DIY gold votives

I got a late start on decorating for Christmas this year, but I think I’ve managed to spread a little of the holiday cheer around the house.  I stopped by a local nursery and picked up some Christmas tree limb scraps that they had piled out by the road.  Yay a free “Christmas tree!”  I was really tempted to buy one of their mini Christmas trees, but quickly reminded myself that I would only kill it with my black thumb.  Maybe next year, I’ll be more ambitious.  So our tree this year consists of limbs delightfully arranged in a glass jar.  It works!  gold votives  (8 of 1)

So, I’ve recently noticed a lot of people in the blogging world spray painting tea cups, mugs, vases, etc. gold.  Until yesterday, I was able to resist, but the Cuban in me, that loves shiny things, finally gave in.  I bought some votives at a local craft store, taped them with painter’s tape and had some fun with my gold spray paint.  It was the perfect, quick DIY project for this tired new mama.
