DIY decor ideas: Create your own silver vase.
Spread bonding agent on the area of the vase you want to cover with silver leaf. Leave for around 15 minutes, or according to the manufacturer's instructions. Lay the silver leaf on the glue and brush off excess with a dry paintbrush. When you are happy with the covering, coat the silver leaf with shellac for durability.
You will need: plain vase, silver leaf kit, small dry paintbrush, shellac (if not supplied with kit).
