This is a great way to preserve memories of just how little your child was at one point! You can make mugs, decorative plates, wall hangings, etc. You can find tiles at hardware stores like Lowe’s (cheap!). Hot glue a picture hanger to the back of the tile if you would like to hang it up. Check your local dollar store- they typically carry plain dishes. Just think of all the fun presents you and your child will enjoy making for family and friends!

I used FolkArt Enamel paint to create the ones you see on the blog. These are found at craft stores such as Michael’s and JoAnn’s. They run around $2 per paint so be sure to keep your eye out for those 50% off coupons. Just follow the easy directions on the back of the bottle- some require heating in the oven, air dry for days, handwash only. Make sure you protect your work surface and clean up any spills right away as the enamel paints aren’t easily going to come off when dried (or not at all).
