DIY Game Day Dishes

Today was a fantastic day at the Flea Market and I learned a new trick! You know those plastic dishes you get at wal-mart etc ? Well some very smart/mean lady (Matthew refers to as "Dotty Bowl Heifer") at the Flea Market was selling them with vinyl polka dot stickers all over them in game day colors for $16. I asked if she sold the stickers separately and you would have thought I asked for a kidney... for FREE. So after that experience I happened upon a sticker maker and asked him to make me a sheet of vinyl Titans color polka dots (for a Wal-mart plastic bowl I already owned) and he obliged!

Now that is a super easy and cheap way for some DIY game day serving gear. Stickers are dish washer safe! You can order some from etsy HERE
Happy Tailgating!

I really do enjoy the fact that you are a thrifty shopper.. You are a very active hoarding type of shopper, but a thrifty one.... ;-)
