- dishwashing soap
- vinyl word decals
- painter's tape
- straight edge (like an old credit card)
Wash the plates with soap and water; let dry.
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).
Apply each decal according to the instructions, using the straight edge to smooth out any air bubbles.
