Simple Fall Gold-Dipped Leaf Banner

SONY DSCIt’s Friday! Okay, you’re the first to hear me say it, but; I’m finally getting a little excited for fall. And, all the fall things! So, because I’m slowly getting ready, I’ve been bringing out fall things to start decorating. Β My first decor item is this cute and super simple gold dipped leaf banner!

I’m totally obsessing with the color goldΒ lately, so I’m thinking a lot of my fall decorations will have some sort of gold in it. Hence, gold dipped leaves! You’ll probably see me sneak gold into some other fall decor projects I’ll post, too.

This cute little banner took me literally 30 minutes from start to finish, painting/drying time included. Who doesn’t love a quick project?


You will need:

  • Fake leaves (Dollar Tree!)
  • Gold spray paint
  • Twine
  • Small clothespins
  • Gold washi tape
  • Scissors


SONY DSCI started by spray painting the leaves. I used a piece of cardboard that had a flap, so I could put my leaf down where I wanted, put the flap over half, and then spray. Easy peasy, took me 5 minutes. I also spray painted the backs, just because I was putting my banner across a mirror.



While those dried, I used the gold washi tape and put pieces on one side of the clothespin. The tape was actually wide enough to do two, so I’d fit the clothespin all the way to one side, cut off the excess, and then just put that on the next clothespin.

By then the leaves were dried, and it was time to hang. I used some twine to hang them from, and finished! That may have even been less than 30 minutes, but I gave some extra time to grab a snack or something in there. πŸ™‚

SONY DSCGold is oh so pretty, and I love seeing it reflected in the mirror!

SONY DSCYou could also paint the leaves a uniform color beforehand, like white or aqua or something fun. Maybe I’ll play around a little more later.

My first fall decor of the season. Simple, quick, and cute! Unfortunately I don’t have many places to hang it, so on the mirror it stays. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend, friends! I just might decorate for fall even more over the weekend. We’ll see. πŸ™‚

What have you decorated for fall so far?
