My mom loves polka-dot so much that I’d say about 70% of my dresses growing up were polka-dot. Naturally, I grew up hating anything with that pattern. Now though, I can really appreciate the attraction. Can anyone look at a polka-dot and not smile?
That’s how I felt about the gold polka-dot collection by Kate Spade. Maybe it’s because they’re gold and shiny? But these perfectly splattered dots all over the china and glassware collection just made me so happy.
So I had to try and DIY these, especially since it only required a gold Sharpie, or any other gold paint pen you can find at Michael’s. A solid paint pen should easily work on glass or porcelain, (if you wanted to try to polka-dot tea cups, which might just be on my list next.)
You can make the circles or dots as big or as small as you like. I went for a more cascading look and didn’t want to take them all the way up to the rim of the glass, so as to not make the glasses toxic. If you want a more pronounced dot, wait an hour or two to go over the circles again.
The trouble with having a pen like this is similar to having a bottle of spray paint. It’s very hard to try and stop yourself from running around the house and looking for more things to dot or spray 🙂
Hope you like this quick and easy DIY and give it a try.
