Here’s a tutorial for making a wreath using a platter. Yes, I said platter. I love using unconventional items for projects. I was actually given this star platter and was going to garage sale it. But, then inspiration struck me!
Here’s what you need:
- Any Shape Platter
- Chalk Board Paint
- Paint Brush
- Drill Bit (I used 5/16″. You could even go smaller.)
- A Piece of Chalk
First, I polished the star platter with a little silver polish. I think it is silver plated because it polished up quite nicely.
Next, drill a hole into the top of the platter.
Paint the chalk board paint onto the platter. I used Martha Stewart’s chalk board paint. O.k. I have to be honest here. I didn’t think the paint was going to work on the surface of this platter. The bottle of chalkboard paint also said multi-surface. But as I painted my first layer of paint, I thought this was going to be a big project fail. However, it turned out great. I had to add several layers though, at least 5 layers.
There you have it! A one of kind 4th of July star decoration for the front door.
