The supplies for this DIY are so simple.  Ready?

1. Find a set of twig pencils at your local Home Goods.

2. Grab your go to *Gold Leafing Paint.

3. Washi tape.

The steps for these babies are just about as complex as the supply list.  First of all decide on the amount of gold you would like to be shown.  I wanted mine just under halfway.

Lastly, using your *Gold Leafing Paint… paint away!
