DIY + Gold Leaf Polka Dot Pot

April 08, 2013


what s better then gold polka dots????? i know! gold leaf polka dots on a pot filled with my favorite plant of all time, succulents. so i picked up this cool slate grey pot (from my local Joann's...great grey, huh?) and some gorgeous gold leaf... then went to town. it was actually the first time i ever used Liquid Leaf and i have to say it is SO much easier then actual gold leaf sheets. two major thumbs up. in fact once i began gold leafing, i couldn't stop. so check in early next week for more gold leafed goodies! anyway, without further adue... here is my polka dot pot. 

**remember this gold polka dot vase??? 
i bet we could make that too... you think?

you'll need:
round sponge brush (i used the smaller sponge)
Liquid Leaf
ceramtic pot
succulent plant

* lay down a zip-lock baggie to protect your plate surface
 * start dotting!
 * let dry & voila!
probably the easiest DIY ever!
i hope you add some gold leaf polka dots to your home too.

This is great! I've actually been wanting to do a project with gold leaf, but couldn't decide on what to do.
