Making a Christmas Cookie Plate

I made these plates a few years ago, and had this material leftover from my dog’s Christmas kerchiefs, so thought I’d revisit making a Christmas cookie plate. I bought my plate at the Dollar Tree (for a $1)…It’s about 10 1/2″ across.

You’ll need 1/3 yard of fabric for a 10 1/2″ plate. I bought mine at Joanns and here’s a link to it on their website. You’ll also need dishwasher safe Mod Podge and a foam brush. I buy my brushes at the Dollar Tree. Here is the link to the Mod Podge at Joanns.

I always recommend you price shop for any product I use on my channel, as I only give you links so you know where I bought the product.

Clean your plate with rubbing alcohol to remove any smudges or fingerprints, then put a good coat of Mod Podge on the back of the plate. Lay the fabric face down on the back of the plate, making sure you cover the edges of the plate really well with fabric. I like to flip the plate over to see if there are any spots where you see a lot of white, as that means the plate and the Mod Podge haven’t adhered together there. Rub the spot with your finger and the spot should go away. You can trim the excess fabric off now, and do this by puttiing your scissors on the edge of the plate and angle the scissors away from the edge. Coat the back of the fabric with another coat of Mod Podge (while the first coat is still wet) and make sure you really cover the edges with Mod Podge. If the edges are adhering, put more Mod Podge UNDER the fabric. Then brush on top of the fabric to make the edges adhere. When this coat is dry (I usually wait over night) add another coat. I trim around the edges after each coat to remove any frayed fabric or excess Mod Podge. After three coats, it is done.
