What you will need to make Halloween Silhouette Plates
- White Plates (can easily be found at the dollar store)
- Black Paint Marker (or acrylic paint)
Yes, all you need is white plates and black paint.
I used a paint marker because I had one already on hand.
You can tell I used a marker-style paint on mine if it hits the light just right but that doesn't really bother me. If you want it completely opaque then I would suggest just painting it with a brush and acrylics.
How to make Halloween Silhouette Plates
I picked up the white plates at Dollar Tree so the entire two plates cost me $2.68 total. How is that for a cheap but fun fall decoration?
If you don't have the paint on hand it may cost you a few extra dollars but still a very inexpensive DIY idea.
You could even search for some white plates at the thrift store. Sometimes you can pick them up for .50 a plate.
I printed and cut out my designs and then traced them lightly on the plate with a pencil.
After I got the design on the plate I started painting it on with the paint marker.
There are all sorts of great designs on the Internet like pumpkins, owls, witches, bats, cats, etc. Just find your favorite design and get to printing.
I even checked to see if there were some Christmas designs that would look good on a silhouette plate. I'm thinking a nativity scene on a set of 3 would be awesome.
Some other ideas to create these silhouette plates would be to use black vinyl, Halloween and/or Fall decals, or spray painting the plates black and the silhouette would be white (reverse effect).
If you have a Cricut or silhouette maker at home then this project would be even easier as you can just print on the desired decal and attach it directly to the plate.
