Happy Wednesday everyone! I bet your week has been full of Winter weather. It can be fun and also a pain. But I have something to brighten up your day: an Easy Plate Gallery Wall.
It is SUPER easy and a DIY project that you can enjoy in any room.
Let’s get started with your own Easy Plate Gallery Wall.
Before you start “Booing” me, just hear me out. I hang my plates with hot glue and paper clips. I know, I have heard several people say that they would never try it. BUT, I am here to tell you that IT DOES WORK-every time.
I added a glob of hot glue. While it is still hot, I stick the large paper clip in it. Then I add another hot glue glob on top of that. Easy peasy. And it works!
As a side note-don’t you think it’s funny that this vintage fine china is made in Japan? (I thought it was humorous. hehe)
Now that all of your plates have a paper clip ready for hanging, lay them out to make a pattern or design.
It may take you a few tries. But take your time until you get it how YOU like it.
For this project I used clear tacks. I wanted to keep the holes as small as possible.
I still had to move them around a little to get them “just right”.
But, that was part of the fun in creating an Easy Plate Gallery Wall.
It took me about an hour all in all, from once I added paper clips to the plates, to hanging the last plate.
Each one of my vintage plates was purchased at the thrift store. I still have several left over. I am trying to figure out what to do with those very soon.
Make it a fabulous day filled with those you love.
