New Year's Even Plates Dollar Store Style!

 I love clock faces for New Year's Eve. So, I thought this was perfect project!
 $1 (of course) plates from the dollar store. I only needed four, but I got an          extra Plate just in case! I used a Black Sharpie and a light blue Sharpie.
 I am terrible. I don't like to measure or calculate. I rush into everything. My husband is just the opposite. Very meticulous and mathematical.
      Two light blue dots to mark the unlabelled hours. Just simple.
            A minute hand and hour hand. I went for a simple modern look.
 Whatever design you pick for what occasion it may plates in the  oven      at 250 for 20 minutes to make your drawing permanent.
Can't wait to set the table wit all the shiny blue, silver and black dealy-bops we got!

Tick tock, tick tock, it's almost New Year's Eve!!!!!!!!

****Ahhh...I washed Lucie's plate and all the color and design went running down the drain. So....Please use PORCELAIN pens!! I going to re-do mine with  Sharpie "Paint" pens. I'll let you know :)  ****
