Quick Make Quote Plate!
(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2013 Blog Event)
Last year I decorated THIS PLATE which has lasted very well, but it did take a while to decorate it. I had bookmarked THIS TUTORIAL about using Sharpies on Mugs, and it looked so quick and easy I thought I should try it out!
Quick Make Quote Plate:
The plate is a cheap one from The Range Home & Leisure. I drew the quote and holly leaves with black and green Sharpie pens, without any planning or sketching – if it went wrong I wiped it off with a damp piece of kitchen paper.
Then I baked it at 175 degrees Celsius (350 Fahrenheit) for 30 minutes.
On the tutorial I followed Elsie mentions that some people have said their designs washed off. I’ve given mine a good handwash and it’s staying on strong so far, but this would probably stop me giving it out as a gift, I’ll just keep this for our enjoyment!
Here’s some more ideas for decorating your own plates:

I now really really want a gold sharpie pen – I didn’t know those existed!
Use a festive quote on a project
Decorate some tableware or make a centrepiece/placecards
Write some journaling making your handwriting extra curly
