Today’s makeover is very quick, easy and of course pretty. I bought this vase/candle holder for a friend of mine from Dollarama.
After washing and drying, I cleaned it thoroughly with rubbing alcohol.
I wanted some random geometric pattern for the lower half of this vase. I just taped it in a diagonal manner to my liking and rubbed and buffed with metallic gold leaf. It is not as shiny as real gold leaf but pretty closely vibrant and of takes way less time get the effect. I did not top coated it, because rub ‘n’ buff is also wax in itself.
