Gilded Honeycomb Pitcher {Easter Crafts and Decor Showcase}

Gilded Honeycomb Pitcher with vintage bird

Have you seen all of the touches of gold and gilding that are coming back into vogue?  I remember years ago doing some gilding with those little sheets of gold leaf.  I actually just donated my ‘stuff’ a year or so ago and now here I am buying it again ~ don’t you just love when that happens?  I try so hard to de-hoard and then I end up re-hoarding.  

Gilded-Honeycomb-Pitcher-with-ranunculusI started with a white pitcher (new but it resembles ironstone) and some artificial ranunculus.

For this project I purchased the gilding sheets, adhesive, brushes {I’m not sure I needed these expensive Martha Stewart brushes but they were fluffy…sooooo} and a honeycomb stencil.  I’m excited to try this stencil on my chalkboard wall ~ If it turns out I’ll post some pics on instagram and if it’s really impressive 😉 it will get its own post.  

Gilded Honeycomb Pitcher_MG_6205I wrapped the honeycomb stencil around my pitcher {first I wiped down the pitcher with a cotton ball dipped in alcohol}.  I used painter’s tape to hold the stencil in place.  Next, I brushed on some adhesive.  Since this surface is NOT smooth (it had a curve to it) this was a little trickier than I had anticipated but it did work.  Next, I followed the directions for how to apply the gold leaf sheets ~ it was easy but I didn’t get a picture…my bad! If I do it again I’ll take some pics and add them to this post.

Gilded Honeycomb Pitcher ranunculusI really like the way this turned out ~ it was a little hard to get a picture that showed the depth of the gold without too much shine but I tried!


And there you have it ~ a Gilded Honeycomb Pitcher for your Easter Table and Spring vignettes!

The gold with the white ceramic is a beautiful combination. Would make really pretty title coasters, too.

Mary Beth, This is so cool! The gold against the white is lovely and I think that because the edges of the pitcher weren't smooth really makes the honeycomb more interesting.
