This craft isn’t limited to just sports—you can make a personalized plate for just about any occasion but there are a few tips to consider.

Oil-based markers can be used on your plate but not all markers adhere well to ceramic. We recommend using porcelain markers—they work on a variety of hard surfaces so it’s practically an all-in-one marker!

Sudden temperature changes can cause the plate to crack or break, so let it cool off inside the oven after baking.

Once baked, these markers are dishwasher-safe but use a non-abrasive sponge to prevent scratches.

  1. Search online for your team’s logo and print out. Create a stencil by using an X-acto knife to cut out both the colored sections of the logo and any letters.
  2. Tape stencil onto the plate, trace using a pencil then peel away.
  3. Use markers to fill in the tracing with colors that match the logo.
  4. Let plate completely dry at least 24 hours then bake 35 minutes in an oven preheated to 300 degrees.
While this craft is decorative and not considered food-safe, it’s fine for things like cupcakes, which have paper liners.
