Plate Wreaths...getting started in the New Year

 Back from my trip "up Nawth" and had a great time visiting, eating and shopping!

BUT it's time to get busy and fill up my booth, out with Christmas and in with some new items.

Decided to get some plate wreaths made, mainly because the plates and "makin's" have been waiting for some time.

These are the layouts for the wreaths, later today I'll be finishing them up. The layouts may change, or not :)                    
 If you would like to know what I use to make these and how I put them together, please leave a comment.        If there is enough interest I'll post the things you need and the steps next week.

Linking up with No Minimalist Here open house Thursdays

Savvy Southern Style wow us Wednesdays

  The Vintage Farmhouse creative things Thursday

and  on Saturday with Beverly's Pink Saturday

Please pay a visit  and see what's happening !

Thank you for your visit and your sweet comments. I appreciate you and them very much.   Until next week, ya'll bee sweet and come back again.  You're always welcome!

Hi Francie,
I really REALLY love these plate wreaths!
How did you glue them together? I might like to try one of these.

Ruffles and Relics said...

I love this idea.. I have collected alot of plates lately and hate having them put away unseen. I would like to know more of how you put it together! Thanks and have a great day!

Sue in Texas said...

Awfully cute! I'll have an excuse to buy more plates.

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

This is a delightful idea!!! Very very cleaver!

I have seen this done with metal trays, but never with plates!! thanks for dropping in at my selling series. We have other malls right in Orlando that sell completely different merchandise. I wonder if it all depends on the "Vibe" of the mall? Or maybe it has something to do with that fact that we get tons of snowbirds? Anyway, I will be interest to see what my guest bloggers have to say!

Hi Francie, Your comment made me smile. I have blog sisters all over the place. You are now officially one of them.

Your wreath plates are something I have never seen before. They are so pretty and charming. Do they have a back that you glue them to or are they glued together. I bet you use that E6000 glue. That stuff is great.

It's late so I will say goodnight.
xo, Jeanne

Cute idea - thanks for sharing. I just looked around my home and don't see a place left big enough to hang one. One of these days I will finish decluttering around. here.
Thanks for stopping by and reading along - Warning, I do ramble at times. :) I will be back and check out more of your posts when have more time.
Enjoy your weekend.

Thanks for stopping by my post.
Cute idea - love the final photo w/the heart plate at the bottom of the wreath. You know, I just might have to ponder something like this. I have very limited wall space, but just maybe I should think about it.
Thanks, Jenn ... Oh yes, would have to know how to put it together...wouldn't i? ;)

Sares said...

These are beautiful! I would indeed be interested to know how you attach them. I've wanted to do this but with silver trays. It's a non stop job keeping those booths filled up! Happy Pink Saturday!

Martha said...

How clever! What a nifty idea!

Dru said...

What a unique way to display a number of plates ~ Now I'm inspired. I have some lovely red and white transfer(?)plates that I want to display for Valentines day! Thank you so much for stopping by and saying hello Francie - I do appreciate your kind words. Best, Dru

ThrifterSisters said...

What an amazingly creative idea! There is never a shortage of beautiful old plates at my local thrift stores. I will have to start picking some up.

Happy Pink Saturday,

Hi Francie, I love those plates. The plate wreath is a great idea and it looks so beautiful. I would like to know how you glued them? This is going on my must try project list. Gorgeous.

Annesphamily said...

My niece Holly made me a tiered server with cups and saucers. It is quite interesting but some of them came apart so I need to decide which glue will hold best. You like the Gorilla Epoxy? I may try it! Thanks Francie!
