Christmas Giveaway… Don’t miss out!

giveaway
I’m so excited to do kick off the Christmas season with a giveaway! We decided to pick out a Christmas Pintrest idea and make it. Then, give it away. The best part is that if you don’t win the giveaway, you could make it yourself!

Let me show you how it’s done.

giveaway16

I painted chalkboard paint ($3.99 at Hobby Lobby)  in the center of a plate ($2 at Dollar General) in one direction. Let it dry for 1 hour.

giveaway17

I painted a second coat in opposite direction.

giveaway18

Let it dry for 24 hours.

giveaway19

Take chalk and lightly coat the new paint.

giveaway20

Rub in the chalk with a napkin.

giveaway7

Wipe off chalk with a damp napkin.

giveaway9

Then with a pencil write the words you want on the plate.

giveaway10

With a sharpie ($2.99 at Hobby Lobby) or a paint pen trace out your words. (Because I wanted to save money, I used a silver sharpie. It dried quickly and I had to go over in a couple of times so that the black didn’t show through. If you are doing more than one, I would probably recommend investing in the paint pen.)

Then erase any pencil marks and wipe down again with a damp napkin.

To make the bow I just looped ribbon 4 times, 2 on each side, leaving one end longer.

I then tied with silver ribbon I had; you can also use wire.

giveaway15

Then wrap around the longer end and tuck it in the tied ribbon/wire. Walla you have a beautiful bow.

giveaway21

Put hot glue on the back of the bow.

giveaway22

Press and hold the bow on the side of the plate.

There you have it! Let me just say, I’m sort-of sad that I didn’t make more of these when I was making this one! I think they would make great teacher, neighbor, host or coworker gifts!

If you would like to win this one, there is just 2 things to do:

  1.  Let us know in the comments below, if you would keep the Advent Plate or who you would bless with it.
  2. LIKE us on Facebook, if you haven’t already. :)

Winner will be announced on Thursday! Good Luck!

Have a Blessed Tuesday!

  1. Super cute plate idea!! I’d have a hard time deciding if I should keep it for my kids or share it with my brother and his family.
