Learn how to create your own easy and inexpensive vintage key art with gold gilded frame.
St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and, although we typically don’t do much around here to celebrate the Irish tradition, I thought it would be fun to join a group of other Canadian bloggers in hosting a “Pot of Gold” giveaway! I’m sure you’d love to get your hands on $300 worth of Paypal cash! (More on that in a bit.)
In the spirit of today’s giveaway, each of us were asked by Tara from Suburble to create something gold. Of course, I went to my old stand by, liquid gilding, as it hasn’t let me down yet! (Take a look at my gold gilded bird art and fabric pin board to see what I’m talking about.)
This vintage key art project is super easy and will definitely add a bit of sparkle to your space.
DIY Vintage Key Art
Liquid gold gilding
Scrapbook paper or wallpaper
Magnets and/or glue
Lightly sand your shadow box frame and tape off glass portion with painter’s tape. Apply a coat of gold liquid gilding to entire box (inside and out) except for the back (which will be covered with paper).
Once it’s dry (overnight is best), cut the paper the same size as the back and hold in place with glue or magnets (depending on if your shadow box backing is magnetized or not). Attach the vintage keys with magnets or glue. That’s it!
