Fingerprint Christmas Plate Gifts Kids Can Make For Grandparents Or Teachers

If you’re looking for a handmade present idea that your kids can make, this fingerprint Christmas lights plate is so easy to make and it looks amazing! It only require a few supplies that you can find at your craft store or online.

Because the paint and marker are specially for porcelain and you can’t use them on any other surfaces, you won’t probably get another chance this year to create with them.

So, instead of waiting for next Christmas to make new plate gifts, I would suggest that you plan on creating several fingerprint Christmas plates at once. Or maybe mix it up with fingerprint Christmas mugs and bowls.

Read the instructions to see how you can make them dishwasher safe.
