Forget the boring colors and bring back the gold! What better way to celebrate 2015 than by incorporating gold into everything? Well maybe not everything, but at least something in each room of your home.
Gold Dipped Candle Wood Holder
- Wood carver
- Tea candle
- Gold paint
- Log (small enough to sit on a table)
- Wax paper
Given the materials, this might seem difficult but in reality it’s extremely easy. Simply carve out a hole big enough for the tea candle to sit down into the log.?Next, you’ll want to pour the gold paint into the bowl so that you can dip the bottom of the log into it.?The amount of gold paint you pour corresponds to how high you want the paint to go on the log. Once you’ve dipped the log, hover it above the bowl to allow for the excess to drip off then flip it over and set on the wax paper so that it can dry. You may accelerate the drying process by blow drying the paint if you’d like. Regardless, when the paint has completely dried, flip the log back so that it’s standing up right and place the tea candle into the hole.
Gold Lamp Shade
- Black circular fabric lamp shade
- Gold spray paint
- Gold glitter
This one will be a little tricky because you need to cover the outer black part of the lamp shade so it doesn’t get any gold on it. You can do this by tapping wax paper to the outside of it or by free handing it and hoping it doesn’t get any paint on it. You may also buy a white lamp shade and simply spray paint the outer part black once you’ve finished the gold. Either way, you need to spray paint the inside of the lamp shade and quickly glitter it before the paint dries. When you place the finished product on the base and turn the light on, the light will catch the glitter and make it glisten.
Gold Dotted Canvas
- Big gold confetti
- White canvas
- Glue gun
Simply glue gun each gold confetti to the canvas in a trickle down effect. Meaning, glue a lot of confetti to the top of the canvas and as you make your way down, disperse them more and more. You can also make a simply polka doted canvas for a more elegant look.
