DIY Christmas plates from inexpensive plain white dishes and a China Paint Pen.
DIY Christmas plates for kids
Can I just tell you how easy these are to make and how I love them ever so much and how I want to make some for every holiday? All you need is a porcelain pen. And an oven. And dishes. I got mine from Ikea because I love Ikea with all of my heart. These DIY Christmas plates are an easy Christmas craft kids will love.

Tips on using porcelain markers
- After you draw your design on the plate, let the plate dry for 24 hours, and bake in a 300º F oven for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before using.
- If you make a mistake, you can wipe it off immediately with the corner of a damp paper towel. Let the plate dry before continuing.
- Keep the designs simple so there is more room to fill in with food, but the design should still stand on its own without food. So for example, I drew the eyes and nose for the snowman even though raisins and a carrot can do the same job.

I wonder if food colour pens might be a fun alternative.
I think that’s a fabulous idea! Would be temporary, too, so you can use the plates for every holiday.
