Today’s DIY is almost so easy, I hesitate to even call it a project. I was able to make it, style it, photograph it, and post this in just around an hour, if that gives you a better idea of how incredibly simple it is. Last year I shared, what is still one of my favorite DIYs to make, this DIY Personalized Catchall using only a small dish, Sharpie, and gold leaf pen. So, I guess this is just the 2.0 version of that!
- Small bowl (I found this one at Target for $1.99!)
- Sharpie Permanent Marker
- Krylon 18 kt. Gold Leafing Pen
Like the Personalized Catchall, make sure you wipe down your dish with some rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball — or you can just give it a quick rinse with some soap and water. Once clean, just take to it with the Sharpie! There’s really no method to the madness, just make spots. It’s kind of therapeutic…
Continue making spots until the entire dish is covered. To ensure that your masterful design doesn’t rub off with time, bake your dish in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes to seal it. Once the dish has cooled, simply trace the rim with the gold leaf pen.
Let the gold completely dry, and you’re ready to start filling your dish with baubles! Like the catchall, these little dishes make great gifts for any occasion. Happy crafting!
