DIY Gold Striped Salt & Pepper Shakers

Salt and pepper shaker sets are one of those table accessories that can be easily customized for any party theme or holiday. This pretty set would look lovely on a fancy appetizer bar or on a casual kitchen table.

Here's what you'll need:

Wash the shakers in hot water and soap. Let dry. Tape off horizontal and vertical stripes on the shakers. The tape is just a guide for the stripes so it doesn't need to be perfect.

Shake up the gold leaf. In a well ventilated area (this stuff is stinky!) carefully paint the stripes on the shakers, following in between the guides. I got the best results by dipping the brush in the paint and slowly dragging it across the surface, instead of really brushing it on. Add another coat to any light spots. Let dry.

Remove the tape guides. Cover the holes on the top of the shakers with a small piece of washi tape and spray with a light coat of clear sealer. Let dry.

I like how these shakers go together but aren't identical. Play around with alternating thick and thin stripes, diagonal stripes, or even dots (like these gold confetti dishes). This liquid gold leaf is so fun to work with, I'm already thinking a bunch of other diy ideas that could use a little gold sparkle.
