On one of my many trips to Hobby Lobby, I came across this cute fall photo but didn’t want to spend what they were asking for. So I walked over to the scrapbook paper section and picked up a piece of paper for .59. I already have a fall leaf stencil at home, but they sell them at the craft stores for less than $2.00. I also already have gold paint and gold glitter at home, so on this project I literally just needed to buy the paper.
I picked out this paper and cut it the size I needed, which was 5×7 for my frame. I placed my stencil over the paper and held it firm and sponged over my gold paint in the stencil. When I was done I sprinkled over my gold glitter while the paint was wet. And that’s it! After it dried I put it in my frame for display.
Last year, I sprayed some mason jars gold here is my DIY post
My little pumpkin here I found at Dollar Tree and spray painted it a light gold with spray paint I already had at home. I let it fully dry and took a paint brush and brushed on Modge Podge and then again sprinkled on my glitter. My polka-dot pumpkin above; I spray painted it cream and when it was dry, I took a pencil with an eraser and dipped the eraser in gold paint to make my polka dots. Cheating, yes but it worked.
