Special Day Plates
I saw this tute and have been wanting to try it out. Fortunately, I have some crafty (and not so crafty, but their own admission) friends who were willing to help me find the supplies and market it as a Chocolate and Crafts Mom's Night.
For this project you will need:
Clear, glass plate
Acrylic paint for Glass
Dry erase marker
This is how you do it:
Buy some glass plates from Dollar Tree (we ordered them online and got them for $1 each, shipped to the store). I'm sure you can find them anywhere, but this is definitely the best deal.
Buy some Acrylic paints designated to use on glass. You will find these with the tubes of regular acrylic paint, so pay attention to get the ones for glass. They look like this:
Use your dry erase marker to write on the front of the plate and solidify your design.
Come up with a cute design and wording, turn over your plate and get to painting! (you will be writing your words backwards)
Wipe clean the front of your plate and bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. This sets the paint and makes it durable from getting scratches and scrapes on the paint.
Use to celebrate someone you love! Hand wash when done.
Here's what we came up with:
