Pottery Barn is one of my favorite stores. I saw these beautiful mercury votive glass while browsing their holiday items. They were perfect for creating a stunning DIY shimmering Hanukkiah (Hanukkah Menorah) display, except I didn't like the price tag — $26.50 for a set of three. That would be $79.5 + tax.
It seemed to me that if I sticked some gold leaves onto some shot glass or jars, it would achieve the same impressive look that I wanted but cost much less. I've never handled a gold leaf project before. My googled result not only led me to a gold leaf instruction page but it also included a magnificent DIY Hanukkiah. Look how gorgeous it is! The light was dancing around radianting a festive spirit.
If you are crafty and have already worked with gold leaf before, this is a no-brainer project for you. Nonetheless, you can follow Aunt Peaches detailed instructions with pictures.
