halloween diy | gold leaf bat rings

10.27.2011
A diy dedicated to Halloween... SwellMayde style! I saw these bat rings at Target and instantly wanted to rework them. I loved the idea of fancy-ing them up with some gold leaf. Here's how...


materials:
- plastic bat rings (here)
- spray adhesive
- gold leaf / copper leaf

1. spray the bat rings with the adhesive, using a light coat to fully cover all angles. (please wear a mask or bandana over your nose/mouth... breathing in this stuff is no bueno!)
2. carefully add the gold leaf onto the ring. gently pat to keep in place. i recommend adding small pieces of gold leaf at a time. cover the ring entirely. let dry for a couple hours.
3. voila! a swellmayde gold leaf bat ring! i liked the idea of using both copper leaf and gold leaf... the copper leaf finished similar to rose gold, which is my favorite!

Happy Halloween SwellMayders!!
