She showed that the first step was to take a simple paper plate and paint it in your chosen colour – Home Is Where The Art Is went for a bright yellow to imitate gold. 

Then, the TikToker reached for a pair of scissors and cut small triangle segments from the centre, ensuring she left a decent sized border around the edge.

One that’s done, it’s time to get creative and go wild with your chosen decorations.

Home Is Where The Art Is opted for a mixture of gold stars, brightly coloured gem stars  and little colourful balls, which can all be bought cheap from places like Poundland and supermarkets.
