Potatoes are not just for latkes—make these hand-painted, personalized ceramic platters using potato stamps. They make the perfect Chanukah gift for the grandparents (or serving dishes for your Chanukah party).


You will need:

  • Potato
  • Dreidel cookie cutter
  • Knife
  • Martha Stewart Glass Paints (Glossy)
  • Brush
  • Ceramic Plate

Directions:


  1. Cut the potato in half. Push the cookie cutter into the potato. Cut around the sides of the cookie cutter and remove the extra potato off. You should now have a dreidel shape protruding out of the potato.
  2. With your brush, paint the dreidel shaped potato and stamp onto the plate. Repeat as desired.
  3. Using the tip on your paint bottle, draw an outline around the dreidel shape. Personalize with names and design polka dots or swirls.
  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 your plate! Wrap it up as a gift or stack those oily latkes onto it. When you’re finished, just wash your plate with warm water and a soft sponge and the paint will never come off.
