DIY Crazy Plates

After seeing this post by censational girl I was inspired to create some monogrammed plates for myself! She does a great jog breaking down the steps in her tutorial. I did a slightly different take on it using these cheeky geometric IOMOI plates as inspiration:

Supplies I used:
*glass paint
*sticky backed foam
*clear glass plates (I found mine at Walmart for $1 each)
*paint brushes

I drew on, cut, and adhered the foam to the plates as an outline for the monogram (don't forget to do letters backwards if not symmetrical.)

Next I used bright colors to paint on the letters and I let them dry before doing the background patterns.

After the paint dried, I laid the plates upside down on a pattern and free hand painted the background design.

Here are the finished plates. I love that the paint is on the back of the plate so it never touches food!
