Design Your Own Dishes

Embellish a set of plain dishes with the help of signmaking vinyl and the patterns of your choice.

What You Need

  • Free clip art on the Internet for a pattern
  • Signmaking vinyl from a signmaking store (one that creates logos for delivery cars)
  • Crafts knife
  • Cutting mat
  • Pen
  • Graphite paper

How to Make It

  1. Place signmaking vinyl faceup on a hard surface, then put graphite paper facedown on it. Set your pattern on top of the graphite paper, trace, and cut out using the crafts knife.
  2. Remove the white backing from the signmaking paper, dip the cut vinyl in a bowl of water, and "float" the vinyl shape into place.
  3. Rub a soft cloth over the vinyl to secure it to the surface.
  4. The moisture under the vinyl will evaporate and leave the design stuck tight.
