DIY: Santa Cookie Plates

Last year at the kids’ school’s Winter Fair, I made some cute Santa shell Christmas Tree ornaments from the shells we collected up at Portrane Beach.

This year, I agreed to make something else for the same Adult/Holiday Gifts table.  I am going to be doing up some Santa & Rudolph Cookie plates.   I bought a few 1.00 plates at Ikea the other day, but I need to get the ones with flat rim edges as I think they’ll look cuter.  Some people make these type plates with Sharpie markers, but I have a whole kit of porcelain paint markers from Ross Baker, which will set better.   After you draw on the porcelain, you set by putting in the oven on 160 for 90 minutes!   It says safe to eat off, but I’m still hesitant on that… so best use for “Santa’s Cookie”.

Anyway, here are a few plates I did up  – some are cuter than others but all in all are pretty decent for my first try.   The ones with the rims will help prevent the paint from running down and allow for them to be personalized, if requested.

Happy to report they sold at the Winter Fair.

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
