DIY Gold Leaf Maracas

I loveeee the blogging community and connecting with fellow creatives.  Paige from the beautiful blog, The Love Designed Life is celebrating her son’s first birthday!!  She gathered a bunch of creatives to contribute to her son’s modern fiesta.  Be on the lookout for an amazing giveaway on Instagram with The Love Designed Life,  Adelisa & CoHooray EverydayMintedPaperFoxLA,  Tini Pinatas & Woven by Ro    It is your boho, weaved dreams all wrapped up in one giveaway… I want to enter myself, but I think it is not allowed… Maybe I will have my husband sneak in an entry (kidding!!)
Anyhoo, I was asked to do a DIY and I fell in love with these colored maracas… and thought a touch of gold would be perfect.
!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s); = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

Maracas!! (isn’t that so fun to say!?)
(You can get all in a kit or buy larger sizes separately if you really love gold leaf like me)
2 Brushes (one for glue, one for sealant)
Brush adhesive on the maracas and wait at least 20 minutes for it to get tacky (the instructions in a gold leaf set say 45 minutes, but in my experience, it does not take that long) 
Place gold leaf sheet on top and smooth down.
Brush sealant on as you smooth down and let dry.
Shake it, baby!!
