Design your own dish-ware for a special occasion

Lately, we haven’t been doing too many DIY projects. Thus, decided that we needed to get a move on and start doing some of those wonderful projects that we’ve been pinning to all of my Pinterest boards. One project that we’ve always wanted to do was painted plates for the kitchen.

Lucky for us, we’ve had these white plates that have been sitting around just waiting to be painted.  The first thing we did was to soak the plates in some hot water and vinegar. Next, we just wiped them down with a paper towel and had clean and clear plates. Wallah! Ready to start making some DIY Painted Kitchen Plates.

This time we needed some plates for the Cinco de Mayo Party that we have this early May. For the party we have are having a bright orange and pink theme. To neutralise it we decided to paint some green cactus.

Materials |

  • Plates ( It can be glass or white ceramic plates like us
  • Acrylic Paint (Use any brand paint that is suited for ceramics painting)
  • Paint brushes 
  • Printer/Paper
  • Clear coat spray (optional)
  • Vinegar (optional)
  • Water (optional)

Method |

After cleaning the plates with vinegar, you can start creating this amazing plate.

For us, we start by painting the base shape of the cactus and let it dry. After two layers of paint let it dry for 5 hours. Next, you can add in the needle details we another colour.

After letting it dry completely, spray 2 coat of clear coat spray.

Hope you like them! Share with us your version! Take a photo of yours, send us an email, tag us on Instagram, tweet us, anything. We love to see yours!

xoxo, Joe
