Pen­cil & ruler 5mm thick foam­board Scalpel & cut­ting mat Rust-oleum white sur­face primer spray, £9.49, Home­base Rust-oleum Bright Cop­per metal­lic spray paint, £9.49, Home­base Mar­ble-ef­fect self­ad­he­sive vinyl, £5.13, Ama­zon

Draw a cir­cle 2cm big­ger than your din­ner plate onto the foam­board and cut this out us­ing a scalpel and cut­ting mat. Work­ing out­side on a dust­sheet, spray the top and sides with primer and leave to dry. Ap­ply a coat of the cop­per paint and leave to dry. Cut a square of vinyl big enough to cover the cir­cle. Lay the cop­per cir­cle face up and slowly stick the vinyl to the sur­face, gen­tly peel­ing off the back­ing pa­per as you go and smooth­ing out any air bubbles. Cover the whole sur­face then flip it over and trim away the ex­cess. Cut 1cm into the mar­ble on the front and fol­low this around to leave a cop­per edge.
