Halloween Plate Craft!

I recently learned at church how to make a decorative plate (this one for Halloween!) that requires only the following items:

A plain glass plate Fabric of your choosing
Mod Podge
sponge
styrofoam bowl
Dark pen
Scissors

1. Start with a plain glass plate...You can get these at the Dollar Store.

And fabric of your choosing...Mine is Halloween themed.

2. Place the plate face down on the fabric, centered over the area you would like to attache to the dish.

3. Use a dark pen or sharpie to draw around the dish, so that you have a circular piece of fabric.

4. Cut the fabric out.

5. Now, with the bowl still face down, use a sponge to apply a good layer of Mod Podge. Do not allow the Modge Podge to dry (here I am using different fabric - I made several of these plates).

6. Immediately apply the circle of fabric, right side down, to the back of the plate, beginning at the center and working outwards.

7. Leave the plate to dry.

Viola!
You can make these plates to celebrate any holiday.  Some of my friends did these on Christmas themed fabric...  They are fun and don't take much time at all.

Enjoy!

and even college them. I made one for my sister with her wedding picture (printed on regular paper, not photo paper). Then, since the picture didn't cover the plate, I just grabbed some tissue paper and layered it on until it was as solid as I wanted it. Turned out great. You just need to be careful not to get the paper too wet with the modge podge or it will tear.Happy crafting!!
