When I was in middle school I was invited over to a friend’s house for a Halloween party. As soon as I arrived I was quickly ushered downstairs to the basement.
This should have been my first clue.
Nothing good comes from a group of middle school kids hanging out in a basement.
We were informed that we were going to be watching a Halloween movie called, “Friday the 13th” and seeing as how I really wanted to fit in with this group of kids I sat and watched it with them.
I think the scariest thing I had watched before this point in time was Scooby-Doo!
I had nightmares about it for the next 10 years. Maybe longer. No joke.
So, when it comes to Fall/Halloween decorating in my house I tend to steer clear of anything spooky and focus more on embracing all beauty that nature has to offer this time of the year!
For this weeks 5 Minute Craft I’m going to be showing you how to make Gold Gilded Leaf Plate. It’s lovely and simple and not even in the slightest bit frightening!
Here’s all you need to get started:
This could not be any easier! Just gently brush the gold (or silver) gilding liquid onto the front of the leaf. Allow it to dry for at least 2 minutes.
Then, apply Mod Podge to the back of the leaf and attach to the plate. Allow to dry for 3 minutes.
Then, either put one plate on a plate stand or group them together like I’ve done here around the mirror in my entry.
Sigh…I just love when projects come together so quickly and easily.
And when they don’t make me have visions of Freddy Krueger!
