Shine Bright with DIY Gold Projects

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. Hopefully, you’re not expecting to find a pot of gold at the end of any rainbows, but you can still appreciate the beauty of one of our most precious metals. This blog post is all about DIY projects you can do with gold in some of its many forms.


Gold leaf may seem like an intimidating medium to work with, but the end results can be amazing. Make your own gold leaf pendent with instructions provided by Sophie Monet. If you’re short on cash, but still appreciate a little bling, here are instructions on how to make a gold cuff bracelet with lace. Don’t forget earrings! Here are DIY gold earrings that look both graceful and unique.

Interior Decorating

You can brighten up any interior with a bit of gold shine. Here are instructions on making a gold-dipped mirror which can be done in as little as $15. When the flowers start to bloom, you’ll need somewhere pretty to display them. Why not make your own vases with glass milk bottles and gold liquid leaf? Don’t stop there! You can even DIY gold furniture, such as this side table, perfect for setting your new vases on.


You can make a statement with DIY gold you can wear. Start with your feet, with easy to make gold-tipped tennis shoes. Next, add a pair of jeans you decorated with doilies and gold fabric paint. Add a personalized T-shirt with these simple instructions, then top it off with a gold feather headband, and you’re ready to show the world how much you can shine.

With all this gold, you’re sure to shine bright (and maybe even melt the last of that snow)!
