We all use plates every day. But because they are such everyday items we sometimes forget to think about them in terms of design and decor. So today – I want to share with you seven great ideas on projects that you can make with plates. Enjoy!
1. Make a Wreath
For starters – since it is fall – I thought I would share this project I found at Midwest Living. I really like the idea of using a plate to be your base for a cheerful wreath! You just glue the leaves on and the peel them off when your done!
2. Turn them into a 3-D Sculpture
I love this idea that Sarah @ The Thrifty Decor Chick had to create some beautiful art for her kitchen. She cut a faux pear in half and glued it to a plate to create a creative art piece. Brilliant! And beautiful!
3. Make a Unique Cake Stand
4. Hang them on the Wall
5. Put a Graphic on It
I have seen all kinds of varieties of this around blog land. A lot of people have used Cricuts or Silhouettes to cut out cute vinyl cut outs. Some of us aren’t cool enough to have those fancy machines – so I made my Bird Plates using Mod Podge and card stock.
6. Create your own Stained Glass Window
7. Turn it into a Mirror
So there you go! Seven great ideas on how to take your plates past the dinner table and into your decor. So what do you think? Have a favorite? Have you done a great plate craft of your own? If so – share it below in the comments or over on my Facebook page!
