Vintage Inspired DIY Floral Plate

[wpdreams_rpp id=0]

One of my “Dream Home” dreams, is to one day have a whole wall overflowing  with  gorgeous vintage plates that I’ve been collecting over the years. I’ve always adore the look and feel they bring to a then I though, “Wouldn’t it be lovely if I could make one myself?!”

And that is exactly what I did and here to show how you can too! :)
All you need is:
Mod Podge ♥ Blank Vintage Plate ($1 vintage find) ♥ Brush ♥Scissors ♥ Tissue Paper ( from the Dollar Store) ♥Printer ♥Free Floral Printables (click HERE to Download)

First, you need to print out the flowers. I printed them on Tissue Paper, because I love the thinness and transparency of it. If you have never printed on tissue paper before, you could follow this wonderful tutorial I found on YouTube!

This is what your flowers should look once you have followed the printing and cutting instruction..

Next, spread a thin layer of Mod Podge onto your clean pretty plate..

..and carefully place and smooth your floral print on top.. While the mod podge is still wet– take a slightly wet q-tip or paper towel and carefully remove excess mod podge around the edges of the flower.

And there you have it! A gorgeous vintage inspired floral plate ready to adorn any (non humid) room!
Happy Monday

    Gorgeous! Mod Podge rocks, lolol. The tissue paper tutorial is so cool! Paper jams are no fun, so it is nice to know that others have figured out a way to avoid them.

    I can’t wait to try this! Your previous vintage rose clipart would look awesome on a plate as well.

  8. FreePrettyThings says:

    Wasn’t that printing tutorial awesome! I’m addicted to it now!
