You know I love a good plate wall.

From my eclectic dining room plate wall to the tons of inspiring ideas I’ve pinned to my Plate Wall Pinterest board, it’s obvious.

So what’s better than being able to create your own plate wall in any pattern and color you desire?

DIY Paisley Plate Wall

1) Buy cheap plates from the dollar store

2) Play around until you find the perfect arrangement

3) Stick self adhesive stencil to the plate (I used Martha Stewart Crafts paisley stencils)

4) Use a pouncer to apply paint and remove stencil immediately

5) Hang your masterpiece and stand back to admire it

Note:  Use whatever colors you love – I used 3 Martha Stewart Crafts paints:  Spring Pasture, Indigo and Pool (contains some affiliate links)

I love these invisible plate hangers and use them but since I didn’t have any on hand, I whipped up my own version with just 3 simple things.

DIY Invisible Plate Hangers - save tons of money by making these!

DIY Invisible Plate Hangers

1) Cut two circles of felt for each plate

2) Stick first felt circle to back of plate with a super glue (I used E-6000)

3) Place large paper clip so that the loop is above the lip of the back of the plate (see picture) and glue on with E-6000

4) Put more glue on the entire surface of the piece of felt and attach second piece of felt on top (sandwiching the paper clip between the two pieces of felt)

5) Let dry overnight and hang with a picture hanger

Note:  Don’t do this on valuable plates or hang over beds!

  2. What an awesome idea! I think I need to make a trip to Michael’s and Dollar Tree today, looks like a really fun project to make with my kids : )

  3. Love the bright colors and your hanging technique is inspired. :) Happy Monday, Kelly!

  12. Way to go Kelly!!! The plates turned out AMAZING!!!!!

    I need to get cracking on my project too! hehe

  13. Kelly, this is really awesome…I never realized you could do this with plates! I love the self hanger tutorial, too! Thanks for sharing!

  14. super cute plate wall! I love that paisley pattern!

  15. they are gorgeous Kelly! looks store-bought even! Just a quick question, these are just for diplay right? Not for any serving or anything right? Just wondering if you can use it to serve if you bake it and let the paint set? Dont have these kinds of paint yet so not sure if thes can be used for these kinds of plates. Anyway, if you can’t eat on them, they are pretty to look at anyway! :-)

  16. Love the look! And I really love that stencil!! I’ll be looking for it next time I’m at Michael’s. Beautiful.
    Debbie :)

  17. Kelly! These are great!!! Love the colors :)

  18. Very cute!

  19. Thanks for the hanger ideal!

  20. I’m a huge plate decorating fan too. I love the way they flow together. Is that an exterior wall? That would look great on my sunporch.

  21. This looks amazing! I never would have guessed you painted these, genius as always. And I totally love your Mcgyver moves on the plate hangers :)

  22. So pretty! Love the stencil and your plate hangers are pretty neat… can’t tell you how many times that would have come in handy. ;-)

  23. Kelly-Those are absolutely darling. I love the way they turned out..and those plate hangers are GREAT! xo Diana

  24. My visible plate hangers seem SO out of date. Thanks for showing how to make them invisible. Love the paisley stencil and the way you varied each plate. Just fabulous!

  25. These are super cute! I’m pinning/repinning!! LIttle Bit

  26. You put Martha to SHAME! I am in love with these and will definitely be trying this! Thanks for sharing. :)

  31. These are so sweet! I’ve always liked paisley and your color choices are very fresh and fun for spring. It looks like these are hanging in an outdoor space too….I like that idea. We have a wall of wooden fence that our deck butts up to and I would love to add some interest there.

  32. I love how you led one plate into the next by breaking the stencil pattern over the two plates… clever gal!

  34. Good tip about not hanging over the bed. Love these, wish I had an empty wall!

  35. Love, love this project! What a gorgeous idea. Stencils is one of my weakness. :) I have a new weekly link party which is live now and I would love if you stop by and link up this wonderful post! Hope to see you there! http://mariaelenasdecor.blogspot.com/

  36. How fun and creative is this. I love it. Thanks tons for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  37. Love it! I’ve looked and looked at Martha’s stencils at Michael’s…just couldn’t decide what to do. This is such a great idea!

  38. Love it! I’ve looked and looked at Martha’s stencils at Michael’s…just couldn’t decide what to do. This is such a great idea!

  39. Those are to die for. Now my brain is churning, thinking of all the rooms I could hang plates in & get away with it wthout looking like I just inherited a china shop!
    One question, before your hanging tutorial, you said “these” were your favorite late hangers, but since you didn’t have any on hand, you were making your own. Was there supposed to be a picture o a link to the “these” you referred to?

    Thanks, Darla

  40. What a great idea to paint some white plates! Can you eat off these or are they just for decoration on the wall?

    I’m hosting a “Craft With What You’ve Got” party and the featured crafting supply this week is craft paints. This project would fit in perfectly! I’d love for you to link it up here.
