Step#1 - gather your supplies. I also bought some glass bowls since I wasn't sure I'd have enough plates (I cleaned out Wal-Mart. I bought their 8" salad plates for $1 each. I bought five bowls at the local dollar store since Wally World didn't have any.) One important step I did not show...I did soak all the plates & bowls in hot water so I could easily remove the price tags. Then I ran them all through my dishwasher.
Step #2 - Turn the plate upside down. Cover the back with a good layer of decoupage glue. Work rather fast as it will dry fast.
Step #3 - Place your fabric (with the front facing the plate) on the plate. Work out all air bubbles.
Step #4 - Let the decoupage glue dry for a few minutes (about five). Then trim the excess fabric off. I also went around the entire edge of the plate & used more glue to make sure the edge was secure. I dabbed the glue in between the fabric & the edge & used my fingers to smooth it down.
Step #5 - Allow the edges for dry for a few minutes. Then turn the plate back over. Apply another layer of decoupage glue to the back. This works as a sealer.
