TUTORIAL: GOLD BASKETWEAVE ORNAMENTS
Start with a bag of party favors from The Dollar Tree.
Paint each favor in metallic gold. I used DecoArt.
When dry, apply a pattern with Elmer’s Glue.
Sprinkle vintage gold glass glitter to cover the glue and shake off excess. Once dry, add gold thread for hanging.
Oh, but wait there is MORE…..
