Hello there, friends! Always a pleasure to be back here in the Lark & Linen space! I’m pretty excited about today’s Thanksgiving DIY – mostly because it combines all my favorite things – calligraphy, shiny gold, and nature… oh, and the holidays!
Perfect for upcoming Thanksgiving, or even for Christmas, these gold leaf dipped place cards (and/or decor pieces) will be a nice keepsake for your friends + family when they’re over for holiday brunch/lunch/dinner/gift giving and then some… don’t you think?
I’m sure you’ve all collected some of the gorgeous fall leaves that are currently covering our sidewalks. And this is a great way to put them to use! Simply follow the steps below. xo, Coco & Mingo
No 1:: I first tried flattening them for a day within the pages of a book (but be warned, it takes a few days for the moisture to draw from the leaves in order for the “flatness” to stick).
No 2:: Apply thin layer of gilding adhesive. Let dry for ~15 minutes.
No 4:: Apply thin layer of metal leaf sealer on top of imitation gold leaf.
Create place cards or gift tags by painting your family/friends’ names and/or create display decor pieces by writing holiday sayings, quotes, or a list of things you’re thankful for
