DIY Santa Cookie Platter




Are you ready for Christmas? I'm almost ready. I still have a little shopping left to do and many projects that I need to get finished. I recently finished a project that I have been wanting to do for quite sometime. I have linked up with Caitlin @Coffee With Caitlin to bring you a project that we have been so excited about. It is a DIY Santa Cookie Platter. Every child wants to leave a plate of cookies for Santa and a letter to go with it so why not combine the two. Don't forget to head over to Caitlin's blog to see what she has made as well.

What you will need:

  • A ceramic or glass plate (Purchased at The Dollar Tree)
  • Metallic Sharpies


So how did I do this? I took the Sharpies of my color choice and start decorating. I wanted to put a Christmas theme to it of course, so I just started out with the saying "Cookies for Santa and Carrots for the Reindeer." I then added Merry Christmas and Ho Ho Ho because those are Santa's favorite sayings. I thought this looked good but I wanted to personalize it a little bit more so in the center of the plate, I added From Raylan and Ps...I've been a very good boy. Santa had to know it was from Raylan, Right?

On The back I made sure to add the year and to put Raylan's 1st Christmas.

Once I was finished, I baked it on 350 degrees for 30 minutes so that the Sharpie would stay on. This ensures that the sharpie won't rub off on cookies or any other food that you might use, It also makes sure that it won't wash off. It is perfectly safe to eat from and it is a keepsake that will last for many years.

Please note that metallic sharpies are best to use because they really show up on dark surfaces.

I really enjoyed making this Santa Cookie Platter. I wanted a keepsake of Raylan's 1st Christmas and something that I could use time and time again. This was the perfect choice for me.

  1. I love that you added something for the reindeer, too! Maybe that will be my next project, a little bowl or something for the reindeer? :)
