Decorative Chalkboard Paint Plate Mothers Day Craft

The best gifts are handmade, so be sure to remember this when you're coming up with Mother's Day gift ideas. A Decorative Chalkboard Paint Plate Mother's Day Craft is perfect for kids to make for the holiday. You can start and finish this project in an afternoon, making it a great after school or weekend afternoon project for kids. This is the perfect Mother's Day gift idea for the beloved woman who has everything. She can display the plate on a countertop or mantel all year long and appreciate the time and effort put into the piece. You can also use chalk to customize your message and leave a special greeting.

Primary TechniquePainting




  • Plate
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Glass Chalkboard Paint
  • Chalk



  1. I first cleaned the plate with rubbing alcohol and then began to apply one coat at a time of the Glass Chalkboard paint.
  2. You can see the design of the glass plate as I began to add coats of paint to it. I applied the chalkboard paint with a cosmetic sponge, about 5 coats in all.
  3. I only waited about an hour or two between coats (and you probably don’t have to wait that long, but I wanted to be sure it was dry.) Allow the plate to dry for 4 days and then bake for 30 minutes in a 325 degree oven. I allowed the project to cool with the oven door open
