Gold Leaf Shell DIY Tutorial

Are you as ready for summer as I am?  Wow!  This has been a LONG winter.  To combat my winter blues, I gathered some shells from our summer beach trip and added a little glam to their already beautiful form.  

Here are the supplies you will need:  
gold leaf metal sheets
 gild adhesive glue
paintbrush
various shells




First, I applied a few drops of the gilding adhesive to the shell

Next, I place some pieces of gold leaf sheets in the shell

Using the paintbrush, tap the gold leaf gently into the shell


 Tap out any bubbles.. 

Allow to dry overnight


And there you have it!  
This is such an easy DIY and adds glam to your shell collection in a matter of minutes!

What are you doing to combat the winter blues?

Stay Warm friends!
