Gold Leaf Acorns and Pine Cones

I know, you thought I was done painting things gold.

I guess you figured since I already turned pumpkins and skeletons gold and even wrote on my mirror with a gold paint pen that I would be done, but I am not.

I am not sure why I am so drawn to gold this year.

Not that acorns and pine cones aren’t already perfect just as they were intended, but sometimes we all need a zhush.

Even acorns and pine cones.

So I added some gold leaf paint to my acorns.

  These were off a no longer used garland, but the real thing could easily be used as well.

And I painted gold leaf paint to the inside and outside edges of the pine cone.

So not that I am trying to mess with Mother Nature or anything, but I happen to think this gold leaf pine cone is stunning.

I am hoping you are not hoping that I am done putting gold on all things fall.

Stay tuned…

  1. These are SO pretty, Laura! So festive. Perfect for fall and into the Christmas season too. I’m including a link back in my ‘natural elements’ highlights in the DIY Fall Festival tomorrow. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity…I definitely want to make some of these with my Martha Stewart gold leaf. Just waiting for the perfect inspiration. This is it! 😉
