Materials Needed:

  • modge podge

Step 1

Wash and dry the plates (you can use any patterned or solid-color plate). Go to thegraphicsfairy.com/hgtv-plates and download the image you want. Print it, cut it out, and place it on the plate to check the size. Enlarge or shrink the image if necessary.

Step 2

Once the image is correctly sized, print it on an 8-1/2-inch-by-11-inch sheet of paper using a laser printer. (If you don’t have one, visit a copy store.)

Step 3

Cut out the image. Brush Mod Podge onto the back only and glue it to the plate.
