Two things I love: Fall & Gold…So why not combine the two!
Below is a cute, fast and cheap way to beautify a fall dinner party (not to mention a way to receive some Oohs and Aahs) 🙂
*Gold Spray Paint (purchased at OSH, favorite brand pictured below)
tip: make sure it is the gold tone that you are looking for
*Package of silk leaves (purchased at JoAnns)
tip: to get the line to hang straight, run under hot water and hold ends taut
*Hot Glue Gun
The First step I took was to spray paint all of the leaves. I made sure to purchase a pack that had varying sizes. The silk leaves took and held the color very well.
After straightening out my fishing line (see tip above), I used an embroidery sized needle to thread the line. I chose to put the line in different sides of the leaves to mimic how they would fall naturally. I then used the hot glue gun to place a small dot of glue where I threaded the line in order to keep the leaves from slipping of falling off the line if it was to become windy.
And Voila! I tied them onto my outdoor lights for a super fast and beautiful way to create a chandelier look for my fall dinner party!
