i read this blog post from Emily Henderson recently and loved the idea. i have never done gold leafing before but since, ya know, everyone is into metallics right now i thought i'd try my hand at this. i used copper leaf on recycled jars as christmas presents this year.
here are some that i kept for myself, because.... well i couldn't part with them :)
i won't redo a diy since you can just check out Emily's. i didnt buy the starter kit and used double sided tape on my candles. it worked really well and i felt like a got a more defined line that way. enjoy.
