Gold Leaf Ornaments

Homemade and inexpensive, gold leaf ornaments are a perfect complement to silver bells.


  • Toothpicks
  • Skewers or chopsticks
  • 1 large piece of foam
  • Round ornaments, various colors and sizes
  • Gold leaf (4 small bulbs or 2 large bulbs will use about 1 medium sheet.)
  • Glue adhesive
  • 2 small paint brushes
  • 1 spool rustic twine


  1. Start by sticking the toothpicks (for smaller bulbs) and the skewers or chopsticks (for larger bulbs) into the foam. This is where you will place the bulbs while they dry.
  2. Remove the tops from the ornaments. Save for later.
