I've developed a new obsession with gold dipped, gold coated, gold plated, etc. If it's gold, I'm all about it. I've found a number of ideas for gold covered items online that I'm thinking will make perfect DIY projects. Check them out:
Joss & Main (you need to be a member to view, but it's free). Since they're so tiny and only come 10 to a set for $50, and I'm thinking I want to hang them all over a wall in my bedroom, it just isn't worth it to buy them. But they look easy enough to make, right? I'm thinking paper mache, matte white spray paint, and either gold spray paint or gold leaf. Definitely a little time consuming, but I think they'll make an incredible statement as wall art in my bedroom!
HonestlyWTF, which is where I've gotten a ton of other awesome DIY inspiration as well. This project looks ridiculously easy and I have a huge collection of glassware that I'm planning to gild as soon as I find some time. My friend H and I were actually talking about making this one a girls' craft night project!
inspired this project either. He uses real 24k gold and it's ridiculously expensive. His work is really pretty, though...)
