Easter Egg Plates

Decorate your Easter table with hand-painted Easter plates. This quick and easy Easter craft is great for the whole family.

Hand-Painted Easter Plates

I kind of feel bad for Easter. Everyone spends so much time and energy decorating for Christmas and Easter often gets short changed.   So I’ve been working this year to add some fun Easter crafts we can all use to decorate our homes for spring.  I love these Easter plates because they are so easy to make. All you need are paint markers and inexpensive small white plates.

The Easter designs on these plates were done free hand, but if you are a little less art inclined, then use a fun Easter stencil.  You can cut a stencil with a Silhouette machine, which is super easy.  Or you can use these free Easter templates.

How to Make Hand-Painted Easter Plates

To make the Easter plates you will need:

3 small white plates, washed and dried
Rubbing alcohol
Paper towels
Elmer’s Paint Markers (we used the Sherbert colors)

Paint Markers

Dampen paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe down your plates. Dry completely. This steps helps to remove any oils. Follow the directions on your paint pens to get them flowing. Use your paint pens to draw designs onto your plates.

Two color paint markers

When using multiple colors and colors that touch, allow one color to dry before adding the next.

If you make a mistake, quickly wipe away with paper towel, clean plate with alcohol and begin drawing again.

Let your plates dry completely and place onto a cookie sheet and into the oven. Heat the oven to 375 degrees and bake the plates for 30 minutes. When complete, turn off the oven and leave the plates inside to cool down.

Cute Easter Plates

When the plates have finished curing they are ready to use.  Please note that the Easter plates are hand wash only unless your paint markers say otherwise.
