DIY Decor plates for Kitchen

Does your kitchen has any form of art displayed like a wall art , decor item or any other fancy things ? Oh ! you are asking me , Is kitchen a place to display all those items ?? Well ! Yes, who said you should not ?Today I will show you a simple DIY to spruce up your kitchen.

Materials Required :
Plastic Plates
White Spray paint 
Colour prints
Mod podge
Sticky back Industrial strength Velcro

Step 1: I was searching for a plain white plastic plates but I couldn't find .So, I got a little grayish colour plates and spray painted them.You can also use white ceramic plates but you have to use plate hangers to hang them on the wall plus you have use nails on the wall to hang the plates .I don't want to use nails on the wall so I chose plastic plates and velcro.
Step 2: Allow the paint to dry if you are spray painting the plates like me. Print some colorful images of fruits or vegetables or anything which you like to hang in your kitchen. Use laser prints for this as you are going to use mod podge.(Ink jet prints are not mod podge friendly ).Use your local library printer in case you don't have one.I printed my images from .

Step 3: Use scissors and trim the images as desired. Apply mod podge on the back of the print and paste it to the plate. Let it dry .Have any doubts on how to apply mod podge ?Amy from Mod podge rocks discusses everything you need to know about Mod podge , here .

Step 4: Once it is dry, apply 2 to 3 coats of mod podge over the print to seal it.Attach velcro to the back of the plates to hang it in the wall. Voila !! Now you have a beautiful kitchen decor !! I made these plates to display above my new kitchen cabinet , Oh ! I mean newly painted kitchen cabinet. If you missed the post, click here to see the makeover .

  13. Your fall kitchen decor looks great. I agree with you about not clearing everything out. I used to do that, too. It's so much easier to just add in some fall pieces. Yours looks cozy and inviting. Thanks for sharing with us at Snickerdoodle. GarageDoorRepairEncinoCA
