Decorative plates


These are one of my favorite things I've done!
They were so easy!!! And so cheap!


Here is a picture of the whole dining room!
Supplies needed:
3 plates
(I did one white and 2 black, found at Walmart)
3/4 in. white circle labels
1 sheet of scrapbook paper
mod podge


Instructions:
I just took these circle labels and placed them on the two black plates. On one I spaced them closer and the other farther apart. I just eye balled them and did my best to make them look straight. I did a lot of adjusting. When I had them how I wanted, I put a layer of mod podge on, to give it that finished look! That is the secret!!!
And then on the white plate, I just did a circle out of the scrapbook paper and mod podged it on.....sooo easy!!!

It took a total of about 20 minutes! And I love the way they turned out!

If you haven't guessed, most of my kitchen is in black and white!



Then I had my sweet hubby mount this plate rack to the wall, which I got at Joanns on clearance!! Horrah! Add your cute plates in
and stand back and admire!
