glue dots.

And here's my new display of gilded leaves.  

Gold paint is a super fast and easy way to add some popular gold tones to dress up a fall wreath, centerpiece or mantel.  I hope you'll try it!

  6. It looks fantastic!
    I dislike fake leaves and flowers, but in their best golden appearance they are really beautiful, especially if spectacularly displayed.
    I LOVE the mirror display! Got some of them bad boys myself, but not enough to hang them so beautifully. Dang >.<
