It has been a rough week here in our household and I found this little quote on Pinterest and it made me smile.
So, I tried to think of what I could transform with gold to help turn life’s lemons into lemonade. After Christmas, I bought these agate Christmas tree ornaments at Target for about $1 each. I took the hanging hooks off and decided to use them as coasters. They were beautiful, but needed something more.
I was inspired by these beautiful gold-rimmed coasters from an online store called 1956 Heritage. Aren’t they to die for??
So, I took the Krylon Gold Leafing Pen I used for this project and rimmed the edges with gold leaf. You can find a gold leafing pen at most craft stores or online at Amazon.
Here is my version.
They are not nearly as sparkly or gold as the inspiration piece, but I think they are still really pretty. They only cost me a little over a $1 each to replicate. The inspiration coasters were $110 for a set! I love getting the look for less!!
What about you? Has life given you lemons lately? Did you paint something gold??
