Ready to add a quick splash of color to a room, while celebrating the family name with a lovely monogram?  This project is super simple, and you most likely have all of the supplies on hand.  All you need is a plate or candle holder, a printer, and some craft paint, and you are on your way.


  • Image made in photoshop to fit plate center: Click here to download blank version
  • Super 77
  • Orange craft paint
  • Paint brush


  • Paint plate desired color:  You may want to use a coat of primer.  I used folk art Enamel (color Orange Poppy) paint and just painted the orange directly onto the black plate.  It took 2 coats.
