Gold Triangle Bangles // DIY

If you haven't entered the giveaway with Allena Mistral that I'm participating in, then DO IT! (Update: giveaway closed!)

Today we're making these beautifully simple gold triangle bangles!

For this project I used this amaaaazing liquid gold leaf stuff that I have also used to paint my shoes gold. If I'm not careful, everything I own will soon be gold.



Read on to learn how!
SUPPLIES:
-Wooden bangle bracelet (I got mine at Hobby Lobby!)
-Liquid gold leaf (regular gold paint will work as well)
-Painter's Tape
-X-acto knife
-Paintbrush
-Clear acrylic glaze topcoat

HOW:


1 & 2. Tear off a strip of Painter's Tape and cut your design out with the X-acto knife. 

3. Put the tape on the bracelet.

4. Paint with liquid gold leaf (or regular gold paint, but the liquid gold leaf stuff is FANTASTIC.)

5. Give a quick coat of clear glaze topcoat.

Enjoy!

  2. It is such a wonderful idea, very simple and easy to follow. I love the way you ended your instruction with the scripture quote from Psalms, 100:3. By this I understand that you must be a believer in Christ. I am a missionary in India and one of the way I help needy people by teaching various crafts by this way sharing the Love of Christ. I will try out your bangle instruction. Meanwhile you can take a look at some of my creations at the following site:
