D.I.Y. Christmas Cookie Plate - Perfect Personalized Christmas Gift

While I was out at the thrift store this week I grabbed a few glass plates for only fifty cents. I decided that they would make great cookie plates for Christmas cookies this year. This Christmas Cookie Plate would be perfect as a gift to go with Christmas cookies for a friend.

What you will need: 

  • Clear glass plate – I highly recommend visiting the thrift store because I found mine for fifty cents each.
  • Wrapping paper – You can pick any design you want for your plate. I chose one that had penguins and another with trees as a background.
  • Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge – This is a must if you want to be able to wash and reuse your plate without it being damaged.
  • Paint Brush – I prefer foam brushes personally but you can use what you have on hand as well.
  • Scissors
  • Gold Sharpie – (Optional) This is really optional. If you want to put the family name on your plate you will want this.
What to do: 
  • Clean your plate. – Make sure to clean and dry your plate.
  • Add any writing to your plate on the back. 
  • Cover the back of your plate with mod podge. 
  • Cut out your shapes for your plate. 
  • Place them face down on the plate. 
  • Coat the plate with mod podge again. – Make sure to go over the paper portion as well.
  • Cut out a large square of your background paper. – I find that having about 3 inches bigger than the plate is best.
  • Put the square on the back of the plate. – Make sure to smooth it from the middle out. It may wrinkle a bit. Just fold the wrinkle and keep smoothing.
  • Use scissors to cut off excess paper. 
  • Put on a final coat of mod podge. 
  • Let dry for 24 hours.  
You can also do this with pictures from a trip or special moment. Keep in mind that the pictures will not bend well. You will either have to cut them or fit what you can on the flat portion of your plate.
Did you try this project? How did yours come out?
