DIY Personalized Thanksgiving Dinner Plates #Thanksgiving

We are starting a new family tradition, we are making our own holiday plates! It is such an easy and fun thing to do and they kids had a blast! We plan on making something different each year. This year we made a plate, next year we will make a cup, the next a dessert plate and go from there.
Here are all of the fun plates we made! The kids did such a great job on them!
The first thing you do is cut out a design in vinyl. Instead of taking off the excess vinyl (like you normally do) you take off the image, leaving a stencil.
Now for the fun part, letting everyone color their plates. I helped the kids put on the vinyl onto their plate and then let them go at it.
Using oil based paint markers, I painted my plate. Then when I was done, I took off the vinyl.
I then baked the paint into the plates. .
Here are all of the fun plates we made! The kids did such a great job on them!
Now we are ready for Thanksgiving dinner! For more details on how to make these, check out the full tutorial.
