DIY: Sharpie Plates {eclectic style}

Feathers and Arrows.
Two common symbols of the eclectic/bohemian style.
A style that I am noticing is become more and more popular these days.

Well, even before it was an "in" thing, my sister had that style.
She has been a bit of a bohemian/hippy chick kinda girl since way back to her middle school days when her personal style was first evolving.

A while back my friend Alice from Thoughts from Alice posted some Eclectic/Bohemian Plates that she had made to put on her mantle. I immediately thought of my sister! (you can probably still find my super excited comment at the end of that post haha)

So, I figured, what they hay, if they don't turn out it wont be that much money lost (because I just bought some cheap white plates). They turned out decent, and I ended up giving them to her as part of her 18th birthday present - something she could use leaving for college.

So, here is my take on the feather/arrow designs.

I ended up doing 2 with feathers, 2 with arrows, and 2 with both feathers and arrows to bring them all together as more of a set.

Then, on the backs of the plates I wrote out different Bible verses...all having something to do with food/taste/eating, etc. My writing is sloppy, I know, but they're on the bottom anyways.
Below you can see which verses were on which plates.

So here they all are...

For anyone that hasn't heard how simple this DIY project is, it is literally doodling with a sharpie on a ceramic plate, mug, bowl, etc. Then baking them in the oven at 350 degrees for  a half hour or so.

Doesn't get much simpler!


Thank you all for stopping by!

  3. These plates are so cute! I am really digging both feathers and arrows right now too and what a cheap idea that you can customize. I think your plates turned out great! I'll be featuring this at Fridays Unfolded! Thanks for linking up. :)
