Fall Decorating

Fall is here! In fact, October is speeding on away! I love Christmas best, but  also like pumpkins and other fall decorations. Last year, I tried the Pinterest project of using Sharpies to decorate plates/mugs, then baking it for an hour at 350 degrees.

If you were curious, it does work. The final result cannot be put in the dishwasher, but you can wash them off in the sink. I would only use them for decoration, or possibly on a mug that doesn’t require deep scrubbing.

I bought plates at the Dollar Store (real plates, y’all, not plastic) and a pack of Sharpies in fun colors. I finished my design, and then popped them in the oven for an hour. They look pretty nice! I even gave a few away as Christmas gifts last year.

I think they are cute on my dining room table each fall.


Happy homesteading!
