finished gold-dipped plate

Gold-dipped accents add class to any party. From gold-dipped flatware to gold-dipped vases, we can’t get enough of the gold-dipped trend! But how can you achieve this decorative look without paying a ridiculous price? That’s simple — by upcycling items you already have around the house. Thanks to simple tutorials like this one, it’s easier (and more affordable) than ever to have your own gold-dipped plates that are sure to impress your guests!

supplies needed for gold-dipped plate

What You’ll Need:

  • White plates
  • Gold spray paint (We used “Krylon Metallic Gold.”)
  • Painter’s tape
  • Plastic shopping bag

How-To:

getting the plate ready and taping off a section

Step One: Wipe down the plate to remove any dust or dirt.

Step Two: Use the plastic shopping bag to cover the area you wish to keep white. Then tape it down using the painter’s tape. (We suggest leaving about ⅓ of the plate showing.)

Step Three: Spray paint the uncovered section of the plate.

Step Four: Let it dry overnight.

Step Five: Repeat steps three and four as many times as neede for complete coverage. (This step is optional. :) Maybe yours will be covered to your liking after the first coat.)

Step Six: Remove tape carefully to reveal your now gold-dipped plate.

This DIY is so simple, but looks very sophisticated. It’s the best of both worlds! For extra “wow,” make two-toned (or gold-dipped) glasses or polka dot plates, too!
