Potato Latke Crafts

Potatoes are not just for latkes on Chanukah! 
Make these hand painted ceramic personalized platters by creating potato stamps! They make the perfect Chanukah gift for Bubby and Zeidy! 

Dreidel Cookie Cutter 
Martha Stewart Glass Paints (Glossy)
Ceramic Plate 

Step 1:
Cut your potato in half. Place the cookie cutter into the potato. Cut around the sides of the cookie cutter and take the extra potato off. You should now have a dreidel shape protruding out of the potato. 

Step 2: 
With your brush paint your dreidel shape and stamp onto the plate. Repeat as desired. 

Step 3:
Using the tip on your paint, outline around the dreidel shape. Personalize with names and design polka dots or swirls around the dreidel shapes. 

Step 4: 
Bake in an oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let it cool on its own inside the oven. If you do not want to set the plate inside the oven, then let it sit out for 21 days and it will cure on its own. 

You are now ready to use you're plate! Wrap it up as a gift or stack those oily latkes onto the plate! When you're finished just wash your plate with warm water and a soft sponge and the paint will never come off! 

Hope you love making this craft as much as I loved sharing it with you!

Till next time!
