With the holidays quickly approaching, many of you may be scrambling to find the perfect gift. Personally, we think the best gifts are the homemade gifts. These plates are perfect, and very easy, to make for just about anyone!
you will need:
plates (preferably plain on the bottom)
Simply pick out the design you would like to have on your plate. You may choose to freehand or use a stencil. Draw it out with the sharpie of your choice and let it completely dry. Bake it in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes. When done, let the plates completely cool off before handling them. Voila!
Today we celebrate our 100th post on fox + gypsy! We wanted to share some of our favorite images that we didn't use in our posts. Thank you all for your support, we hope you continue to follow us on our adventures.
Today, as we spend time with our families and friends, we allow ourselves to forget the things that won't matter tomorrow or next year and focus on the things that are truly important now. Because it is the simple things in life that matter most, and it is the simple things that make us happy.
One of my favorite colors is gold, as seen here and here, and during the holiday season it has become more prevalent in my wardrobe and beauty routines. Here is a look I am coveting at the moment.
What you'll need:
gold leaf- available at craft stores like Michael's
The best way to start for this manicure is with clean, dry hands. Gold leaf is very fragile and will crumble easily, so this is also where the qtips and tweezer come in handy. The gold leaf can be cut into shapes or applied as is. With tweezers apply the gold leaf where you'd like it and run the qtip over to smooth it to your nail. I think it works best when your nails are still tacky from your base coat. To finish, apply with topcoat.
