Crafting with Dollar Store Kitchen Items
I LOVE shopping in the kitchen aisle at Dollar Tree. It’s filled with common kitchen items at a fantastic price point – all waiting to be turned into a craft project.
Today I’m sharing a new Christmas craft made with a pie pan, which is a new kitchen craft supply for me.
The metal bake ware items at Dollar Tree are a favorite of mine. In the past, I’ve used them to make: a mixing bowl snowman, a pizza pan Christmas countdown clock, and even a baking sheet milk and cookies tray for Santa.
How to paint a faux enamel finish
For this craft, I decided to paint my pie pan with chalk paint. A couple of coats of white chalk paint hides the silver pie pan and creates a solid base for this craft.
Then, it’s followed up with a bit of black chalk paint to mimic the classic enamelware finish. It really is SO easy to do.
And, of course, you’ll need this free printable to add to the center of your decorative Christmas pie pan. Just click this button below to download the printable:
Video Tutorial: How to Make a Faux Enamelware Christmas Pie Pan
Watch this quick video tutorial to see how this craft came together:
- Watch the video tutorial before you begin, and let that be your visual guide for this project.
- Paint the pie pan with a 1-inch flat paintbrush and white chalk paint. Apply a first coat. Let dry, and then apply a second coat. Repeat the process on the back of the pie pan as well. Let dry completely.
- Download and print the pie pan printable on white cardstock paper. Use scissors to cut out the printable. NOTE: there are two pages in the printable. The first page has a cutting guide that matches a Dollar Tree pie pan size. The second does not have the circle outline, in case you are using a different size of pie pan. Feel free to adjust the percentage on your printer settings to print larger or smaller, if you like.
- Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the inside of the pie pan only.
- Center the cut printable over the wet Mod Podge. Use a smoothing tool to smooth down the paper.
- Use a fine point paint brush to apply black paint around the edges of the pie pan. This does not need to be perfect. In fact, rougher lines that vary in thickness will make this craft look more like authentic enamelware. Add a few small patches of black paint on the sides of the pie pan as well.
- OPTIONAL: Seal your project with a coat of Mod Podge or clear spray.
