Monogrammed Plate

At a recent trip to Hobby Lobby I spotted small squarish monogrammed plates for $9.99. Of course they were out of the letter "S". Oh well I thought and ended up at Goodwill and their 50% off everything day and behind a woman with 3, yes 3, carts full of jeans which came to a total of $800 then half of for $400!! Wow, it was crazy in there that day! But while there I looked at the dishes and spotted this little plate and loved the details of it...

So I whip out a black paint marker and went to town 

I used my Cricut and cut out a stencil then filled it in

Here is how it turned out

I had found a few months ago a plate holder $2 at Burke's Outlet it was white so I painted it black

For $2.25 I have a nice addition to the kitchen!

My motto is there is always a cheaper way. It may not present itself that very day but eventually it will!
