Blog Archive » GOLD LEAF PAPER MACHE BOWLS
So, I think this might be my favorite DIY to date. It’s just so practical and pretty! A few friends and I decided we would get together once a month for an all day craft day. Just to create pretty things, simply for the sake of creating. Weather it be something we wear, or something for our homes, decorations for the holidays, or even little somethings for our babies. I tend to get wrapped up in projects for other people that I fail to do all the projects I want to do for myself! We’ve been dying to try out gold leaf for a while now. ONE – To create your bowl forms, you’ll need to start with balloons. TWO – Cut up your newspaper into small strips. THREE – Place your balloons upside down (or right side up, whichever way you want to look at it) inside paper cups and let them dry overnight. FOUR – Once dry, pop your balloon and remove the latex. Paint your bowls entirely white (or any color of your choice). I wanted my bowls to have a polka dot pattern within the gold leaf.
