So this weekend, I was being spontaneous and decided to do a fun little DIY project. As you know, I don’t do DIY here very often. However, I got inspired by a pin recently using dot stickers to make polka dot print (oh, the power of Pinterest), so I decided to apply the same concept on an appetizer plate to make what I called a “DIY Polka Dot Jewelry Dish” – kinda proud of myself, can’t you tell? :)
What I’m most excited about this DIY is that it will literally cost you less than 5 bucks and no more than 15 minutes to make. Seriously, do you think I can handle anything more intensive? I was even able to do this while Hayden napped, so it was the perfect little project for me. I’m so happy that it turned out well, because you know, all I want to do is share the good stuff with you. So here it goes, are you ready? :)
WHAT YOU NEED: Small Platter from CB2, $1.95 each. Black Coding Stickers, $2.00. (I found mine through Maido, a Japanese stationary store in the city, but you can find similar ones from Amazon or Office Depot. I chose the smallest dots possible but you can get bigger dots if you like.)
STEP 1: Align your plate to the ruler starting at the corner and place a sticker every one inch.
STEP 2: After the first line, move your plate 1/2 inch over to the right on the ruler. Then estimate 1/2 inch down and start placing sticker every one inch for the second line.
STEP 3: Repeat step 1-2 until the whole plate is complete.
And Voila! You got yourself a new adorable jewelry dish! Isn’t it sweet? Oh, and if you want to add colors, try using gold, metallic or neon coding dots. I think the result will turn out to be just as amazing!
