... now this is something different! I am not crazy about going all orange and black paper decor for Halloween...but love having an element of surprise, specially if it's for the table. You can take this idea and make it your own, maybe do the appetizer plates or just the main serving platters...! As for the writing, you can use  Halloween scary stories, or a passage or simply use your imagination.

For more Halloween inspiration, check out my Pinterest Halloween Board!

Here is the step by step:

You will need:
* off with plain white plates
* a porcelain 150 pen,
* some blue masking tape
* a small stencil (optional)

Cut a single piece of blue tapers paint to use as a guide to keep straight and start copying the text across the rim of the plate. Don't worry about being too neat - it should look scribbled. If you make a mistake that you don't like the look of, simply wipe it off with a wet paper towel and start over.

Using a small adhesive stencil of a raven from Martha Stewart crafts, I applied that off center and filled in with the ink. Let dry and pull off the stencil.

All that was left was allowing to dry completely for 24 hours and then baking in the oven according to the markers directions to let set.
