Just in time for Mother's day. This fun craft is surprisingly easy to create. You can choose a pretty fabric, glue to a clear glass plate and you've got yourself a pretty "porcelain" plate to give as a gift or keep for yourself.
Approximate Time: About an hour plus drying time.
Voila! You have a pretty "porcelain" plate. I got the clear plates at Walmart for about $1.50. You can also purchase a small plate holder or a plate hanger for displaying your plate. Here is a pictures of the some of the ones I made.

Cute idea! No one would ever guess they're covered in fabric.
You can also use edging on the plates. I used my plates for serving dry foods, like cookies and such. I handwash and dry the glass part only. Do not immerse into water. Depending on the material used, if you place them on a bright sunny window, they look pretty as the sun shines on them. Yours look beautiful.
Very nice! I think my step daughter & I will make her mom one of these for Mother's day. Great job on these!
Your plate is beautiful! My daughter recently made these for Christmas presents using pretty christmas prints, and again for valentine's day with small hearts imprinted on the material. Add a batch of cookies and you have a great gift!
