Whether you make a set of these song lyric plates for yourself or you give them as a gift, they are one of the easiest custom tableware pieces you will ever see!  Kelly from Eclectically Vintage was inspired by a plate she saw that had the words to Poe's "The Raven" written across it and decided to adapt the idea to make a gift for her hubby.  He's a Springsteen fan, so she chose to rim a plate with the lyrics to "Born to Run."  You could use any song, poem, or story to customize this idea for anyone you know!  I think they would also look fabulous as chargers underneath smaller plates, adding a punch of personality to your table setting.  [how to make a song lyric plate]

Project estimate:

  • Plate, $1
  • Porcelain pen, about $3
  • Masking tape, on hand

Total: about $4
