DIY poutine platter

I realized I should probably do a post about the custom poutine plate I made for Little Sis’s birthday, since everyone at her party was pretty amazed by it — and this is hard to believe, but not everyone is on Pinterest. I know! It’s shocking.
It was super-simple. I bought a plain white plate at Dollarama, grabbed a black Sharpie I already owned, and got my design flowin’ …
Little Sis is a huge lover of homemade poutine (although, unfairly, she is not a huge person). So I knew I wanted to do a joke about how poutine is a complete meal — it really is, isn’t it?

Once I drew my design — and decorated the back for fun! — I popped it in the oven at 425 degrees and baked it for 30 minutes.

When the timer went off, I turned off the heat but left the plate inside the oven to cool on its own. A few hours later, I took it out, and VOILA — permanent design!

As far as I know, this is dishwasher-safe, but I’m not sure if Little Sis has tested that yet. I’ll probably stick with hand-washing, if I make another one of these, just to play it safe.

Think of all the possibilities! I want to make a plate with D, and see what kind of design he comes up with. Maybe it would encourage him to eat all of his veggies? Maybe? Possibly?

  1. I used to already to make my home-made poutine (which was incredible!) and my boyfriend put it in the dishwasher without realizing and it is still perfect!!! Yay! Thanks again!

So what do you think?
