Simple Gold DIY Holiday Decor Ideas

Looking for a holiday color scheme that goes beyond the standard red and green? Use some of these tips to create a classy, festive landscape for your all areas of your home.

With just a can or two of metallic gold spray paint (I used Krylon Gold Metallic Maxx), you can add a touch of gold to literally anything. Bring continuity and elegance to your holiday décor this year with our DIY gold ideas.



It's super easy to transform inexpensive dollar store finds into chic, fesitve holiday decorations. I used gold spray paint to decorate mini deer figurines for our holiday tablescape, gold leaves for a dollar store wreath, mini trees and a framed printable at our hot cocoa bar/party and even created a festive deer head for our wall. 

Pro Tip: If you're painting plastic, make sure you prime it with plastic-bond spray paint primer. This will ensure your paint sticks, and that the color looks bright and vibrant. 

Match your gold decor with any colors: green, red, or even silver for an all-out elegant winter wonderland. 

We created lots of gold décor to add some sparkle and shine around our home for the holidays and you can too with just some spray paint and imagination.
