St. Patrick’s Décor and Rainbow Plate

I was not planning on decorating for St. Patrick’s Day this year.  Not with Easter being only two weeks afterwards.  But then last night after my son’s birthday party, I had an idea.  So I decided to make it, it was a washi tape rainbow plate.  Once I finished it, I couldn’t not decorate.  I had already bought the shamrock's for the garland, I made the bakers twine word and subway art already, so I just decided to do it.  It probably won’t last until March 17th because I might want to decorate for spring before that.  But here it is!

Here’s the plate that I made that made me want to decorate more.

This is how I made it:
I just took a normal white plate that I got from the $1 store.

Then on the diagonal, I added washi tape

I added all of the colors of the rainbow.  Thank goodness of Roy G Biv or I would have never remembered the order

Using my Cricut, I cut out some black vinyl.  I used the setting 3 and 3.  The cartridge was CRR basics

I transferred the vinyl to the plate with transfer tape.  You have to be careful so it doesn’t take up the washi tape.

And that’s it!
