DIY Santa Plate and Mug

Sharing is caring!

Hey guys! Today I am excited to share this DIY Santa Plate & Cup Set that I put together the other day! In every home on Christmas Eve we put out cookies and milk, so why not do it on a cute and classy plate and up set?

I fell in love with the new matte black dishes from the Hearth and Hand line at Target! I picked up a simple plate and mug!

I knew I wanted to keep the look simple and classy, so I headed over to Cricut Design Space to get designing! Once I got in there and saw this Santa Baby design that was already in design space I knew I didn’t need to design anything myself! I loved it! So, I saved myself the time and went with it! 

Design Space really is so great and they have such amazing stuff already designed in there! There’s not always a need to design things yourself! And if you find a design you like, you can usually customize their designs to be exactly what you want!

Because these designs weren’t huge, all I did was peel off the backing of the design and slowly applied the vinyl where I wanted it and used the scraper tool and my fingers to push the design onto the plate and mug strongly.
