Party Plate!

Buy a clear 12" plate. (Wal*Mart has them) Wash it and dry it.

Brush Mod Podge on the back of plate with a foam brush. Apply the fabric of your choice. Apply another coat of Mod Podge on top of fabric. Let dry.

Sand lightly with a paper bag in between coats of Mod Podge. Add another coat of Mod Podge and let dry. Sand lightly again. I usually put 3 coats of Mod Podge on.

After it is completely dry, this is what you end up with.

What do you think about this one Julie?
These are a few others I have made to sell.

The Yankees plate was a special order. My brother would be very upset with me if you all thought we liked the Yankees. We are a Mets family.
