Parent Gift

Each of the children in my class made a one of a kind snowman plate for their parents.
  I love how each of the plates has a unique personality.

I purchased the clear plates a Walmart......for $1.50 a piece.    Then I purchased paint at Michaels.

I wash the plates and apply the surface conditioner the day before the children begin work on the plates.

Then, the children paint the plates in steps:
1.  paint white snowmen
2.  paint black hat, eyes, buttons, and arms
3.  paint orange nose, and red scarf
4.  use a  q-tip in white paint to make snowflakes 

Then, I apply the Clear Gloss Glaze.

The plates are hand wash only.  :)


  1. How Adorable! I would love it if my kid brought one of these home! This is fancier than the ornament my students are making :)

  2. oh my goodness. what a fantastic idea!! wish i had thought of this one! will definitely be using it for future parent gifts. i love it. thanks for sharing. :)

  3. Where did u find glaze and sealer. I have checked hobby lobby micheals and walmart. No luck.
