Gold Tape Leaves



Using a natural branch from our backyard and some gold Duck Brand Tape, I was able add a little holiday sparkle to our table in an instant…

Family Chic Gold Leaves

These easy gold leaves, made from tape, almost look like metallic leather.

You could use these to decorate a package as well.

To make these start out by selecting a branch from outside. Cut off a 4-inch piece of tape and place a stem from the branch onto the adhesive side of the tape (make sure the stem is placed a bit off center so that it is centered when you fold the tape over).

To add dimension, I folded the leaves in half to create a crease down the center.

    Oh my goodness! You have no idea how much I needed this post! I was out trying to find gold leaves in the leftover Christmas floral stuff, but didn’t find anything I liked. This is PERFECT!
