Gilded Salt and Pepper Shakers DIY

s&p shakers cover
Gold adds sparkle to any setting and has recently become a trendy colour. It can be noticed in a lot of decor pieces, kitchenware and textiles. I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of golden leaf gilding. After I bought this set on Amazon, I went in search of DIY projects. This DIY idea was found on this blog which I decided to replicate at home.
things needed
Items you need: 1. Simple Leaf Leafing Sheets; 2. Plain white salt and pepper shakers (I got mine from Myer); 3. double-sided tape; 4. scissors.
step 1
Take a piece of tape and cut it in half.
step 2
Wrap the tape around the lower part of the shaker and apply a piece of the gold leafing around the tape.
step 3
Take the second half of the tape and cut in half again. Wrap it above the larger tape. Apply a piece of the gold leafing around the tape.
