DIY-plate-Display With Vintage photos
You will learn how to create a DIY plate display on a budget! In this project, I used vintage photos for the perfect mother’s Day gift.
Inspired by some plates wall hangings I had seen online, I decided to combine antique plate, chalkboard paint, vintage photos and hook in a display! My plate wall display includes old photo of my mom, dad and the grandparents.
