Custom Holiday Charger Plates With Fabric

5 Materials
5 Minutes

Tired of spending a lot of money on charger plates? Here is an inexpensive & amazing way to create custom holiday charger plates from fabric! This is an easy craft with big impact. It takes about 10 minutes, and will spice up your holiday table into a gorgeous masterpiece.

Clean plastic free of any lint that has accumulated.

Place plate upside down on top of fabric.

Using the white colored pencil, trace around the diameter of the plate, leaving a 1-inch allowance. With the scissors, cut along white line.

Before spraying with the spray mount, make sure you are in a well-ventilated area. If you are spraying inside, I recommend using a larger sized box as a backdrop, and placing the plate(s) in the box to spray.

Spray the front of the plate in even strokes, fully covering the plate with adhesive.

Place the material, right side up, on the plate. Carefully rub the fabric, getting out all wrinkles and bubbles, if any, creating a smooth surface.

Once the fabric is smoothed out, turn plate over. With the scissors, cut along the rim of the plate, to cut off the excess fabric

Let dry in single layers before stacking.

    Do you think you could pull the fabric off and change it for a different occasion?

    To help prevent fraying of the cut edge around the circumference, I would suggest applying Fray Check, either with a narrow paintbrush, or with your finger.

    To achieve a more even close-cut edge, instead of using scissors, I would recommend using a rotary cutter.
