This is probably one of my favorite projects to make since I’m always finding terrific glass dishes that need sprucing up a bit. A little lace, a little spray paint and you’ve got something amazing. Add some adhesive felt on the back if you’re going to hang plates as wall decor, or use it as a pretty patterned tray.
- Krylon Fusion Spray Paint (It’s the best for this project!)
- Newspaper for your workspace
- Lace in different patterns
- Spray Adhesive (love the stuff!)
- Krylon Clear Coat
- Sticky felt to protect the back if it’s just decorative.
Step 1. Cut a piece of lace larger than your plate so that it covers all the edges of the plate.
Step 2. Spray your lace with the Spray Adhesive and stick it to the back of the glass plate so that all of the lace is sticking to the plate.
Step 3. Lightly spray paint over the entire plate. Gently remove the lace after the paint is dry.
Step 4. Spray the entire back of the plate with another color of spray paint. Choose contrasting colors for the most impact.
Step 5. Spray several coats of clear coat on the BACK of the plate to protect the spray paint. Wait 10 minutes in between each coat.
