Plates on a wall

24 Jan

Just like the movie Snakes on a Plane, “Plates on a Wall” are a non-intuitive (and sometimes scary) placement!

But UNLIKE the movie (which I never saw, and based off the reviews, hope you didn’t either) plates on a wall can rock!  Decorative plates are incredibly accessible, inexpensive, and the variety is amazing.  Pick a color scheme (greens, blues, white), a design theme (flowers, polka dots, geometric shapes) or just start collecting plates that you think are beautiful.  No matter how you do it, it looks fantastic.. and it’s your own!

Check it.

Now I know you’re thinking… well what happens when I break all the plates, attempting to hang them? Well I got you covered.

First, pick up plate hangers (with plastic tips).  These are super cheap (under $2) and you can find them at any craft store or on Amazon.

Next, you can use a huge piece of craft paper, and find your “perfect” arrangement by tracing the plates there first.  OR (and my preference)… start from the middle and hang one plate.  Then move out, up/down from there.  Remember, symmetry is not always the answer here!

Ok still too much?  No problem… try a different approach to hanging!
