Decorate Dollar Store Dishes

I have been eyeing up those fun face plates for a few years, trying to decide if it was worth the money to shell out for 1, then 2, and now 3 plates to entice my children to eat different food. It's not that they are over the top pricey or anything.

I had a plain white coffee mug sitting in my cabinet, begging to be decorated. I went to Michael's and purchased this porcelain paint pen:

Then I decorated both sides of the coffee mug. Because everyone needs a cute mug to drink out of.

I'm a lefty. And you be the judge- morning bed head or crazy chasing kids all day hair?

Here's the other side:

Well then it got me to thinking. I bet I could freehand a face on a plate for the kids. It might not be perfect but it would do the job!

They are already a big hit. Something about ranch and beards...

Make sure to follow the directions on the porcelain paint pen! Pin It
