Add some sparkle to your DIY projects by using Gold and Silver Composition Leaf! This low-cost alternative gives a striking and rich effect to picture frames, furniture and art objects.

This month we feature two projects where Mohawk's Gold and Silver Composition Leaf was used for decorating DIY projects. They also use Mohawk Consumer Products Sizing Liquid which is used to apply the Leaf.

Project 1: Star tree toppers

For the first project they decided to create whimsical looking stars. One star had polka dots and the second was a full-coverage silver star.


Project 2: Ball ornaments

On their second project they wanted to make some ornaments. Using plastic ornament balls, they used the Composition Leaf to give the balls a look as if they had been dipped in gold or silver.


Project 3: Foil gift tags (see their blog for photos)

The last project was to make shiny, oversized gift tags. They can be added on gifts for "to" and "from" or purely for decoration.
