Sneak Peek at this months table setting. Can you guess what the theme might be?
I started with these plain white plates. Everyone suggested I head right to the dollar store, but I found these inexpensive white ceramic dessert plates
at Walmart for only 88 cents…less than the dollar store. The ceramic plates were perfect for my craft project for this table. To create this effect, I found Martha Stewart gold nontoxic paint at Michael’s. It was important that the paint be nontoxic. I intend for the guests to be able to actually use the plates to eat from. Among my craft supplies I found the perfect foam dot paint tool to create a dotted plate. I simply sponged the dots with the paint and and let them dry for over a week.
Next I placed the painted plates in a cold oven and turned the oven on and let the oven heat up to 350 degree temperature to allow the paint to “bake” on the plates for 30 minutes… Feeling Hot, hot, hot… After the 30 minute timer, I shut the oven off, opened the door and let the plates cool. When the plates were cooled, I removed the plates and placed them to finish drying. The result is six gold dotted dessert plates, nontoxic of course!
