I love being influenced by my travels and I’ve recently finished giving the hallway a lovely new lick of paint. In Greece, I’ve seen plates used a lot as a way of decorating a space and it got me thinking what a fab way of adding colour. And I really like the idea of decorating plates with my own style and pattern, so here’s my how to – how to decorate a plate.
I really wanted to use yellow as my pop of colour on the plates and it’s also one of my favourite colours too. This is also a really easy how to and this is down to the spray paint I used which gives a really nice finish.
What you’ll need
- 1 16cm white side plate
- Frogtape masking tape
- Montana spray paint
- A ruler
- A pencil
Take the masking tape and decide on what kind of pattern you would like to do. I really love frogtape masking tape, as it helps keep the lines sharp. I decided on a checkerboard look, which was easy with cutting the masking tape into squares.
I also used a ruler and a pencil to make a straight line across the plate, I then took some of the squares of masking tape and used the line to help start the checkerboard.
Take the spray paint and give it a good shake. The montana spray paint is so easy to use, as it comes out in a fine spray.
I used circular movements to cover the white spaces on the plate. I did this about three times around the plate. Then leave the plate to dry for about 30 minutes.
Take the time to take the masking tape off and voila one decorated plate.
