With the 4th of July a few
days away it’s not too late to create some last minute patriotic decorations.
Transform some basic plates, and create these Patriotic Glass Plates.
Customized glass plates for the 4th of July or any patriotic occasion are a
snap to make with FolkArt enamels glass paint. Feel free to use these plates as
wall decoration, or place them on a festive table.
This project is great for all crafters.
This is an easy project that will only take an hour or so to make. The creators
of this project are Cathie and Steve. They used a few supplies including
FolkArt enamel paints. Below is a full
list of supplies needed to create these plates, along with their instructions.
