    gilded gold foil terra cotta pot DIY couldn’t be easier! I love how it adds just a touch of soft gold to a space. It doesn’t all together transform the earthiness of the terra cotta pot, it just adds a hint of organic luxury.

    -spray adhesive (I used Elmer’s craft bond spray adhesive) *you might want to wear a mask while spraying adhesive!*

    -(optional) sealant. I used this one to keep the gold from wearing off my pot.

    Spray a section of your pot with your adhesive. Be sure to put some paper down so you don’t get the adhesive on your table or counter. I found that when I sprayed too much, the gold didn’t transfer as well. So keep it about 12″ away, and spray very lightly.

    I tried different techniques to get the gold onto the pot. Instead of spraying the pot, I sprayed the back of the foil, and then placed it onto the pot and rubbed with my hand. Both methods work well, although I will say, the lighter the glue, the better. There were areas where the gold didn’t take, so I went back over them with more foil and adhesive. I think less is more with the gold though, the unfoiled spots make it looks so cool.
