Sharpie PlatesI am Samantha from Crafty Texas Girls. I am so excited to share my fun and easy "Sharpie Plates" with you today!
Like any good crafter, I love finding 'vintage treasures'. And on a recent thrifting trip at our local Goodwill, I came across these pretty white plates. So for $6, I snatched up 4 coffee cups and 4 plates.
How to Make Your Own Sharpie PlatesInspired by a project I found via Pinterest, I decided to use my 'new' plates and a Sharpie marker to create some Christmas dishes.
mug. If you make a mistake, don't worry! Just use some fingernail polish
remover to wipe away the ink.
Finally, I baked the dishes in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Then let them cool, they will be hot!
How to Use Your Sharpie PlateWhen the holidays roll around, these plates can be used so many different ways!
-For serving Christmas breakfast
-On display in a Christmas vignette
-Or even filled with Christmas goodies and given as presents to the neighbors.
Be CreativeI loved making this funky mug. The doodle was inspired by this plate.
And my favorite dish ended up being this one, my daughter made it!
Is is December Yet?I can't wait for December to roll around so I can incorporate these plates into my Christmas decor.
