Gold Leaf - Gold Painted Pressed Ferns

I pressed these ferns a few years ago and hung them in my dining room. They slowly faded and turned brown. I gave them new life and a whole new look with gold paint.
Give pressed fern artwork new life with some gold paint.
These pressed fern prints were originally a beautiful spring green but faded and turned brown over the years.
Use a small paint brush and gold craft paint and carefully paint over each fern.
Rehang your prints and enjoy.

    This is such a wonderful idea! I love that it is so simple, inexpensive and creates such a beautiful piece of art. I also love how you framed it. This really gives the art the final decorative touch.

    I love this idea and I can't wait til the ferns are up in the spring to try this. Thanks
