A touch of gold – DIY tutorials round-up


We love gold don’t we? I mean I do, and according to Pinterest I’m not the only one. I have started collecting all these tutorials featuring golden accents and gold paint and all the goldy goodness in this Pinterest board called Touch of gold. Here is a selection of some of my favourites by really talented crafters.

Sequined Monogram Wall Art by LuLu*s



You don’t even need to be a font freak like me to see how much this piece of decor is awesome. Ashley shows you how to do it with a papier maché letter, a glue gun and some sequin trimmings.

Golden coffee mugs by Garland of Grace

DIY gold desk dishes by Homey Oh My!

touch-gold-desk-cupsIf you paint gold the bottom of your desk organising thingies, work will be so much easier. And life will be beautiful. And you may even get extra rich, but this I can’t promise. Anyway Amy has it all covered with this tutorial which cleverly re-purposes sugar jars.
