gold rush


I recently created this over-the-top gold backdrop for the Nashville Humane Association's Dinner with your Dog night, hosted by the country beauty queen, Kellie Pickler!

Though time intensive, the backdrop was super easy.  All you need is gold foil tissue paper (I got this at Michael's in their wrapping aisle), muslin or other lightweight fabric, a hot glue gun and scissors!  I cut my tissue paper in strips 4" high and fringed them with the scissors.  Then, using the hot glue gun, start from the bottom and work your way up, layering the fringe.  That's it!
