We like to think that these golden stones can be used in multiple ways: arrange clusters of them around the table as a centerpiece, anchor place cards, or display them as a simple decoration.

Hide these golden gems around the yard for a treasure hunt, or display as clusters for a simple, seasonal decoration. Transform everyday river stones into chunks of gold by applying gilding adhesive to the stone and let dry until clear and tacky to the touch. Wearing gloves, drape a gold leaf sheet over the stone, smoothing with your fingertips. Burnish with a soft bristle brush and continue until the stone is covered before letting dry or 24 hours.
