Glam Up Baby Gourds With Copper Leaf

I always tell myself that mini pumpkins and gourds are multi-holiday decor and last for both Halloween and Thanksgiving. Each year I buy a few bowlfuls to sit on my dining table and kitchen counter. They sit and look, well, seasonal, but this year I'm already tired of them. Maybe I need a little copper leaf in my life.

Martha Stewart has probably applied leafing to every surface known to man at this point in time and although most of us are familiar with gold and silver leafing, bronze leafing is out there too. Its darker tone is perfect for a dining table without giving off too much bling (don't want to blind yourself while you're eating), while still feeling festive.

It's a great way to make your Halloween or seasonal centerpieces take on new life and last a little longer. Want to see how they're made?
