Inspired by a several images on Pinterest of gold adorned trinkets, I have a really quick and effective DIY for you today.

I bought a set of three metallic Sharpie pens a few weeks ago from eBay and am having to hold myself back from adding silver, gold and brass accents to everything I own!
After a spot of treasure troving, I found two really sweet tea plates with a gold trim running around the edge and they were a bargain at £1 each. After less than five minutes with a Sharpie I had whipped up a polka dot decorated plate. I think I’ll create a more polished version with the second one but am quite pleased with the result of this first trial.
I’ve avoided the final step of baking in an oven because I plan to hang on the wall rather than eat my cake off it!
Have you had any fun with marker pens recently?! x
