Last week, I decided I wanted to make the newest craze (writing on mugs), however, I decided to use up some stuff I already had here instead. So, I kinda combined the idea of writing on mugs and used plates instead. I still plan on making some mugs too….later. Here’s my DIY: 3 tiered snack plate
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR THIS PROJECT:
3 White Glass Plates (small, medium & large)
Spray Paint Sharpie(s)
1 – Start by making whatever design you want on your plates with your sharpie(s). I went with the broken glass look and chose yellow & orange.
2 – Put plates in the oven, then turn on to 350 degrees. Let bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, turn oven off, but leave the plates in until cool. NOTE: Do not preheat the oven. Expect the color to fade a bit after baking. See \/ below.
3 – While the plates are baking, spray paint the candlesticks, if desired. Apply as many coats as you need. 4 – Time to glue it all together. Apply the glue on the bottom of the candlestick, wait a few minutes for the glue to get a little tacky. Place the glued end on the big plate. Make sure you’re centered.
5 – Apply glue to the top of the first/bottom candlestick. Allow a few minutes to get tacky and the place the medium sized plate on top. Make sure it’s centered.
6 – Repeat steps 4 and 5 for medium to small plate.
Wahlah!! You’re done.
Of course, you can choose whatever colors you want for the sharpies and the candlesticks. I let Sarah choose for us and she wanted a variety instead of two-tone.
What colors would you pick?
