Default Decoupage Plates

What You Need

Mod Podge, or other decoupage sealer/glue
Foam paint brush
Clear glass plate (We buy them at Dollar Tree dollar store for $1.00)
Print cotton, or poly/cotton fabric (The amount you buy depends on the diameter of the plate.)
Razor blade
Coffee can or other object with a large diameter

How To Make It

Wash and dry the plate.
Lay the plate on your fabric and move the plate around until the pattern you see through the plate looks good.
Cut out the fabric. Leave about one inch of fabric beyond the edge of the plate.
On newspaper, "paint" Mod Podge on the FRONT of the fabric. Make certain to coat the fabric well.
On another sheet of newspaper, lay the plate face down.
Spread the fabric over the back of the plate. You should pick up the plate and look through it to make sure you have the fabric positioned the way you want it.
Smooth out the bubbles in the fabric. Along the edges, smooth the fabric over the rim of the plate.
Once you have the fabric smoothed and you certain it is adhering to the rim, place the plate face down on a coffee can, or some other object with a large diameter, to dry. The Mod Podge will dry in a few hours, but if you can leave it overnight the excess fabric will be easier to trim.
Once the fabric is dry, trim the excess from the rim with the razor blade.
If you have gotten Mod Podge on the front of the plate you can scrape it off with your fingernail or rub it off with a dry, plastic dish scrubber.
The plate of course can't be submerged in water to wash it, but you can wipe off the face with a damp cloth.
