Vintage Inspired DIY Floral Plate

in DIY on May 27, 2013

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 room..so 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.
