These colorful gradient plates are totally food and dishwasher safe. By using clear glass plates, you can easily paint the bottom with spray paint, but still insure that the plates remain food safe on the top. And with a few sprays of paint, they are the perfect way to make every meal a party. As always, these plates can easily be customized to your own preferences. Maybe just a light gradient spray of pink for a more ombre effect is what you would prefer? Or shades of blue only? Even a black and white mist would look amazing! So, take this technique from the tutorial and go!

Usual mini egg cups can be easily turned into bold and fun gradient planters. A little bit of experimenting with spray paint later and these adorable mini planters were done and ready to display. They are perfect for a place setting for Easter or line up a bunch as a table runner, or they can even be put on your desk for a little pop of color and greenery at work. And if you don’t have a ton of spray paint colors like me and don’t want to invest in a bunch, just stick to 1-2 colors and vary which color is on top and which is on bottom for a little variation!
