DIY: Fun Festive Holiday Dinner Plates

It’s holiday crunch time, prep, prepare and decorate the house.
We have very plain plates, white, black, yellow and clear glass, none of which are remotely festive. Our holiday table needed to be more merry and bright, it was looking a bit dull and boring. I one of those who have no china passed down from Grandma, no holiday traditions used for generations and no holiday art made by the kids at made at school, so we decided to brighten up our table using scissor, some glue, our clear glass dinner plates and holiday gift wrap paper from Hallmark Gold Crown.

Each of the kids pick out their Hallmark wrapping paper and chose an animal to adorn their holiday plate.
After a few hours of cutting, a lot of glue, one or two wrapping paper sword fights and barton twirling competition, all in good fun and we now have some awesome plates to use for our next holiday meal!
 I think my momma bird plate turned out pretty good. All the colors match our decor perfectly and layer nicely with our exciting dinner plates, the kids are so excite to use theirs!

Watch our video link for the full DIY Holiday Dinner Plate instruction. It’s pretty easy, just a some cutting and pasting, even the kiddos can join in on the fun! Hallmark has so many wonderful gifts for the holidays, we couldn’t help but picked up a couple gift items for friends.

Step by step DIY video accompanied with some great Reggae music and cute kids.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
Many thanks to Hallmark Gold Crown for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging me to try my more creative side using gift wrap.
