Make Your Own Designer Dinner Plates In Just A Few Steps

There are few things more sophisticated than an elegant dining room table setting. Designer dinnerware is outrageously expensive and not many of us have room in our budgets to buy fancy china.

Luckily, there’s a simple way to create your very own stylish dinner plate!

First, you need some fabric in a design of your choosing.

You’ll also need a special clear-drying glue called Mod Podge – available at any craft store – and a see-through glass plates or bowl.

Turn the plates upside down and use the mod podge to glue a square of fabric securely to the bottom of each plate.

Use jars or small bowls to elevate the plates, and leave them to dry overnight.

Then, cut the excess fabric from around the edges, and turn your plates back over.

There’s one more step before you’re through: coat each plate with a clear sealer like the one below. This will ensure that your plates can be washed and reused over and over again.

If you have leftover fabric, you can even make a matching napkin ring to pull together your table’s chic new look!
