I was playing around with gold leaf the other day and it came to me. I totally needed to decorate some of my white pumpkins with a pretty gold leaf design! You will love how pretty these Gold Leaf Stenciled Pumpkins look!!
I started by cutting out some stencils out of adhesive vinyl. You can use a cutting machine or simply trace something on the back and cut with scissors. Remove the leaf.
Adhere vinyl stencil to front of pumpkin.
Add a thin layer of gold leaf adhesive. Allow 30-45 minutes to dry.
Place gold leaf face down on stencil and dry brush over the vellum backing. Once the entire stencil area is covered, remove the remaining gold leaf.
Dry brush the gold leaf until smooth. For any empty spots, add a small amount of gold leaf and smooth back down.
Remove the adhesive vinyl stencil.
Add a thin coat of sealer over the stenciled area to secure the gold leaf to the pumpkin.
Aren’t they gorgeous? Simple and classy.
I adore them!! They look perfect on my fall porch! Have you ever used gold leaf? It’s so much fun! I’m kind of addicted to it now!
