She Glues Fabric To The Back Of These Glass Plates. Watch When She Flips Them Over…

If you value the look of your dinnerware, then you’ll know just how pricey high-end and designer plates can get. That’s why you’ll love Lois’ DIY project here. Lois, from the blog PineRidge Hills, has come up with a way to make your own designer plates using dollar-store plates and cheap fabric. They cost a fraction of what you would find at a high-end store, plus there are so many designs out there to choose from!

To get started, Lois purchased some plates from the local dollar store. She also obtained some cotton fabric for less than a dollar each. The only other thing she needed was Modge Podge, which she already had. So, all in all, her four final products ended up costing her just under $4.

Her fabric was 100% cotton, and cost 97 cents each.

First, she applied a generous coat of Modge Podge to the backside of the plate. The mixture dries quickly, so it is important to have the fabric ready to go. Right after the application of Modge Podge, she immediately laid the fabric on top (with the top of the fabric sticking to the plate).

Using a small spatula, she smoothed the fabric into place. Then, on went another application of Modge Podge on top of the fabric.

She repeated the steps for all four plates. She placed each plate on top of a jar and let it sit to dry overnight.

The next day, once they had completely dried, she cut off the excess fabric around the plates.

They look just like the expensive designer plates you would find in stores!

To finish them off, she coated her plates with Krylon’s Make It Last! clear sealer. Lois has washed her plates with no problems.

She even used some of the extra fabric to make matching napkin rings. What a perfect dinner set! For more information on her DIY designer plates, be sure to check out her post here.

Lois had gotten the idea for this project¬†when she saw Susan’s DIY designer plates on her blog, Between Naps on the Porch. Susan, in turn, had been inspired by her friend’s Pottery Barn clock plates during a New Year’s Eve dinner party.

Susan liked the plates enough to try to buy them. They were no longer available at Pottery Barn, and they were selling for more than $200 on eBay. So, she decided to make her own.
