My son is 7 going on 16. He wants to make all the decisions and gets extremely frustrated when things don’t always go his way. So on nights when I am making a meal that I know my picky eater will not eat more than 2 bites, I let him chose what he wants for dinner. You would think he won the lottery or something!
So I decided to make dinner time a little more fun by letting him make his own personlized plate. Plus it’s such a cute and fun keepsake. The plate turned out so cute, I’m going to have him make a few more to give to alll his grandparents. They will think it’s the most adorable gift!
This DIY Hand Painted Plate can be given as a keepsake gift and cost only $5! You can’t beat that price.
How to make a DIY hand painted plate
- Ceramic plate
- Acrylic paint (Be sure to use non-toxic, food safe paint)
- Wash and dry plate.
- Using the paintbrush, paint designs onto the plate.
- Set plate on baking pan.
- Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes at 250 degrees.
- Take the plate out of the oven and set aside until completely cool.
- Hand wash plate.
You can pick up the plates at the Dollar Store and the rest of the supplies I picked up at Amazon for a steal. I love making crafts from ordinary Dollar Store goods into something special and creative.
These plates are great keepsakes and they will love to show everyone what they created! Decorative plates are great for entertaining, adding fun decor to your space or to give as gifts.
