I love all of the gold accents that pop up during the fall! It reminds me of the changing leaves and soft early sunsets. And since I have a small obsession with gold leaf, I decided to use it in our fall decor! These Gold Leaf Placecards are a great touch to your fall tablescape!
For these pretty placecards, you will need wooden leaf cutouts, gold leaf adhesive, gold leaf, and gold leaf sealer.
Most gold leaf kits will tell you not to use too thick of a layer of adhesive. For this project, you will need to use a thick layer because some of it does get soaked up by the wood.
It will take about 30-45 minutes to dry. Add a second coat if it does not feel sticky after it dries.
Lay the gold leaf face down over the leaf. Brush it on through the vellum layer.
Once you feel like you have a good amount on, remove the layer and excess gold leaf. Dry brush until smooth. If there are any empty spots, add a little more gold leaf and brush smooth until completely covered.
Add a coat of sealer to hold the gold leaf in place.
Grab some letter stickers from the local craft store and add everyone’s names!
It looks so pretty and classy!
