Blue Willow Inspired Charger Plates

Everything old is new again with these easy DIY plate chargers using Americana Acrylics and Decou-Page
 
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. 
 
Watch exactly how I assemble these chargers below:

I haven't been painting for a while due to health issues. I love the charger blue willow design. It has inspired me to get back in the game. Thank you for the opportunity.
