Kids Painted Christmas Plates

This post is sponsered by Martha Stewart Crafts and Plaid Crafts, but all opinions are my own.

My kids love crafts.  They would love to do them every day if I let them.  So, they were so excited when I told them they were going to paint their own Christmas plates.  They were so easy too!  Wash, Paint, Dry.

First, I found these cute little plates in the dollar bin at Target.  $1 each.  Nice.

Wash.  To prep your plates, wash them good, removing any stickers.  Then, wipe down with alcohol to be sure there isn’t any soap reside still left on the plate.

Paint.  We used Martha Stewart Crafts.  The Glass Paint, Stencils, and Stencil Brushes.  Get the Martha Stewart Crafts line in-store at Michaels or in Plaid’s online store.

Dry and Cure.  There are 2 ways to do this.  Air Dry or Bake.

Air Dry Method: Air dry the project for 21 days before using.
Bake Method: Place your painted glassware in a cool oven. Set the oven temperature to 350ºF and bake for 30 minutes. Note: Glass must heat gradually with the oven to avoid breakage. After 30 minutes, turn the oven off; let the glass cool completely in the oven. Painted glass should heat up and cool down in the oven. Set aside for 72 hours.

These plates would look great a decorations, but we plan to use ours throughout the holidays. Once your paint is cured, it’s dishwasher safe (on the top rack.)  Enjoy!
