Are you ready for another DIY? Oh this one is so sweet–and very simple! We picked up some dark, smooth stones and gold paint at Michael’s to create the personal, handmade favors for a wedding or party.

This copper paint is oil based–so a little goes a long way. It goes on super smooth and it dries beautifully. I also picked up a bottle of gold paint.

A fine paintbrush makes getting detailed designs easy. The freeform flowers might be my favorite. Or the chevrons. And wouldn’t a cursive initial be fun–one at each place setting?

Grouped together they make a stunning, artistic display.

Place one at each table setting and let the guests take them home. They make a perfect paperweight or place on top of napkins at an outdoor dinner to keep the breeze at bay.

The gold adds a bit of ‘fancy’ don’t you think?

 Have you painted anything lately? I can’t believe what a little paint can do–I’m pretty sure paint can change the world 😉
