Sharpie Art Plate for Valentine's Day

With Valentine's Day just around the corner...
my little helper and I got crafty on the weekend...
and worked some Sharpie magic on dollar store dinner plates.
We had fun!

Simple black on white turned out well...
created by colouring in the holes of a heart-shaped template.

If the plate is to be a gift...
put the name of the recipient and the date on the back.

My granddaughter got quite creative on plates she made for her parents.
They went home with her...
before I took a photo of the completed projects.

Once the plates were done to our satisfaction...
they were baked at 350°F for 30 minutes to set the ink.

They should now withstand hand-washing without fading.
Dishwashers are not recommended for sharpie-decor dishes.

You still have time.
Pick up some white dishes and have fun!

Note: Rubbing alcohol on cotton swabs cleans up any mistakes as you go along.


  1. Love this Judy! I'll be back for more to get my creative juices flowing:)
