Make Gilded Reindeer Vases

It never fails to amaze me how people come up with projects that look like pieces out of high-end catalogs which start as dollar store finds. While these festive reindeer vases might look like they came from Pottery Barn or West Elm, Cheryl from Sew Can Do actually made them using dollar store glassware and gilding supplies from Martha Stewart! The gilding sheets are a bit pricey, but one package should be enough to make dozens of these vases or other projects – anywhere you want to add a little extra shine.
