Festive Chevron Holiday Plate

Right now at this very moment, our family is enjoying Disneyland!!

In the mean time, I thought I would share the full tutorial for my chevron spray painted holiday plate!

I think Santa would be proud!

I added a little spray paint, a little chevron, and a little ho-ho-ho!

I started with an extra plate I had at home.  Nothing too fancy.


I cut a chevron stencil out of clear contact paper.  I have tried several stenciling methods, but I always love contact paper the best!

(This time, I used clear contact paper, so it may be a little difficult to see!)

I am infamous for my "oopsey daisies."  Just to be sure my spray paint wouldn't bleed, I used masking tape to tape the edges.  It worked like a charm!

Am I the only one who holds their breath when painting over a stencil?

I gave the plate a couple of coats of red spray paint.


This is my favorite part:  Peeling away the contact paper!

Red and white chevron is the new candy cane stripe! 🙂


I found this "ho ho ho" image (ho_ho_ho_C00654_23067 in the Silhouette library) and cut it out of vinyl on my Silhouette machine.  I applied it using transfer tape.

You could also stencil your own words or image on top of the chevron.

Dear Santa, this is where you will find your cookies on Christmas Eve!

By the way, if you were really going to use this plate as a cookie plate, be sure to coat the plate with some kind of sealant!

Just a few more days until I can display this plate with my Christmas decor!

The holidays are a-coming!

Have a happy day!

  7. It looks great Alison.

    I’d love it if you could share this over on my Simply Christmas Inspiration Party at http://shabbyartboutique.blogspot.com/2011/11/inspiration-friday.html

  8. I was wondering what type of sealant I could use? I purchased a plate from someone done in a similar manor but she didn’t glaze it and I’d rather it be glazed. What should I look for? Anything out there that is food safe?

  9. Did anyone ever find a food sealant that you could use so it would be safe to eat of off?
