The Perfect Planter


Despite the recent cold weather, I think it is safe to say that Spring is here! Tis the season for flowers, and picnics, and hikes and CRAFTING, obviously. Which brings me to today's DIY: planters. Break out your old mason jars because I am going to teach you how to make gold leaf planters in a matter of minutes.

Supplies:
Sponge brush
Gold leaf sheets
Gold leaf adhesive
Mason jars (various sizes - I used these for my mini planters)
Clear finishing spray paint

Git-R-Gold:
  1. Apply adhesive to the jar with your sponge brush. 
  2. Break off pieces of your gold leaf and apply them to the adhesive in various patterns. GET CREATIVE. Use your sponge brush to smooth out the leaf. 
  3. Allow the leaf to dry. 
  4. Once dry, spray your planters with the crystal clear spray paint. This serves as a protective finish. 
  5. Add your plants and you are done!!
