Father's Day Grill Plate

This weekend is Father's Day, and I'm so excited to celebrate Austin's second year as a Dad! I absolutely love making keepsake crafts that we can keep from year to year. This year, Lela and I made Austin a grill plate with her handprints on it. Here is how we made it-
Supplies:
Plate
Sharpies
Folk Art enamel paint

1. Wash and dry the plate with soap and water.
2. Draw the hearts on with a red Sharpie. I used the side of a large oval plate and dotted along the edges then covered my dots with hearts. This helped me get a somewhat rounded line
*Note- If you make any mistakes with your Sharpie you can use nail polish remover and Q-tip to take it off. It won't be permanent until you bake it. 

3. Paint your baby's hands with non-toxic enamel paint (I used Folk Art) then press them onto the plate. Allow to dry for 1 hour. 
4. Add whatever phrase you'd like with a black Sharpie.
5. Place in cold oven and allow to heat to 350 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes then allow to cool completely in the oven. 

I had so much fun making this project and can't wait to give it to Austin this weekend! If you make one make sure to tag me so that I can see! 

Cheers!
Mandy
