We’;d like to introduce Kathleen, the DIYer and blogger behind Dreaming of DIY. Kathleen had been trying to find accent plates to use on her table during non-holiday times.? She wanted something that had a pop of color and a pretty Paisley pattern but didn’;t cost her a fortune.? After searching high and low for orange plates with a paisley pattern, her DIY light bulb went off.? Kathleen decided to make them herself using a stencil and colored sharpies.?? She had our beautiful Paisley Allover Stencil from a previous project and decided to reuse it for this one.? Here’;s how it all turned out.

So pretty! Now that you’;ve fallen for this fantastic idea, we’;re going to give you the scoop on how to recreate it (this project comes from Dreaming of DIY):

1. Gather Materials: Start the stencil project by gathering all of the materials listed above.

2. Secure The Stencil: Clean the plate really well before you begin stenciling.? Then position the stencil design on the plate and secure it in place using painter’;s tape.

3. Start Tracing the Stencil: After you place the stencil on the plate, you’;re ready to begin stenciling!? Use a colored Sharpie to trace the design onto the plate.?? In the image below, Kathleen used an orange Sharpie to outline the paisley pattern.

4. Fill in the Pattern:? Once the stencil has been outlined, now it’;s time to fill in the pattern with the Sharpie.

5. Heat Set the Design: Set your oven for 350 degrees and bake them for 30 minutes.? This will make the design permanent so that you can eat off of them.

Haven’;t had enough stenciling fun?:
