Personalized Cookie/Carrot Plate for Santa and Rudolph on Christmas Eve 

 

We had our first snow day of the season, which is rather early for Western Washington which gave me time for a little crafting.  I thought about using my Cricut, but I really love to paint – it’s really relaxing.

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • lime green Acrylic Paint (all of them for hard surfaces)
  • Bright red Acrylic Paint
  • Orange Acrylic Paint
  • Brown Acrylic Paint
  • Artist Brush with fine point tip
  • Acrylic Spray Finish
  • White dinner plate from the dollar store
  • Lid of discarded tin can
  1. Alternate colors back and forth between each word and punctuation in bright red and lime green.
  2. If you are disappointed with anything erase with a paper towel or Qtip and redo.
  3. After each first coat, repeat a second coat in each color.
  4. Use the lid of a discarded tin can to trace a circle in dots for the spot intended for Santa’s Christmas cookie in brown acrylic paint.
  5. Using brown paint in the center of the circle write “For Santa”.
  6. If you are disappointed with anything erase with a paper towel or Qtip and redo.
  7. Using the orange paint, draw a carrot triangular shaped in dots.
  8. In the center of the carrot write “for” and underneath the carrot wite “Rudolph”.
  9. Using the lime green paint, draw three wavy green stem leafs for the carrot tops.
  10. In a well ventilated area, spray a even layer of clear acrylic spray over the plate to create more permanence.

I hope this helps inspire your plate for continuing that Christmas magic that all fades once we grow too old, but can be relived with our children.  🎅🎄❤
