DIY Trinket Dish

Hi Everyone! It’s Erin again, back from The Blue Eyed Dove. This week I have a super easy craft to share with you. Something you could make for yourself,  a quick Valentine’s Day gift…or in my case gifts for my sister’s bridesmaids.

DIY Trinket Dish

My sister got engaged over Christmas {you can read more about that here}, and she wanted to do something creative to ask each of her bridesmaids to be in her wedding. She found lots of cute trinket dishes, but they cost a little more than she wanted to spend. So, it was on to Plan B…the DIY route!


  • Porcelain Dish
  • Oil Based Marker  – I used an Extra Fine Point Sharpie
  • Stencil {optional}

DIY Trinket Dish How-To


1.  Add your design onto the porcelain dish. {Optional: Use a stencil to trace your design. There are several cute, and inexpensive stencils to choose from here.}

2.  Then add 4 hearts in each corner. No stencil needed for this. As long as you have a good marker you can make nice little hearts!

{Note: If you mess up (which I did more than a few times!) use a wet paper towel to remove the marker right away – it comes off very easy when it is still wet.}

3. Let the trinket dish dry for about 20 minutes.

4. Place the trinket dish(es) on a cookie sheet, and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

That’s it!

Very easy, and very cost effective. Especially if you need to make 8 trinket dishes for bridesmaids’ gifts 🙂

  1. This is super cute! I love that you used it as a bridesmaid gift. What a great idea!

  2. Thanks, Jenna! It seems like the bridesmaids have enjoyed them too 🙂

  3. Hey Erin! I love those! Where did you get the dishes from?

    • They are from Target. They usually have a few different sizes too 😉

      • These are adorable! I searched the Target website and can’t find them. Do you remember what department they were in or what they called them? Thank you and happy crafting.

        • Thank you, Ilona! I just bought them at Target in the kitchen/dishes section. I’m not sure if they have them online.
