Gold Tropical Leaves For Your Home

I’m so glad that I’ve gotten to share my home makeover with you guys – it’s been so fun seeing the transformation and the result of all of our hard work. If you’ve been following along, you know that I’m a huge fan of both gold and tropicana accents. I usually always have fresh flowers throughout my home, but I decided to try something different when I found this cute DIY idea on Instagram. These gold tropical leaves are made in about 15 minutes – you just need a variety of leaves, washi tape, and spray paint! They make a totally chic and unexpected arrangement for your home. Try it!

Supplies:

An assortment of tropical leaves. I used Monstera leaves (these are the cool split leaves that you see all over Pinterest), tea leaves and palm leaves. You can get them at a local florist – call around to different ones in your area to see if they carry these!

Gold spray paint

Roll of washi tape

Butcher paper

Steps:

1) Tape off your leaves into the design that you want the spray paint to be; for the Monstera leaves, I covered the stem so that just the leaf itself would get sprayed. Have fun with different shapes!

2) Take these outside and set on a large sheet of butcher paper. Cover your desired sections with spray paint.

3) Leave to dry for about an hour, and remove washi tape carefully. Place in a vase with water immediately.
