I've always loved the look of antique plates but I've never had the occasion to own any. It probably has something to do with being the mom of a toddler and never having a reason to host a fancy dinner party!
Thankfully, these DIY plates are durable, doable and make every bit the statement that authentic antique chargers would make. It doesn't hurt that you made them yourself - a fact that is sure to impress all your friends.
To create these chargers you'll need two staples items from the library of DecoArt products: Decou-Page and Americana Acrylics. The Decou-Page will dry clear and give your chargers a durable finish. Just remember - Decou-Page is not intended to come in contact with food, so you'll want to use these as chargers rather than traditional plates.
Americana Acrylic paint comes in a huge selection of colors, so you can add your own colorful edging to the project.
