I've seen this idea all over Pinterest, but never really looked into how to do it until I came across this post on Nouvelle Daily.
I still had some gold leaf left over from when I made my gold leaf nail polish so all I needed was some mod podge and a cute dish!
I searched and searched for a heart shaped bowl, but had no luck. My boyfriend then spotted a shell shaped bowl in one of those cheap home stores. I figure it's meant to be a soap dish but I thought it was quite sweet so it did the job in my opinion. I ordered my mod podge on ebay.
This has to be the quickest DIY I've ever done. It took me about 5 minutes! It's just a case of squeezing some glue into a mixing bowl, applying it all over the dish using a paintbrush and then tearing the gold leaf into small pieces and letting it fall onto the dish. Leave it to dry overnight and it's ready to fill with pretty things!
What would you fill yours with? Jewellery? Make up? Sweets??
