Vintage Makeovers

  I don't know about you but I am REALLY kind of obsessed with vintage dishes, especially those cute little tea cups and saucers.  I don't always have an idea of what I am going to do with them or how they will even fit into the decor of my home, but I have found the perfect way to put your own style into those little treasures.

 These are the items you will need:

  • Dish of your choice (preferably one with a fun pattern on it)
  • Adhesive Foil, White Mat
  • Sparypaint
  • Templates
  • Scissors
  • Cutter
How to Create:

Prepare the baking plates by making them grease-free. Trace your pattern or template on the adhesive foil

Cut it out from the adhesive foil and paste it onto your plate. Make sure you rub the adhesive foil securely, there should be no paint running under. Spray a thin layer of paint on your plate, it is fun when the original pattern of your plate shines thorugh the paint. Allow the plates to dry and then carefully pull the adhesive foil.  The stencils used for these plates are from Ed Roth.

Have fun creating!
