Good morning and Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! We are so so excited for 2016 and we hope you are too!

What better way to kick off the new year than with coffee? And because you deserve the very best, how about we make it gold? These gold coffee beans are super easy to make and only require TWO supplies! Add them to votives, use them as vase filler, or simply add them to a pretty bowl on your coffee table (get it?!).

Supplies: coffee beans, metallic spray paint, and a shoe box.

Directions:
1. Pour coffee beans into a shoe box.
2. In a well-ventilated area (preferably outside), spray the coffee beans with a layer of spray paint. Let dry.
3. After letting the first layer dry a bit (15-30 minutes depending on the weather), give the shoe box a shake to scramble the coffee beans and reveal unpainted sides. Spray another layer of paint and let dry again.
4. Repeat this process until the coffee beans are completely coated in paint!

*Be sure not to shake the box immediately after spraying the beans. This will cause them to stick together in clumps as the paint dries.

Aren’t they pretty? You can also remove any stubborn beans that successfully hid from the spray paint.

We added ours to some little votives, but they would also look great as vase filler!
