Before our Thanksgiving festivities begin tomorrow, we wanted to share a really beautiful DIY project that we thought would make for the perfect backdrop for your own celebration. It also makes for a lovely hostess gift. Our in-house artist, Jess, hand painted this incredible "Gratitude Changes Everything" print for us. She then gussied it up with a bit of gold leaf paint and a simple white frame. She made it so easy for you guys by including a downloadable template of the art so all you have to do gild away! Insta-gorg art ready for the making.
8 ½ x 11” white cardstock paper
Thin paintbrush
Medium paintbrush
Gold leaf
Adhesive size
Gratitude template
Picture frame


step-1Download & print the Gratitude template on cardstock.

step-2Use the thin paintbrush to gently paint each letter of the yellow “gratitude” with adhesive size. Let dry until tacky, about 5-10 minutes.

step-3Gently press gold leaf sheets on the letters until all are covered. Use the larger paintbrush to press the leaf against the paper and brush off excess gold leaf.

step-4Frame your print & enjoy your handiwork!
