Easy Gilded Table Décor
By Monica Edwards
It’s that time of the year to reflect upon our lives and to give thanks. Instead of going out and spending a bunch of money on your home décor this year take a step back and make something. Sit down with the kids or your nieces and nephews and create something that will be a keepsake for live.
Time: 2-3 hours
1. I used an actual wall plaque to create a table centerpiece for Thanksgiving. Simply cover the base of the plaque with patterned paper. Once done I then used Stazon in Orange Zest, St. Valentines and VersaFine in Vintage Sephia to color the chipboard letters that spells Home…
2. As you can see the pigment ink takes well to chipboard. The color soaked deep into the chipboard as if it came colored the way it is. I then used some Tear It! Tape to make decorative strips with gilding flakes.
3. I then covered some votive candles with patterned paper using more Tear It! Tape and then adhered the candles to the chipboard pieces.
4. Here is an angled picture of the table décor piece. I can’t wait to use it this Thanksgiving.
Happy Holidays everyone!
