Holiday Gold: Gilded Glass Ornaments

 P1150162Gold is often associated with holiday decorations, and this year is no different. A spectrum of metallic color palettes was on show throughout the year at various home design shows and on the fashion runways – and gold was always the center of attention.

I adore the light touches of gold on the glass ornament pictured above. It’s delicate, it’s subtle, and it’s elegant. For those of you who love DIY and crafting, it’s quite easy to recreate this ornament at home. Head out to your local craft supply store, pick up a set of plain, unadorned glass ornaments and gold glass paint. Practice the pattern on paper, and when you feel you have the look you want – paint it on the glass ball.
