Here’s a fun DIY to give inexpensive white dinner plates a high-end, custom look with a stenciled design and ceramic paint. Not only is this project great for the holidays, but also for weddings, anniversaries and birthdays. It’s recommended to give plates at least 24hours to drive, so try this for your next holiday dinner or event. BUT if you are going Black Friday shopping this weekend look for inexpensive dinner plates to save a bundle.
- white ovenproof plates
- food and dishwasher safe ceramic paint (or ceramic paint pen)
- masking tape (optional)
- 1.0 liner artist brush
Wash and dry plates. Position stencil in desired location on plate and hold firmly or tape into place. Lightly trace design with a pencil (Images 1 and 2).
Using a 1.0 liner brush, fill in design with ceramic paint. Ceramic paint pens are available for those less steady with a brush. If a mistake is made, it can be washed off to start over. Once completed, allow paint to dry for 24 hours before proceeding to next step.
Follow manufacturer’s instructions to bake plates and cure paint. Allow plates to cool. Tip: Design options are limitless. Paint a simple gold rim for a classic look, or monogram plates for a personalized hostess gift. Photos Courtesy of HGTV
