Can you believe we are already almost half way through November?!?! Seriously where does time go? To help you get ready today for all those wonderful holidays to come I have teamed up with some amazingly talented ladies to bring you our Monthly Silhouette Creators Challenge. This month were thinking all about dining! Since my brain seems to already be running full steam ahead on Christmas, I made these adorable DIY Christmas Wish Plates.
Our monthly Silhouette Creators Challenge is where we make a fun craft using one of the coolest crafting items out there, a Silhouette Machine. These machines can make just about anything and they are so fun to use! Don’t believe me? Just check out all of these amazing crafts I have made using my Silhouette here. Plus this group of talented ladies never ceases to amaze me with their craftiness!

Pocketful of Posies – DIY Christmas Wish Plates
While walking through Target earlier this week I spotted the cutest Christmas Appetizer Plates and I knew I wanted some! Now I know they are already really inexpensive, but I am trying to downsize the amount of stuff I have at home. So I didn’t want to bring home more stuff. So instead I used a few things I already had around the house, including some vintage plates I picked up at the thrift store several months ago for $0.35 each. After adding a few other crafting supplies I already own, I was able to make these adorable plates in 10 minutes! How awesome is that?!?
- Silhouette Machine
- Black Permanent Vinyl
- Transfer Tape
To start my project I grabbed my computer and my Silhouette Studio software and made my design. After double checking the size of each word against my plates I sent the file to my Silhouette machine to be cut.
Once all four words were cut, I trimmed around them being sure to save all my vinyl scraps for another day. Then I weeded my design and applied my transfer tape. Next I applied each decal to my plates using the edge of a credit card to press the vinyl securely to each plate.
That’s it! I told you it was a fast and simple project! The only thing left to do was set my table using some ribbon scraps and a few sprigs of my bush. Then I sat back and enjoyed these adorable plates!
I hope you enjoy my DIY Christmas Wish Plates and much as I do! I can’t wait for December so I can leave them out on my table all the time!
If you love the look of my Christmas table then here are a few goodies that inspired my design!

Can U Eat Off Those Plates??
You can eat off of them, but I do recommend hand washing them gently. I made bread/dessert plates so they would get less use therefore be less likely to be messed up. I also chose to use permanent vinyl but for a more permanent/hardy application you can use heat transfer vinyl. This will actually melt onto the plate when heated. For a more in depth tutorial on applying heat transfer vinyl to glass check out Silhouette Schools post http://www.silhouetteschoolblog.com/2015/07/applying-heat-transfer-vinyl-on-glass.html
