Decoupaged Christmas Plates
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we adore Christmas. But it’s more than just the day-of and all the presents and all that. I just love the whole atmosphere, the decorating–and everything. One thing that was missing, though, was a fun plate to go with my dining room Christmas decor.
That’s where this gorgeous (and easy) decoupaged Christmas plate craft comes in play. I love farmhouse trucks (like really really) and when I saw this gorgeous printed paper, I knew what I had to do. Now, if you’re ready to make your Christmas dining room shine, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Decoupaged Holiday Plates
- I used the dishwasher safe Modge Podge to make this easy DIY decoupaged plate. You don’t have to use the same, you can just use school glue, but if there’s a spill or you want to wash your plates, you’ll be more satisfied with the durability of the finish if you use the dishwasher safe version.
- When you’re selecting the paper to use, you’re going to want something that’s thin, flexible and very holiday-ish. The holiday-ish is obvious, but the flexibility and thinness have real reasons. The less flexible the paper, the more difficult it will be to get it to form around the curves of the plate, and the thicker the paper, the less the Modge Podge will soak into it. So, you’re just going to want it to be thin, flexible and holiday-ish.
- Allow the Modge Podge or glue to dry at least 24 hours before you use your plate. But, if you’ve got the time, let it cure for 72-hours. That way you know for certain if you need a second coat to work out any bubbles that showed-up.
- Work from the center outward when you’re putting your paper on the plate. That way all of the bubbles are worked out and not building-up together to one big bubble in the middle. That would be a tragedy.
- I found an awesome video tutorial here that gave me this idea–so be sure to check that out, because it’s really awesome.
