Served On A Siver Platter

WARNING:
Super Easy Project Ahead!


Simply print a monogram from your computer,
on regular paper (no need for card stock).
Then cut it out being sure to stay inside the black
so the white of the paper doesn't show.
Using a regular ol' glue stick, adhere the monogram
to a silver platter or china serving plate.
Of course, this is FOR DISPLAY USE ONLY.
When you're tired of the display,
just remove it by soaking it in water.
How's that for a quick and easy project?

I'm so glad you posted this. I have a silver platter that I got in a box of random stuff at an auction and it's a little worn for food use. This would look great on the shelf I want to have in my kitchen! Thanks!!

Joy, I can always count on finding some more great ideas when I come by here. I just love the painted burlap, I've been trying to think of some things I could do with more of it. It's such a cheap fabric to use & looks so great.

Joy, Where did you find all of your lovely milk glass for your mantel. I don't have a mantel, but I do have a open area to the basement in my kitchen. Something like that would look great for this summer.

Bonnie said...

Is there any way that you can explain how to create such a large letter on the computer? Some of us are computer challenged! The largest font that I can find ends up being very small no matter what I do! Thanks. Bonnie

Cottagecheap said...

I linked my blog to this post. I didn't use a pic and linky....since I didn't take time to get permission. If it is okay I will happily go back and do so....

Further, see if you can help me with my delimna, about which I blog today!

Gale said...

More wedding obsession ahead..Use small silver trays with numbers for tables numbers. I see these at garage sales and thrift shops all of the time.
