Good Morning my beauties!
It’s been three days now that daylight savings time ended and I don’t think my body is nearly as adjusted as I would like it to. I would just like to not feel tired super early and get out of work with sunlight still out is that too much to ask for? I hope you guys have adjusted or are at least adjusting a lot better than I am.
So it’s officially the second week of November and I’m just like freaking out about how fast time is flying! It’s almost time for Thanksgiving which btw is my FAVORITE holiday! When I think of Thanksgiving I think of family, comfort, love and of course food! Speaking of food, I love the Thanksgiving dinner table set ups! They are so gorgeous and of course with the food and colors it’s just a beautiful holiday with beautiful décor. I found some plates at Crate & Barrel that I fell in love with!
So I decided I would do a fun DIY to see if I could replicate the same plates. Well my handwriting skills are terrible so I decided to switch it up and make a gold leaf. This is so easy to do and really inexpensive!
These are the items you need:
- Plain white salad plates (got mine at Ikea for $1.00!)
- Gold permanent marker
Tape the leaf down on the plate.
With the gold marker start making dots tracing the leaf. Just make sure to make a bunch of small dots!
Take the leaf off the plate. Continue to make polka dots around your trace and start spreading them out. Keep going until you feel the plate is what you want it to look like.
As I mentioned before this is a super easy tutorial that anyone can do! If you have some old dishes you’ve been wanting to throw up or even have some plain dishes that could use some sprucing, try this out! I promise it will become a whole new dish!
I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial and hope that you can use it for our upcoming holidays! What are some of your favorite things about Thanksgiving? Let me know down below!
