After some recent posts I received a few e-mails and comments from readers who spotted the layered plates in the kitchen, wondering how I attached them. So today I thought I would share how I put them together for hanging on the wall.
Layering the plates just sort of happened by accident. After things got moved around in the dining room and the plates came down, I thought they would look nice in the kitchen. I had lots of plates to work with, but not enough wall space. I couldn’t decide which to use and when I hung just the single plates on the wall, it looked sort of “blah”. So I started to play around with them and layering and I really liked how it added dimension and interest to the wall. Oh and the bird nest is hiding a chip in the plate.
OK, so here is my quick and easy layered plate “how to”.
Step 1: Find two plates in different sizes that you think look good together.
Step 2: Attach and center a plate hanger to each plate. I found these at Lowe’s and they were just a few dollars each. Make sure the plate hangers are the right size for each plate, if they are too loose they will slide and fall off. Also, when assembling do so on a soft surface just in case. I used inexpensive plates from Home Goods so I was not too worried, but it’s no fun to break a plate.
Step 3: Turn the plates over and use ribbon of your choice to attach the plate hangers together and tie ribbon in a secure knot.
Step 4: Gently flip smaller plate on top of larger plate and then hang on the wall with a hook appropriate for the weight of the plates.
This is what it will look like from the top…
and this is what it will look like from the front.
So, if you have some pretty plates and a little wall space, hope you will give it a try. It’s quick, easy and budget friendly decorating too!
