Note: These plates are for decoration only. Do not eat from them or put them in the dishwasher.

Materials Needed:

  • dishwashing soap
  • vinyl word decals
  • painter's tape
  • straight edge (like an old credit card)

Step 1

Wash the plates with soap and water; let dry.

Step 2

Position a decal on each plate. Use a piece of painter’s tape at the top of the decals to hold them in place. We used custom word decals (from 40 cents per letter, mywalldecals.com).

Step 3

Apply each decal according to the instructions, using the straight edge to smooth out any air bubbles.
