Personalized Plate

They other day I was feeling crafty, but I didn't have a lot of time.
I made this SUPER cute personalized plate in about 20 minutes one afternoon while Grant and Eli were napping!I started with a white plate
{that has been in my cabinet & not used for probably 5 years!}, contact paper,
black spray paint,
and my Cricut.
I used the Cricut to cut a W out of contact paper.

Then, I attached the W to the center of the white plate and spray painted the entire plate black. I put two coats of paint to make sure it was covered, and then sprayed a little bit of clear sealer on it too. The hardest & longest part of this project was waiting for the paint to dry:)

After the paint dried, I peeled up the W. I used the end of a spoon to clean up any of the edges where paint had seeped under the contact paper.

And now I have a SUPER cute W plate for my dining room!
Now I just have to figure out what to make with the three other white plates in my cabinet!
