Once the plate is fully covered with paint, quickly use a fork or bamboo toothpicks to create patterns on the plate.

Remember, the plate should still be wet to make this step effective. You can make stripes or checks using the fork. Let the paper plate dry completely.

Also, take a small piece of paper and write your Father’s Day message on it with a pen.

Once the plate is dry, cut out a small triangle from one end to create the neck portion of the shirt.

Attach the tie near the neck portion, leaving the rest of the tie to flap freely. Stick the message card behind the tie.
