DIY Festive Holiday Plates

Okay…I have to admit…this was not my original intent for the doilies. No, my original intent was some type of framed wall decoration. But somehow, in the midst of cutting and placing and setting aside for later,

 
the doilies landed underneath the the pile of plastic plates,
 
 
and an idea was born.
 
 
At a time of year that is so full of parties and family meals and cookie exchanges, plates are plentiful! And, of course, you can always grab some festive plates at the grocery store, but I just love the idea of making your own!
 
All you need is:
*clear plastic plates (I used 6 inch dessert plates)
*foil paper doilies (I used 8 inch doilies and cut out the center to fit the plates)
*spray adhesive
 
 
Simply spray the front (foil) of the doily with adhesive and stick the plate on top. The doily will show through the plate and…voila! Instant decorative (food safe) plate – perfect for all your holiday parties, cookie exchanges, neighbor gifts, or breakfast for the kids on Christmas morning.
 
p.s. It would also make the perfect cookie plate for Santa!
 

 
 
 
Thanks for taking a peek inside my Lemon Tree Dwelling!
I hope you feel right at home :)
