Hello lovelies! It's Danielle from Blissful and Domestic. I am here sharing a fun new tutorial for Halloween. I love Halloween, not the scary, I am gonna pee in my pants Halloween, but the fun glittery cutesy Halloween. Beacuse of this, my decorating reflects a more fun, playful Halloween. I love to decorate my house and enjoy this holiday with my kids. One way I love to decorate is with plates. I love that you can use them all year round, depending on how you jazz them up or down. Today I am going to share how I jazzed up some plates, for my Halloween decorating on a budget.
I found two plastic plates, at Target, for about $1.00 each. They were on clearance. Oh how I love Clearance at Target. We are in love always.
I took my plates and went to the dollar section of Target's scrapbooking section. Another love of mine. I got a pack of Glitter paper (2 sheets in the pack) for .99 cents and chipboard letters. Also for .99 cents. This worked perfectly for my two plates.
I traced my plates on the back of my paper. This gave me a better idea of the size of the plate. I am a visual person, but quite lame when it comes to using rulers and measuring. This is my way of measuring. If you are skilled with a ruler, all the more power to you, I am just not in that boat.
I cut my square about 2 inches in from where I had traced my plate.
I hot glued it down and added some rosettes.
This plate I did for Bowdabra
And this was one for me
Here is how they look in my home. Excuse the crooked pictures and messy coat rack, so not blog worthy. I have no clue what is up with that.
And there you have it. A simple project to help bring
a little more Halloween fun into your home.
