Every day, fellow writer Sarah and I peruse craft, art, and design blogs, and we couldn’t help but notice this trend: Gold is everywhere! It’s taken over the blogosphere! So we decided to do a DIY round-up!
We’ve picked our favorite gold DIY posts and compiled them here, so take a look!
Who said magnetic alphabet letters were just for kids? This do-it-yourself is fun and fast! Put them on the fridge or file cabinet. You’ll have a razzle-dazzle way to leave messages for your roomies, family, or co-workers!
This DIY is great for an ugly side table you have hanging around. If you don’t already have a table, check out your local flea markets and garage sales; you’re sure to find a steal there! This makes for a great refurb project!
Need a new t-shirt, but don’t want to pay retail price for a great design? How about this Helvetica tee? This tutorial is great because you don’t have to use the font Helvetica. You can choose whatever font and letter you want! To find awesome, free fonts, look here!
A beautiful mirror can cost hundreds of dollars. Monica decided to make her own, and I think it’s better than her inspirations! This project will get you outside in nature and result in a handsome mirror.
If you’re a big reader, I bet your shelves are jammed with books (like my own). These DIY gold animal bookends offer flexibility of choice, from the type of animal you want to the color of paint you want on the brick. Check it out!
Bunting is perfect when decorating a child’s room, and this gold bunting made from plastic straws is a cheap, easy way to do it. I think this would look fabulous with a pink and gold color scheme for a little girl.
These giant gold scissors would look perfect adorning the wall in a craft room. If you don’t want scissors, there are lots of other fun wooden cut-outs that make for great wall art. Find what suits you!
These hand painted mugs are a perfect gift. I love how stylish they are, and you can put whatever you want on them. Perfect for a wedding, birthday, or anniversary, these mugs can serve as a present for anyone celebrating anything! I like them so much, I might make one for myself!
