LET’S MAKE EASY COLORFUL PLATES!

How to make fun and colorful plates.

I wanted one more item to coordinate with the mugs, and plates were definitely going to be needed to eat the cake and egg muffins and cookies!

I took the images I had sent to Tiny Prints for the mug designs, printed them, and cut each one into a round. With the clear plastic plates stacked up in front of me, I adhered the round cut outs of these flower images onto to the back of the plate, using ModPodge. Really, this was very easy! Just be sure to center the round and then press gently to make sure there are no air bubbles.

Here are the supplies you will need:
Clear plastic plates: I used the 6″ size
A printout of the design you want to use
Mod Podge
Foam Brush
Burnisher of some kind: a credit card works fine! 

 

Here is a short slideshow with all the mugs and plates together.
Fun and colorful, right?

Let me know if you want any further information or instructions. Really, these were quick and easy to do and just a bit unique!

  2. How clever and unique to use images of your own garden to set the theme. Very pretty and colorful, Libby!

    • Cindy: Yes, it worked very well. I couldn’t quite believe it! Thanks for checking in and commenting. We just got back from a lovely night away on the coast: I’ll post on Monday (I hope!)
