I am so into the vintage-y, rustic look when it comes to home decor, holiday or not. But what I'm not into is heavy pricing for items that could easily be DIY. Check out the DIY white and gold foil reindeer below, using strictly items from Oriental Trading.

 

white & gold reindeer statues

what you need:

reindeer statuettes
metal paints
variety of paintbrushes
acrylic sealer
gold foil
newspaper


how to make it:

1. Lay out newspaper to cover to cover your work space.


2. Using the metal beading paint, completely paint the reindeer statuettes. The paint may not be even and may appear streaky, which is okay. This gives a vintage look. Let paint dry.


3. Carefully paint on spots of acrylic sealer. Add gold foil to the areas carefully. (Use the accompanying tissue to place the foil or it may stick to your fingers.) Let dry.


4. Using a paintbrush, brush off loose pieces of foil. Voila, you're ready to decorate!









What pieces would you love to have, but don't love the price?
