Horse of a Different Color Inspired Halter Plates

If you’re participating in BreyerFest this year, I hope you’re having a good weekend so far. 🐴 Today I have a set of free printables for you all! These are halter plates inspired by this year’s BreyerFest theme, Horse of a Different Color.

Each strip has tiny paint splatters in a variety of colors. (pulled from the official logo, actually πŸ˜…) I made these with decorating halters in mind, so the strips are 1/8″ wide and can be cut down to size. The borders can be left on or cut off.

I print these on plain computer paper and use a glue such as Aleene’s Tacky Glue to attach them to the ribbon. I also add a coat of Americana’s “Triple Thick” gloss glaze, which can be found at craft stores. I like how it brightens the color without smearing the ink.

Another option is to cover the pieces with clear packing tape before cutting them out, or leave them as is.

Don’t know how to make a halter? Several tutorials can be found here on YouTube!
I buy 1/8″ ribbon from craft stores or the Hairbow Center, and hardware can be found at Rio Rondo or made from wire and jump rings.

Enjoy! ❀

  3. Hi Nichelle,
    I was wondering what program you use to make the halter plates as I am keen to try and make some smaller scaled ones?
