To add a little touch of the sea to any room, this DIY gold leaf coral reef only requires a few inexpensive materials to produce seriously shiny results. A standard piece of fish tank coral reef is needed first, which is then sprayed with gold or silver spray paint for glitzy results.

Alternatively, using gold leaf and a little bit of craft glue with create an over-the-top adornment that will shine brighter than a diamond. Coral reef is a beautiful part of the ocean and many people love to incorporate the stuff into their everyday life through items for the home to jewelry.

This is a fun and easy DIY to create a big effect without hurting the environment: the coral you'll find in the pet shop is almost always fake, so it wasn't harvested in a cruel fashion.
