DIY Tutorial: Giraffe Print, Spray Paint, Dirty Dishes


Well not exactly dirty dishes. Although… you could utilize old dishes for this easy peezy DIY project. I saw this nifty project on Living With Lindsay. It literally took me 3 hours from start to finish to make this masterpiece. And that was even with a toddler running around, all while unpacking from a much-needed vacay. So trust. You can get this done in probably an hour or 2 if you’re kid free for a moment.

So let’s get started.


First, wash and dry a plate of your choice.

I chose a plate that I have plenty of and would never, ever eat from.

Second, tape the entire top of plate with painters tape.

Third, choose a design. I chose a giraffe print because I love their brown-y, yellowish pattern. And wanted to do something less… trite. If you need help with choosing an animal print simply Bing or Google “animal print”, then click IMAGES.

Next, draw on your design with a Sharpie. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Trust. The end result will be so phenomenal no one will even know that the imperfections were accidents.

Then, whip out your handy dandy Xacto knife and get to cutting!! This is the most tedious step of all. Cut along the lines you’ve drawn and gently pull off the painters tape to expose the plate.

Once you’ve gotten the pattern exposed spray paint on some primer. I used Rustoleum brand spray on primer in white.

Let the primer dry for about 30 minutes to an hour.

Lastly, spray paint with a spray paint color of your choosing. I used Krylon Brushed Metallic Satin spray paint.

Let it dry for about an hour and peel off the painters tape. The end result is a beautifully decorated plate. Hang it on your wall, place it in your foyer, keep it at the kitchen table just because you did it yourself!
