Let your kids make a decorative display plate- Great Mother's day gift for Grandma!

Did you see my post about changing my URL?

Are you in need of a mother's day gift? These are perfect and super simple. Grab a cute plate from you local store and hand your kids PERMANENT markers and let them go at it. You can trace their hands or just let them draw a pretty picture. When they are done, spray the plate with clear gloss spray paint. A pretty decoration to add to any home.

Do not eat on them if you do it this way! If you want to be able to eat off of them, use porcelain paint pens and bake them in the oven. A post about how to do this coming soon.

There are a lot of kits out there to do this with now, too! I never thought about doing it this easy way, though.

Looks like a fun idea. I think I still have the plates I made my mom in 2nd grade!
