I shared this project on A Glimpse Inside a few weeks ago and wanted to share it with you here just in case you missed it!
I wanted to show you how to create a $2 Merry Christmas Plate!
I fount this plate and "Merry Christmas" ornament at the dollar store!
Next I took the plate outside and sprayed it with water...
(I know this sounds super strange, but trust me!)
Then I got out my red spray paint and sprayed the plate...
and took a paper towel and dabbed the plate to create the "mercury glass" look on the plate!
(sorry this pic is awful... it's super hard to dab and take a pic at the same time)
I ended up with this:
After the plate was completely dry, I took it inside, got my E-6000 out and...
put the glue on the back of the Merry Christmas ornament!
Then I stuck it onto the center of the plate and put a bag of drawer pulls on it!
(you don't HAVE to use a bag of drawer pulls, anything with a little weight to it will work)
Then I ended up with this:
Oh yea, and just to let you know, the Dollar Store has some cutie ornaments this year!
